Located at the center of one of the country's primary coffee growing areas, the affluent city of Coban offerss a scattered few cultural attractions, a relaxed and welcoming vibe, and proximity to a wealth of natural highlights.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cuevas de B'omb'il Pek y Jul Iq' and Parque Nacional Grutas de Lanquin. Escape the urban bustle at Orquigonia and El Salto de Chilasco. Spend the 19th (Wed) exploring nature at Parque Nacional Las Victorias. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Biotopo del Quetzal, admire the natural beauty at Vivero Verapaz, and explore the striking landscape at Grutas del Rey Marcos.
