Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: La Mayur was founded in 2012 by two intrepid global travelers from Canada, with an insatiable taste for adventure and who are committed to the conservation and preservation of Utila. Peacocks breed in Quiebra Piedra,the Botanical Garden adjacent to La Mayur and the birds are a beautiful sight from La Mayur. Mayur in Sanskrit means “Peacock” whose exotic beauty captured our minds on our very first visit to Utila, hence the name La Mayur. Wrapped in the cool embrace of Pumpkin Hill, lush vegetation of Quiebra Piedra, the Botanical Garden, and view of the Caribbean sea, the ambience that the cottage exudes is irresistibly appealing to every lover of Nature. As the daylight spills across your bed, awaken to a divers paradise or plan to make it a theme wedding destination. La Mayur is a proud supporter of the local community. Proceeds from your stay support the local schools including a non profit organization Children of Utila
