The traditional Mayan chicken and the stir fry was delicious and cheap!! The mango vodka was like a frozen slushy and perfect to cool you down. Would recommend.

We had a private room for 2, conviently located over the kitchen, a good wake up call at 5am. The food was fine. A highlight was a Maya artist painting 2 large ancient figures on a wall.

It was bad enough that they did not include coffee with breakfast, but then they charged us full price for refills. Our bill for coffee alone ended up being as much as the breakfast. The Supremo breakfast was not at all Supreme; avoid this place...More

A delightfully decorated/painted/muraled hostel/restaurant that delivers an excellent backpacker's vibe and a menu with several Mayan style dishes. I got the Fish special and it was delightful. The fish was pan-fried lightly and perfectly, covered with a generous salsa-like tomato topping. Their chips and salsa...More
