Had a really good time with la Danta Project. Met interesting and kindly local Maya families, learned about permaculture and made some amazing coconut oïl. It was a very enriching experience.

What a nice week spent with our Maya family! Thank you for your hospitality, it was a stay full of inspiration for us. We learn so much about medicinal plants, plus how to Cook tamalitos and how to make organic soap. We would definitely come back!

Met some wonderfully kind and skilled local Maya families. Learned to make coconut oil, traditional Mayan food and Maya medicinal rainforest plants. So close to the beach – huge plus. Thanks, Memo!

Memo is the ultimate beach house host for la Danta Project – wants nothing more than to help the local Maya people – talking with with him is very interesting. When you go to la Danta Project, stay longer. Always lots of adventure travelers. Enjoyed the beach house where you can swim, no crocodiles! lol

La Danta project was an unexpected heart-warming experience for me. Had a brilliant time hanging at the beach house and helping local Maya families. There are lots of activies and possibilies for doing good in the Maya beach communities – do it. La Danta Project is exactly what adventure travel should be about – give a little (or a lot) and you get a hell of a lot of love back. Just a wicked idea, wicked location, wicked people and an absolutely GROOVY beach house host. Anyone with a good heart, go to la Danta Project and explore it to the fullest!

Me gustó mi estancia con la Danta y su antifiron Memo, es una excelente persona me dio estancia de manera amable, me platico sobre el proyecto de la Danta que es muy interesante ya que realmente ayuda a la comunidad Maya de San José PetenFue una experiencia agradable, sería bueno regresar para quedarme más tiempo a ayudar en le proyecto, 100% recomendable. ;) Pd. La ubicación es excelente tiene la laguna enfrente de la casa y es muy fácil llegar desde ahí a Tikal o hacer el recorrido con guías locales (el mejor precio que vas a encontrar) a él sitio arqueológico el Mirador.

This place was amazing and a perfect break from our motorcycle trip to Panama. Drank some beers. Hung out at the beach. Swam every day. It was perfect!
