Information About What Is Included in Our Vacation Packages:

Accommodations are at Casa Vela Lodge which is located within an extremely secure and safe gated community. The community is generally made up of wealthy Guatemalan weekend chalet owners. The neighborhood is always patrolled and has video cameras dotted throughout with security 24/7. Casa Vela Lodge sits on a canal that weaves through the palm tree lined neighborhood and is only four minutes away from the marina. Air conditioning is in all bedrooms, also there is an air conditioned lounge with a flat panel TV, local cable and an English channel news program. This is a great place to view those videos you took during the day! The large pool is surrounded by coconut trees, a palm covered cabana and hammocks.

Our gated community and lodge grounds are constantly sprayed for mosquitos.
