Beautiful and Secluded

Tilapita is off the beaten path.  Walking down the beach at sunrise or sunset is magical, peaceful and rejuvinating.


La Playa Tilapa is located in the Southwest corner of Guatemala only about 10 miles south of the Mexican border. This very small fishing village is a perfect place for a quiet weekend or a secluded week at the beach. The little town of Tilapa is rustic and a bit dirty but a quick 10 minute boat ride to Tilapita and you will be sitting on a almost deserted beach watching the waves and sipping a cold beer!

Take the Golondrina bus from the Minerva Terminal in Xela going to the town of Coatepeque. The bus runs every 30 minutes or so. From Coatepeque look for the Santa Lucia bus line which runs to La Blanca and onward to Tilapa. It will take approx 5 hours by bus from Xela.   Tilapa is at the very end of the bus line. Once you reach the end, get off the bus and walk to your left toward the boat docks. You can hire a boat to take you to Tilapita for Q10/person. Tell the lanchero you want to go El Rancho de Don Tom y Doña Mary!

There are a few small stores in Tilapita that sell basic items like drinks, chips, ice, water...etc.  These stores are very small and usually poorly stocked.  It is best to bring the food you will need with you.

Yes, the cabin is located beside Hotel Pacific Mar, the only hotel in Tilapita. The hotel has a great restaurant with 4 main dishes: Shrimp breaded or fried in Garlic, Fried Fish, Seafood Stew or Eggs and beans.
