PROPERTY DESCRIPTION:

Welcome to Playa Blanca! I bought this place in 2014 and have since built a cosy home with a beautiful lush garden. Being a world traveler myself, I try to offer guests the things I am happy to get during my travels: comfortable beds, 100% cotton sheets, big enough towels, a fully equipped kitchen with sharp knives and non stick pans, and an overall clean and welcoming place. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Playa Blanca is a beautiful place where you can watch both the sunrise and sunset from your own private deck, have a meal al fresco overlooking lake Petén Itzá, and wake up to the sound of birds and hawler monkeys.

Yes, we are in the jungle, and while the house is pretty much free of critters (they’ll come around if you leave food outside, so please leave it in the fridge!), we are still surrounded by wildlife. There are monkeys, toucans, and many other animals inhabiting the jungle. You will seldom see them, and regarding insects, we take every precaution to make sure the house is free of them. There are mosquito nets on the windows and we regularly inspect the place for nests.

We take pride in offering this place to guests, and hope you will love your stay. If anything is not up to your standards, please let the staff know and they will do their very best to make you happy. I am not around all the time, but am usually just a text message or email away.

You can check in at any time after 2pm, my staff will either wait for you or give you instructions. The area is very safe and the lake is clean and safe too. This part of Lake Petén Itzá is still wild and quiet, at night you will hear hawler monkeys and frogs, you can fish, hike in the jungle, etc.

Most groups come for two or three nights, wake up early to visit Tikal the next day (one hour ride, 10 miles dirt, 20 miles asphalt), and come back to a refreshing swim in the lake and sunset. You are a five minute walk away from the village, but you should bring all your foods and drinks from Flores because it is basic. See below for details about buses and logistics, although for groups over 3 people, it really makes sense to rent a car to explore the area, whether you stay with me or not.

THE ROOMS

There are two rooms in the house, one with a queen bed, a walk-in closet and a private bathroom, one with two twin beds, a private bathroom and plenty of storage space.
There is a separate casita with a twin bedroom and its private bathroom for groups over 4.
We can put a third mattress in the twin to avoid people sleeping in the living room.
The rooms have big French doors overlooking the garden and the lake.
The both are equipped with a fan, and we provide 100% cotton sheets and bath towels.
While the village is pretty quiet, you will hear birds and hawler monkeys in the morning.

KITCHEN

The house has a fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals for your group. Contact us if you need us to arrange meals for you. We need advance notice to shop for fresh food and have staff available, so it is not always an option.

The kitchen is spacious and has a big electric stove oven with four burners. There is a fridge and freezer. We have enough pots, pans, plates and cutlery to accommodate groups.

The kitchen has a French press for coffee, an Oster blender that can crush ice, sharp knives and non stick pans. There is a vegetable peeler, ice trays, wine and beer opener, and most things you would need to prepare a nice meal.

You will also find 5 gallon clay water filter for drinking.

TERRACE AREA
We have a nice terrace overlooking the lake, where you will love to rest after a day exploring Mayan ruins. It is generally cool during the day thanks to big trees casting their shade over it. It is fully roofed, so you are covered if it rains.
There are hammocks and chairs as well as coffee tables.

BEACH AND DECK:

The private beach is 80 meters /250ft wide, it has a deck with a couple of hammocks, and the water is generally crystal clear, it gets a bit muddy on the rainy days. The best sunsets are from October to February. The lake is around 25C /75F degrees year round so you can swim at any time. It is safe for kids.

STAFF:

Before you arrive, the housekeeper does a deep cleaning of the house. If anything is not up to your standards please ask my staff.

I have a full time guardian who works from 7am to 4pm. He will be there to greet you if you arrive early enough, or will leave the house open for you, and meet you the next morning. Every day, he cleans up the trash and tidies the common areas. He will answer your questions and help you with anything you need. Then he generally goes away to work on my other property, but will stay around as long as you need, if there is a leak or something broke for example.

You will be alone at night, he can be reached by text or phone in case of an emergency. The area is very safe so you can leave all doors open at night and enjoy the breeze.

If you need help preparing meals or doing laundry, we can arrange that for an extra fee.

My guardian is very hard working, patient, and eager to help. He does not speak English but will understand most problems if you point, or go online for automatic translation.

GETTING THERE / AMENITIES

It is better if you have your own vehicle, but you can also come by bus. There is a 5 mile stretch of dirt road to get to the house.

Most of the year, the road is in ok shape, it gets bad with the rains around September but except for a few days per year you can access with a normal car. Otherwise by bus, there are 6 buses a day from Flores to San Pedro, or you can take a microbus hourly from Flores to San José, 6 miles away, and hire a Q40/$5 tuktuk from there. It takes about 40 minutes by car to go to Flores and one hour to Tikal, 1 hour by bus to go to Flores. You can take a bus to Flores, then to Tikal to visit the ruins. First bus at 445am puts you in Flores around 540am so you can leave on the morning flight to Guatemala City.

I can put you in touch with a driver too. I don’t charge anything for that, and you deal with him directly. Everyone so far has been very pleased with his services but, in case you are not, remember you are dealing with him directly. He charges around $40 for Flores/Flores airport pickup, grocery shopping and driving you to my house, and $100 for a day in Tikal. A car rental will be cheaper. Look up rates on Kayak for Hertz and others.

Our village is small and you will find basic shops that sell mostly dry goods and drinks. The nearest supermarket where you will find more choice is 20 miles/30km away. We recommend you bring your food from Flores if you like to cook.

MEALS

We can provide meals for you as well. The rate is Q35 (around $4) for breakfast, Q70 (around $9) for dinner. We also have to go all the way to Flores to shop for fresh food for you, so we may not always be able to offer meals. Please ask as much in advance as possible.

INTERNET

As much as we would love to have fast and unlimited internet for guests and ourselves, this area is remote and got electricity just a few years back. People never had landlines, so the best we can do for internet is to use a USB WIFI modem to get online, and the quality of connection varies greatly from day to day. It is enough for me to run my online business, but some guests have expected to be able to watch live football or listen to music for hours on end, and that is sadly an option only if you buy extra data credit for it AND the speed is good enough that day.

Our wifi dongle has a data limit of 500Mo per 24 hour and when it is up you can purchase more credit or we will put a new plan the next day. It is enough to email, go on social media and have a short phone conversation to make sure all is good back home. Enjoy the digital detox and the jungle!

If you stay for a couple of weeks in Guatemala you can buy your own SIM card for your smartphone. It costs around $5 and from $14 for 1Gb of data valid for 30 days. Highly recommended so you can get in touch with all your Airbnb guests.

GOOD TO KNOW

Mosquitoes are pretty rare, but you might want to plan for repellent, because there are quite a bit in Tikal. We usually get a few around sunset and that’s it.

I see about five scorpions a year, but they could be there. No one has ever gotten a bite in five years. Ignore them until they are far enough for you to kill them with your shoe. Don’t walk barefoot at night without a light.

If you leave food in the kitchen you might get cockroaches, mice or skunks. We clean the house before every arrival, and empty the trash every day for you. Keep food in the fridge, even bread, cereal bars and cookies, if the containers are open.

We can arrange laundry for a fee.

Ufikiaji wa mgeni
Whole house and beach. Happy to give you as much privacy or help as you need.

Mambo mengine ya kukumbuka
Sometimes (more during rainy season than dry), the power goes out. It’s usually for a couple of hours, or if a tree fell on the line after high winds, it could be the whole night.
We have candles for that, a backup gas stove, and batteries for your phone. Please don’t burn the candles for decoration, you may be in the dark when power goes out. This affects the whole area, we warn the electric company but can’t do much more about it. You will get the same situation everywhere else you stay in the region.

The area is very safe and you can park on the street. We leave the house open most of the day for ventilation and never had any trouble. Locals are very friendly. You’ll find keys to lock if you want.
