About el Hotelito Perdido
El Hotelito Perdido is a small jungle hideaway. It is located in the middle of the rainforest on Río Lampara, a small river connected to Río Dulce.
We are located across the river from the Mineral Hot Springs, close to Waterfall Lampara, and a short journey from the Manatee Reserve. By boat we are a 45-minute ride from the town of Río Dulce, and a 30-minute trip through the magnificent Río Dulce Canyon to the funky Garifuna town of Livingston.
El Hotelito Perdido is eco-sensitively designed to blend into the landscape with thatched roofs and charming wooden structures. Accommodation ranges from our three-bed "Jungle Loft" to cozy two-story bungalows with private bathrooms. With only three private cottages and two rooms, it feels pleasantly exclusive. We offer drinks, and restaurant services (breakfast, lunch, and dinner, always with a vegetarian option), which includes our own homemade bread.
We rent kayaks and wooden cayucos, there is dock to swim from, beautiful tropical gardens with fruit trees and flowers, plenty of hammocks to relax in, games to play and good books to read. There is a communal house with a bar, lounge and candlelit restaurant. Near the communal house is a barbeque area and there is a hammock house and Yoga house by the dock.
At el Hotelito Perdido we strive to minimize our impact on the environment. We are fully solar powered, our food is mostly organic and purchased locally. We are consciously helping to reforest the jungle.
We are offering an opportunity to an enthusiastic volunteer, willing to engage in whatever needs to be done here. All ages are welcome, the main requirements are: proficiency in Spanish and English, a commitment to stay at least two months, good personal presentation and politeness. Yoga instructors, Spanish teachers, and masseurs are especially welcome — personal income from these occupations is a possibility.
