The Verapaces Activities

The Verapaces are a fantastic destination if you like to be outdoors, exploring the many natural parks that cover the emerald hills of the Sierra las Minas and other low mountain ranges. To sight the beautiful quetzal, Guatemala's flagship bird, hike in any one of the dozen reserves along the Corredor Biologico del Bosque Nuboso, in the cloudforest of Baja Verapaz. As you continue north towards Cobán, more adventures await you in the form of ziplining over coffee plantations, and caves and underground rivers in Lanquín or Candelaria to explore. Spectacular turquoise waterfalls, quiet rivers with swimming holes, are also yours to discover, unless you prefer an easy jungle hike to Laguna Lachuá. The indigenous culture is also very strong in the Verapaces, and a stroll through the market of any small town, like Purulhá or San Jeronimo, will bring you in direct contact with the ancient languages, colorful crafts and traditional dresses which make Guatemala so unique in Central America.
