  • It'S an amazing place. The ascent to the viewpoint is durilla and it is advisable to go up each one with its water because there is no shop inside. You Find local people selling water, coconuts and fruit but at very high prices taking advantage of Aquin is forgotten... The best Thing is to go to the last or first hour because if you find less people, because it is a very tourist place by foreigners and locals. If you carry things of value it is advisable to wear a padlock, because they have cajoncitos to store things while you give a swim, but the rent of the padlock are 25Qtz. Making The walk on the banks of the river is highly recommended!

  • I}s one of the most wonderfull places of Alta Verapaz, you have to visit it, clear blue watters. The best if you arrive early  more »
  • Great exotic paradise. The trek towards the sightseeing on top of the mountain is superb. The pristine waters are breathtaking... It's just an experience to live. There are toilets service in the main gate and and areas where to change clothes at the natural pools. There are lockers where to store your stuff, but bring your lock.
  • Such a beautiful natural wonder. Loved exploring and even was lucky enough to see some toucans at the top of the hike. Highly recommended.
