We wish to make it clear that Lanquin is set in a rural area and on occasion, especially in the rainy season the electricity may fail for a day or two.
We have 2 freindly cats at the house that help keep unwanted animals away. As in any área near jungle and in the countryside insects will be present in varying amounts throughout the year. The harmless cave dwelling bats help keep the numbers of mosquitoes and other small flying insects to a mínimum however.

I am originally from England, but left to travel and work in Latin America 16 years ago when i was 24. After travelling and working as a guide and English teacher all over Latin America I decide to move to Lanquin to co develop a well known Backpackers hostel in Lanquin, which I left after over 10 years . During my time developing the hostel I also built La Poza Riverside Guesthouse as my personal home. I now live in Panajachel at Lake Atitlan with my wife and two young daughters, so rent the house in Lanquin for tourists wanting to visit Semuc Champey. We also have a house in Panajachel, near the Lake that we rent for visitors to Panajachel.
The house was my personal house that I built over 6 years ago. I moved to Panajachel by Lake Atitlan where my wife lived for 12 years and where we base ourselves with our two daughters. We then decided to rent La Poza as a vacation rental for families and small groups who want their own house for their vacation.
The house gives you the oportunity to 'switch off', and 'get away from it all'. The constant sound of the river, the peace of the area and the nature allows you to relax and spend quality time with your companions, but be near enough to the attractions of Lanquin to enjoy a fun vacation with adventure, nature and even fiesta at the nearby hostels. The house is a country house, and been developed to lend all the services for a very comfortable stay.
River surfing. We provide a surf board, which can be used to surf the river from a rope tied to a tree. This can only be done when the river is at a medium or high level. Tubing, the house has various truck inner tubes that you can use to float down the River Lanquin from the Lanquin caves back to the house for a hot drink or cocktail on the balcony overlooking the river.
