A perfect set-up for a semi-rustic getaway. Nice, clean cabins, ours had a bathroom with hot water, and a hammock in our terrace. No TV, no internet, no cell phone.. only the sounds of the jungle. We took a raft thru the river, a walk thru the jungle and an amazing archaeological site, and all of it it was a...

I gave it 5 stars because for the area, it was absolutely a great choice. But it is not a frilly place. I stayed in cabin 3, which is right on the river, but without an indoor bathroom. The bathroom, with toilets, showers, etc., is a 2 minute walk up a path, or outside of your cabin into the dense...

We stayed here for one night at the end of a 5 day kayaking adventure into the Lacandon Jungle. All I wanted was a hot shower, a change of clothes and a beer. We were shown to our room, a rustic cabin alongside the river, and quickly established that not only were the showers communal, but that no towel was...

We arrived unannounced, were immediately made to feel welcome and shown to a pretty, rustic cabin with amazing views of the river. We stayed for three days and during that time were given a guided walk through the rain forest with Alfredo ( a chunky, friendly, knowledgeable local) and his dog, Rocky (a dog), visited local ruins, Bonampak, and ate...

Let's be honest, the setting is amazing. Really really awesome. But that doesn't make it all. The very poor service for what is a luxury price in Mexico (especially in Chiapas) really disappointed us. First, we were shown only the most expensive cabins, which have the poorest view of the hotel. We had to ask for the cheapest ones, which...

We had just returned from the river trip to Yaxchilan. A short walk from the dirt road takes you through jungle. The cabins look blank and uninteresting from the rear. Go up the steps on to the veranda and you are met with a glimpse of paradise. Crystal clear water and luxuriant jungle take your breath away. Accommodation simple [choice...

No TV, Internet, Cellphone signal, just the perfect setting to be away from mundane technology so you can fully enjoy nature, the Lacandona Jungle, rafting, walks to the waterfalls and archeological sites. Very clean, nice fully equipped bathrooms camping style.

Fine stop over on the way to Bonampak, Yaxchilan, or Piedras Negras: Deciding at the last minute to move on to Bonampak from the Yaxchilan trip we look for someplace to stay. From the back jungle roads, we picked Campamento Rio Lacanja without great expectations. Joel greeted us as we pulled up late afternoon. He could not have been more...

I have stayed in this camp for 3 nights while visiting the region (Oct 2013). It is a very beautiful place in the Lacandon rainforest. The place is run by an indigenous family and is very eco friendly. The cabañas were large and tidy as was the central bathroom. From here we visited the sites of Yaxchilan and Bonampak. As...

I´ve been there for 2 nights. The place is managed by a family who live near the camp. The place is very familiar. The food was great. The room was by the river, clean and really good designed.
