Guatemala has thriving rainforests that have escaped deforestation. These are rare environments and are must-sees on your trip to Guatemala. They have some of the rarest species of animals in the world, and contain the ruins of the once-great Maya civilization.
where are the best rainforests?
what to do?
Experience the rainforest and make a new four-legged friend on a horseback riding tour. Use your own two legs to hike across hanging bridges in a rainforest canopy, or go zip-lining in the Ixpanpajul Nature Park. There are many rare bird species in Guatemala, and the rainforest is one of the best places to go on a bird watching tour.
where to stay
There are a few remote jungle lodges in Guatemala where you can stay within the heart of the forest. This provides guests with intimate access to the sights and sounds of the forest. In other destinations, you can stay at a hotel located only a short drive from the entrance to the rainforest. These hotels are typically more comfortable than rural ecolodges.
