5 Quick Tips for your visit to Earth Lodge
- Walk down to reach us
- Don’t miss out on our delicious restaurant
- Making your way to the nature escape
- Book in advance
- Come on up just for the day
We are putting your fitness to the test! Because we are situated at the foot of a steep 300m hill which you have to walk down to reach us, here is a small list of things we recommend you bring with you:
Walking Shoes: Nothing extreme, just something with a grip. The path can get a bit slippery - especially during rainy season.
Warm Clothes: Bring a light jacket or a sweater as it gets a bit chilly at night.
Flashlight: A flashlight is handy if you're arriving at night and for getting around the lodge when it's dark or a great prop for telling scary stories around the bonfire.
*Unfortunately, Earth Lodge is not wheelchair accessible or conducive to those with injuries that inhibit walking.
Our restaurant is very well known for its home cooked (mostly vegetarian) meals.
The kitchen hours are:
- Breakfast and lunch, 8am-3pm (20-65Q depending on what is ordered)
- Family style dinner, 7-7:30 pm (70Q per person).
We have a full bar with happy hour each night from 5pm to 7pm, plus plenty of non- alcoholic options.
* We do not offer kitchen facilities to guests nor do we lend out dishes or other supplies.
**We ask that guests who do bring their own snacks or drinks, consume them in their rooms or away from the restaurant area.
We are located in a small village called Aldea El Hato, about 20 minutes by car outside of Antigua (7km).
Recommended ways to get here (see more)
Shuttle We can arrange for a driver to bring you up and down for a cost
Car: Driving directions to Earth Lodge can be found here (Google map). If you are driving and are a first time visitor, we recommend that you arrive before it's dark, the road can be narrow at points and it can be a bit precarious if you don’t know where you are going.
*We ask that guests do not walk from Antigua as there have been several robberies reported along the road about 1km outside Antigua
We are a small and friendly lodge. Our rooms and magical tree house (rooms and rates) are comfortable and rustic. We only can sleep about 38 people if every bed is full, so please make sure to book at least a week in advance.
*Guests must arrive before 9pm to check
If you don't have time to stay the night at Earth Lodge, come up just for the day! We can organize transportation to and from Antigua. We have a wide range of activities for all ages and our restaurant’s delicious home cooked meals and stunning view.
