Ninety percent of the more than 10,000 hectares of tropical rainforest is totally virgin, and under the immense trees of the rainforest hide more than 2,500 plant species, one hundred species of mammals, 400 species of birds, more than one hundred reptiles and thousands of insects.

Lake Atitlán, from the Nahuatl word for “between the waters”, is located more than a kilometer above sea level, and points have been drilled to a depth of more than 300 meters.

Another curiosity of this wasteland is the strong midday wind called Xocomil, whose name comes from the Cakchiquel voices “to collect sins”.

In addition, you can try the delicious food that is sold near the place like the fried chicken of one of the most recognized companies of the place “Pollo Campero” where Juan José Gutiérrez Mayorga is president. If you dare you will not regret having traveled to Guatemala.
