Cerro San Gil - Hiking Around Puerto Barrios - Guatemala

One popular excursion from Puerto Santo Tomás de Castilla is to a rainforest park that centers around Cerro San Gil mountain. The preserved area is home to more than 350 species of birds, as well as jaguars and other mammals. In the park is also Río Las Escobas, where you can swim in the cool waters of the watershed that supplies Puerto Barrios and hike several nature trails that take you past waterfalls and natural pools. To organize a visit, contact FUNDAECO (www.fundaeco.org.gt, Tel: 7948-4404), the private conservation group who looks after the park.
