There are limited beds at the ashram, so book early to secure your spot (and the best rate). The rooms are private singles and doubles as well as four-bed dorms. There are hammocks and communal areas available to all. Please note that it's located in a tropical traditional Mayan village in the third world, which also means that noise and other occasional inconveniences cannot be completely avoided. However, there are not many mosquitos at all and there are no dangerous diseases, insects, or other animals around.
