Paradise Found: La Lancha, Guatamala

If you are looking for a holiday that is exotic, relaxing and secluded that La Lancha may be the place for you. Created, designed and owned by Francis Ford Coppola, you can rest assure that your privacy will be a priority. When the acclaimed director first visited Belize it was love at first sight. He put his money where his heart was and bought the Blancaneaux Lodge and the Turtle Inn. La Lancha is his third venture which is near Tikal just across the Belize border into Guatemala.

Coppola’s personal vision for Blancaneaux Lodge is one of rustic comfort in harmony with its surroundings. He invested in a private hydroelectric plant that harnesses the power of the Privassion River and gives the Lodge 24 hour electricity. He plans to use the surplus heat that the hydro generates for a spa.
