Popol Vuh Reviews

Comfortable, relaxing place, recommended for groups/couples

We stayed for a week in their simplest cabana with shared bathroom and had a good experience overall. The cabana was cleaned daily, and the bathrooms were in decent shape. Only one sink and shower were working, which could be a challenge when the place is full during high season. The kitchen looked pretty battered, but we never used it as there's plenty of cheap food around. This is not a place where people mingle, so while it's ideal for young, budget conscious couples, I wouldn't recommend it for solo travelers. Our cabin was for a couple, but I also saw some cabins with 2 floors that can accommodate more people. The location was as good as it gets, in the middle of everything and a block from the bus station and just steps from the beach.


Popol-Vuh is a good place to hang your hat for a few days, as long as you don't mind a rusty hook. The place is in pretty rough shape if you're using the cabanas without the toilets and showers. The kitchen is slim pickins too. One really good frying pan. Some super basic utensils but a nice fridge. The place is chained shut at night so you better coordinate who gets the key. Two of the four fire extinguishers read as "recharge/replace." When we were there, I had to shake the gas canister to finish cooking our dinner, then there was no gas for two days after. All the negative aside however, we found the place strangely relaxing and figured we would stay there again. Great breakfast at the restaurant across the street, and you can drink with the mariachi bands for 12 peso beers at the little bar by the main gate.
