our history

Takalik Maya Lodge

Since 2003, travelers were received in that beautiful coffee farm from the mid-19th century, which was dedicated to the production and export of the best coffee on the south coast. But the collapse of the coffee market was the main reason why new ways of generating income for the community San Antonio Cantón Barrios were sought, action that was taken in order to avoid migration of its population.

Thus, in 2005 TAKALIK MAYA LODGE emerged as a unique tourist destination that is home of thousands of travelers.
