At the heart of the country, around 140 kilometres (87 miles) from the capital, this nature reserve is a magical park in the middle of the jungle. You'll find it hard to miss: an area hidden under a thick canopy of vegetation which seems impenetrable in places and lends a mysterious and isolated feel to the park. The Biotopo del Quetzal nature reserve is one of the green lungs of the country, with over one thousand hectares of land brimming with natural resources. Inside the park, there are multiple walking trails on which to explore Guatemala's rich variety of fauna and flora, starting with the popular orchid park, which is the first thing you'll see on any visit to the park. You can also book onto guided excursions to learn even more about the reserve. If we had to sum up this natural enclave in one word, 'magical' would be the most fitting. You'll love it!
