Each villa has a fully equipped kitchen with complete range of appliances - gas stove with oven, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, as well as dishes, pots and utensils and condiments* in your villa. Tea and coffee are complimentary.
For your convenience, you may also shop at our mini-convenience store at the office which offers an array of beverages, snack foods, and food for cooking, or if you prefer, let us shop for you and pre-stock your refrigerator upon your arrival. A list of grocery options will be emailed to you in advance or offered to you upon your arrival.
See our complete list of groceries (optional xls format). If you have specific requests not listed, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. If, however, you would rather have a meal prepared for you in your villa (breakfast and dinner) we can arrange our local gourmet cook to prepare a delicious meal in the comfort and privacy of your villa. You may choose from a selection of typical Guatemalan and continental dishes from our listed menu.
Also, should you prefer to dine out, we will gladly recommend a restaurant, as there are many wonderful fine or casual dining choices. We can arrange pizza delivery or other take-out meal brought to your villa. See the list of recommended restaurants in the area.
*Salt, sugar, honey, balsamic vinegar, soya sauce, olive oil, milk, herbs and spices are included in the villa.
