Martita: Diminutive for Marta Acay Jeatz or “la Nana”, as she was affectionately known, matriarch of the Cuc Jeatz family and mother of Mundo Maya co-owner, María Cuc.
Ironically, la Nana didn’t get much rest in her long life. She worked hard to raise her seven children as a single mother after her husband Luis passed away in 1970. In April 2016, la Nana passed away just short of her 90th birthday. She is remembered for being practical, business savvy, family-oriented, loving, strong, empathetic and religious, among other attributes. Posada Martita, the bed and breakfast named after her, is located in Barrio San Antonio, on the northwest edge of the city of Sololá, in the heart of Kakchiquel territory. We built the bed and breakfast on land deeded to us by Doña Marta.
We named the bed and breakfast Posada Martita to honor and memorialize her gift of land as well as her intelligence, tenacity, resilience, and foresight. We appreciate her guidance, foresight, wisdom, support and scolding’s over the years.
