The hotel prides itself on the pristine beauty of its surroundings (secluded beach, protected national park with many plant and wildlife species) and the small scale nature of its lodgings – only 15 bungalows whose architecture blends into the environment. There’s a wellness center and spa, and yoga classes, too. If you prefer something even more active, you can go on a tour of the biosphere reserve and the nearby Mayan ruins. You can also go kayaking, birdwatching and fishing. But if you prefer to relax and read a book, they have a library stocked with over 300 books. Hotel Eco Paraiso is also ideal for weddings and honeymoons.
