Are Guatemala's parks and reserves well developed?

Guatemala's national parks and nature reserves are fairly well developed. More popular parks, like Tikal, tend to have better facilities than lesser-known parks.

All parks will have a basic ranger station where you can talk to a park ranger, check out maps, and learn about the park. All parks also have restrooms.

Most parks have trails with signs and picnic tables. Do note, however, that remote parks may have poorly signed trails, so be careful when you're exploring these places. For this reason we recommend using a guide when visiting a park or reserve.
