Hotel Chinimaya

Attractive colonial-style hotel with a colonnaded ochre exterior, simple but cheerful guestrooms and a peaceful courtyard area.

The attractive and peaceful colonial-style Hotel Chinimaya has a lovely colonnaded exterior, a leafy courtyard and a cheerful, sunny colour scheme of oranges and yellows. The location allows easy access to the centre of Panajachel without subjecting guests to the noise and bustle of the town centre.

Accommodation is simple but inviting, with patchwork bedspreads and plenty of light streaming into the spacious rooms. The friendly staff will go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one.

What our clients say

  • We loved all of it for different reasons, what made the trip exceptional though was the ease of travelling facilitated by the local representatives.

    GW, Chinnor
  • We knew nothing about Guatemala and Belize before our trip and had not visited Central America.  We relied on JLA understanding our interests and the resulting recommendations proved very successful.

    NW, Wells
  • Tikal jungle setting had the ultimate combination of wildlife, environment, landscape and ruins.

    SW, Telford
  • The stay at LA Lancha and visiting Tikal and Yaxha.  Also, our stay at Chan Chich

    JW, Bedford
  • Highlights:- So many memories, I think I have to say Lake Atitlan.

    KW
  • Many different aspects combined to make a memorable trip. Hidden Valley has real charm, Tikal was amazing and San Pedro was relaxing
