Tutzil Nah Cottages

Maya Center Village, Stann Creek

Hotel Description
The Cottage is located right beside of the houses owned by the Chun family and so you can be prepared to become an extended family member when you stay here. The cottage has two separate rooms with a connecting door if you want to rent both rooms. Each room has a double bed, fan and table. The bathroom and showers (all cement) are located just down the stairs outside the house. The Chun family has a host of excellent cooks who can dish up delicious, traditional Mayan food for you and show you how to make it! Gregorio and his brothers are also excellent guides, ready to share their rich natural and cultural heritage with you.

History & Owners
Tutzil Nah is Mayan for ?Thatched Houses." The business was opened a bit up the road in November 2000; however a fire devastated the property in 2003 and destroyed everything. They have since rebuilt the accommodations and reopened in November 2003. Gregorio and his brothers are relatively young and got into the hotel and guiding business as a way to help support their families.

Location & Directions
Maya Center Village
Maya Center, located directly on the Southern Highway, is less than 20 miles from the junction of the Hummingbird Highway (Valley Road) and Southern Highway. To get to Maya Center, you can drive or take a bus going to Punta Gorda from Dangriga (or vice versa) and get off at Maya Center. It?s also possible to hire a taxi from Dangriga or arrange with Gregorio to be picked up in Dangriga. As you enter the village, Tutzil Nah is visible on the right from the highway, just after the first set of speed bumps. There is a large sign marking the property. If you cannot find it, stop and ask anyone and they can point you in the right direction. The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary (Jaguar Preserve) is just a six-mile trip away.
