Eco-Hostel in the Rainforest of Tikal

5.25 a.m. Watching the SUNRISE from our bed, we see through the glass as the City of Voices starts to illuminate all around us. We get out to the balcony which extends THE PLATFORM THAT STANDS ABOVE THE TREES in which we slept and enjoyed the morning show.

6.30 a.m. Our room shelter descends to THE HORIZONTAL BASE where all the hostel communal services are and where we can take a shower. All the public spaces stand on a HORIZONTAL BASE to the tree top height. We take our breakfast in the dining room surrounded by vegetation and tropical sounds.

8.00 a.m. We get down from the hostel platform, which stands hidden between the leaves and we start our walk through the ruins. The slim structure that holds our capsules at night is barely seen because it is standing above the trees. At its end, solar cells recollect the necessary energy for the hostel functional requirements.

 1.00 p.m. We have lunch and rest in the raised platform where the museum is, while wait to see the exhibits.

2.00 p.m. We visit the exhibition halls of the museum that blend with the vegetation and offer a HIGH VIEWPOINT OVER THE RUINS, the site is part of the contents of the museum.

4.30 p.m. We share tips of our day with other guests in the hostel halls that are hidden by vegetation and have views to other parts of the ruins. Each space is different because it interacts with the surroundings in a unique way.

5.30 p.m. We rise with our shelter above the trees in time to enjoy the SUNSET. Rest and contemplate through the different capsule windows as the landscape goes off.
