The Biotope protects an important remnant of cloud forest, which is habitat for numerous species of flora and fauna, including Guatemala´s national bird, the Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno). During your visit you can choose between 2 interpretive trails: “Los Helechos” –the Ferns- (2 km – 1.25 miles) and “Los Musgos” –the Mosses- (4 km – 2.5 miles).
It is recommended to look for Quetzals very early in the morning or late in the afternoon. On the trails, you may enjoy several crystal-water creeks that form waterfalls of various sizes and small lagoons.

Food and lodging services are available around the Biotope. Most of them are provided by Private Nature Reserves that are part of the Cloud Forest Corridor Association.
