Lonely Planet review
On the Río La Colocha, just across the water from the Castillo San Felipe, this beautiful, simple Australian/Mexican-run place is built on stilts in the mangroves. The whole place is constructed from wood, with thatched roofs, and windows are mosquito-netted – there's not a pane of glass in sight.
Wildlife is particularly abundant around here, with blue warblers, pelicans, a seven-foot iguana and turtles making the surrounds their home. There's also a bar-restaurant. Drinks on the deck overlooking the river are a great way to start, finish or while away the day. The beguiling menu features some Aussie classics and probably the best Mexican food you're likely to find outside of Mexico. Call from Río Dulce or San Felipe and they'll come and pick you up for free, even if you're just dropping in for lunch.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Kangaroo and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Río Dulce.
