We spent one week at Kohunlich and the place & hotel are truly an experience. You will find a five star hotel in the middle of the jungle; with an extraordinary food and all that you need. Every day you will have an excursion that could be kayaking, swimming in a beautiful lagoon or biking in the middle of the jungle. You will need to be there!

As Good As Advertised

Explorean is a unique experience and is far, far better than I expected. Great facility, wonderful staff and interesting and unique adventures. Takes getting used to not having TV or Internet in your room but the main areas have robust Internet and frankly part of the reason you are there. All inclusive and all the staff works to make sure you are satisfied.
