About The Owner

La Mayur was founded in 2012 by two intrepid global travelers from Canada, with an insatiable taste for adventure and who are committed to the conservation and preservation of Utila. Peacocks breed in Quiebra Piedra,the Botanical Garden adjacent to La Mayur and the birds are a beautiful sight from La Mayur. Mayur in Sanskrit means “Peacock” whose exotic beauty captured our minds on our very first visit to Utila, hence the name La Mayur.

Wrapped in the cool embrace of Pumpkin Hill, lush vegetation of Quiebra Piedra, the Botanical Garden, and view of the Caribbean sea, the ambience that the cottage exudes is irresistibly appealing to every lover of Nature. As the daylight spills across your bed, awaken to a divers paradise or plan to make it a theme wedding destination.

La Mayur is a proud supporter of the local community. Proceeds from your stay support the local schools including a non profit organization Children of Utila

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

This property is well located. Although its walking distance to town its far enough for a quiet and tranquil vacation. Its nicely built with a scenic view and modern comfort. We stayed for three weeks and had a wonderful time. I would recommend this for anyone who needs a quiet and relaxing vacation but also enjoy diving and beach activities. Restaurants and shopping is close by and the taxis cost only $1 per person. Its secluded but safe at all times for walking.

The island also has the largest local population of whale sharks and a research centre dedicated to studying them.It’s easily accessible by daily flights or by a short ferry ride from La Ceiba.Celebrate your destination wedding in a secluded beach paradise where white sand, swaying palms and calm waters set a romantic experience. The island’s stunning natural landscape provides the perfect backdrop for the ultimate tropical marriage ceremony, and the turquoise waters make for some dramatic photographs on the day.

Say “I do” surrounded by blue skies, turquoise waters and lush island landscapes. Once vows have been exchanged, feast on local seafood with family and friends.
