Thanks, Andrea! Easy to be great hosts to great guests and your group were just that. We truly enjoyed your visit and hope you return.
We stayed in a casita with our kids. The bed was comfortable, and while it was quite hot, it cooled down enough at night to be comfortable. We slept to the sounds of insects, birds, and howler monkeys as our "white noise". Do note that...More

I'm not sure if Lee checks TripAdvisor for comments, but my wife and I were guests at Tranquility Lodge last June (2014), so I can at least tell you what we did . . . There are some trails right on the property, as well as swimming (though the rains had made the creek/swimming hole muddy when we were there). We went to the Mayan sites of Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit one day, with a stop at Coleman's Restaurant, all of which I can recommend. We also went to the Mayan site of Uxbenka, which isn't as well excavated/developed, and was part of a trip that I don't think is normally available. You can also go to a local chocolate factory. We ran out of time to do that, so can't comment on what it's like. But it's chocolate, so how bad could it be?
We were supposed to go kayaking on one of the local rivers, but a big rainstorm prevented that (which is why we went to Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit). There are a couple of kayaking options in the area.
