Finding Zephyr Lodge

Once you are in Lanquin Town (San Agustin Lanquin) you will arrive at the main junction of the town of Lanquin, Turn left and after about 50 meters on your lefthand side you will find a small Coca Cola stand with a school opposite and a big sign saying Zephyr Lodge.

This alleyway will lead you to Zephyr Lodge (3 minute walk).You can always just ask the local people rather then just trusting on bus drivers’ information, who usually drop off people at established hotels for commissions and most likely will try and tell you we are full.You can write down our telephone numbers beforehand, and ring us on your arrival for a complimentary ride from any location in town. If you get lost give us a call for directions. Phone: (502) 5168 2441
