• Parque Nacional Las Victorias

    Parque Nacional Las Victorias

     

    Las Victorias National Park is located in Alta VerapazGuatemala, on the north-western outskirts of the city of Cobán. Formerly a finca acquired in the mid-19th century by the French coffee grower Jules Rossignon, Las Victorias was designated a national park in 1980. The park covers an area of 82 ha, and is managed by the National Forestry Institute. It is a beautiful, peaceful park and mostly you will find yourself completely alone, as the masses haven’t discovered yet this tranquil and green little paradise. As the park is full of birds, it is a great spot for birdwatching.

  • Laguna y cuevas de Sepalau

    Formed on limestone, these lagoons constitute a geological curiosity because their characteristics of color and depth vary throughout the year. The first lagoon serves as a source of water for nearby communities and therefore it is forbidden to swim in it; however, the more adventurous can enjoy a ride in canoe or raft in its beautiful waters. Alongside you will find the second lagoon, in which you can swim and enjoy a refreshing experience in the middle of the daily heat. This Karstic landscape is a special landscape that develops in places where limestone rock abounds. It is associated with caves, turquoise waters and intermittent rivers.
