Description

Part of the Naha eco-tourism complex, Pach Ha is on the shore of Laguna Na Ha. In January of 2017 the community was putting the finishing touches on a spectacular office and a restaurant building. For a small fee we were a könnenllowed to camp near the lake and use the restrooms in the not-yet-open restaurant. There were no showers, no power, no internet, no cell coverage. We hired a guide to take us on a short canoe ride and a hike through the surrounding forest. This is several thousand feet above sea level so the vegetation is much different than the lower elevations by the Usumacinta River. An hour of the drive is on dirt, sometimes a bit rough, but no real issues. This is a community project, trying to bring some income to a very rural area. They charged us a small fee.

Pach Ja is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy peace, quiet and the natural beauty of the lake and surrounding jungle. I stayed two nights, felt very safe and comfortable. At the entrance/ exit at Naha there is a place where you can leave your trash.

We stopped here after visiting Metzabok... the road is a dirt track so a good spot to break up the journey to Nueva Palestina (Los Golondrinas waterfall). The construction has now been completed with three cabanas, great showers available, huge restaurant (not always open) and the Artesanal reception building. A local family manage the property and super friendly - we were able to park in the shaded area under the trees and make a camp fire with help from the manager (name is Chanbok? meaning little sun in Mayan). They offered a boat tour to see lagartos, their eggs and perhaps turtles for 300 peso - we didn't have time to do the tour. The lake entrance is shallow and the deeper areas full of water reeds so difficult to have a decent swim. Beautiful mirador built for a great morning exercise platform. Showers and bathrooms both very clean and good order. Now offering wifi for 15 peso per hour if needed.

I camped by the lake in a tent. Fee was 100 pesos. They have cabañas for 600 pesos. I was the only guest on the property. Wi-Fi is available for 20 pesos for 1 hour. The restaurant mentioned appears to be complete however it wasn't open. Perhaps because it's the off-season? Peaceful place to stay.
