  • It is a very beautiful place surrounded by forest and with a beautiful view of the city of Quetzaltenango. There are a few slides (slides) very funny for adults, and children's games also. The road is slightly damaged and I don't know so safe it may be climbing, walking, however, if they told us that many people are going to run to the area and we saw some policiias coming. Definitely worth a visit it.
