Earth Lodge, Gu­atemala

Good - - TRAVEL -

Bud­get friendly as well as sus­tain­able, a stay at Earth Lodge, just out­side of An­tigua, won’t break the bank. The eco lodge and its tree houses have mil­lion-dol­lar views of the mag­nif­i­cent vol­ca­noes that en­cir­cle An­tigua. Ac­com­mo­da­tion ranges from rus­tic ca­banas and dorm beds to camp­ing. Day trip­pers are wel­come to share a meal and lounge in a ham­mock or deck chair. The Lodge also en­com­passes an av­o­cado farm of more than 400 trees, so you won’t run short on gua­camole dur­ing the twice-yearly har­vest. Earth Lodge is in­volved in the lo­cal com­mu­nity, par­tic­u­larly the vil­lage school. It fundraises to buy school sup­plies, food for the breakfast pro­gramme, and has helped the school se­cure run­ning water and money for a com­puter lab.
