Biotopo Cerro Cahui - Trekking El Remate - Guatemala

Two kilometers west of El Remate and along the shore of Lake Peten Itza, Biotopo Cerro Cahui is a rainforest reserve spanning over six hundred hectares. It is one of the most accessible wildlife reserves in Petén. The elevation ranges between 100 and 360 meters, offering scenic hiking. The reserve is home to nearly two hundred species of birds, including toucans, trogons, woodpeckers and parrots. Depending on the season, you might spot numerous spider monkeys, herons, hawks, squat rodents and ocellated turkeys (big birds resembling peacocks). There are two particular trails that are great for hiking. One is the trail of Los Ujuxtes which is five kilometers long and offers spectacular views of the lake. The other trail is Tzu’unte which leads to the Mirador Moreltii, nicknamed the “Crocodile Hill” because the cliffs look like a half-submerged crocodile. Maps and information are available at the entrance kiosk. Open every day 6 a.m. – 6 p.m., the entrance fee costs $2.50 and includes the right to camp or sling your hammock under small thatch shelters. There are toilets, showers and a dock where you can swim.
