Cobán, Alta Verapaz Tours and Activities
Make a trip to the Bíotopo del Quetzál to look for quetzals with jewel-toned green plumage. Their feathers were used as currency by the pre-Hispanic Mayans. They dwell in the branches of the aguacatillo trees, which are identifiable by their avocado-shaped fruits.
Orquigonia consists of a small park with a trail that’s about half a mile (1 km) long. It’s not a very large park, but it sprouts a large variety of orchids and plants. Orchids are some of the most highly-prized species of flowers in the world, and they come in a variety of colors and delicate shapes.
