traveler bed and breakfast + ecotoursWe offer Guatemala bed and breakfast for $10, $15 and $20 per person per night. Support communities and nature with a Buenas Cosas Guatemalan Bed and Breakfast. We have hammocks, shared rooms, private rooms, entire homes. Tree-houses too. There’s a bed and breakfast for every budget and taste.

If you want more than bed and breakfast, we’ve got Guatemala family meals. Healthy Guatemalan food for carnivores, omnivores, vegans and vegetarians. Want to cook, use our Maya kitchen. Our Maya kitchen was first used by a visiting French Pastry chef – one of our previous volunteers. He cooked some awesome meals in our Maya kitchen. If you want to cook, your Maya kitchen is waiting :)

Most of our bed and breakfast participants visit Peten Guatemala to experience Tikal and perhaps a bit of shopping in Flores. Buenas Cosas has everything you need for an authentic Guatemalan vacation: bed and breakfast, good food, friendly English-speaking guides, safe and secure transport to Tikal and a dozen other Maya points-of-interest in the surrounding area. Afterall, Peten is the birthplace of the Maya :)

Peten and the Maya Itza people were the last Maya to fall to the Spanish conquistadors. The Maya of Peten held-off the Spaniards for 150+ years.

Peten and its Maya were devastated by the civil war that ended in 1996. The people of Peten are amazingly resilient, kind and generous.

Adventures, guides, transport, tours, volunteer opportunities and a host of workshops are all easily arranged. All donation guidelines are affordable because Buenas Cosas is nonprofit. We’ve been doing nonprofit ecotourism and voluntourism here in Peten since 2011. We know what we’re doing and we’re happy to share our video testimonials.
