The favorite sectors for the practice of ecotourism, adventure and the real home of the Kakaw or Cacao and the Quetzal (Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan), our national bird and patriotic symbol. Sectors dominated by mountain cloud forests and navigable rivers for rafting, crystal clear waterfalls and several, impressive and endless cave systems that for our ancient Mayans represented the entrance to the Underworld or Xibalba, highlighting the Caves of Lanquin and The Candelaria Caves.
Biotope & Ranchitos del Quetzal
The specific places of the cloud forest for the observation (in its natural habitat) of one of the most beautiful birds in the world; the majestic quetzal or feathered serpent. Called thus by our grandparents since the feathers of the quetzal when flying perish serpents that fly through the skies. Really having the opportunity to see a quetzal in its habitat is a unique experience in life that you will never forget.

Caves of Lanquín & Candelaria
Both places cataloged as the entrances to the Xibalba or the Maya underworld. Large and impressive caves navigable by rivers, full of nature, peace, silence and a great mysticism.
Or the mirror of heaven, It is a lagoon with almost perfect circular shape surrounded by dense jungle. It is a very quiet place where you can breathe peace and pure air with transparent and crystalline waters where the moon and the stars are reflected in the night.
