    I love hiking in Cerro Tzankuji; I feel it is a very spiritual place. I would hike here every day if I could. The paths are nice and a trail leads to a diving platform also. Have fun!  more »

    Our group stopped here for about 45 minutes. Two of us climbed the steep muddy trail to the top of the hill for views of the lake and volcanoes. Some trees blocked part of the view. Most of the rest o...  more »

    The reserve is mostly interesting to get an idea of the location overview. But the beauty of San Marcos is the village. As far as being "tainted or invaded" by a certain hippy or presence of trend, the village is so simple and primal, that invites to meditation. Drugs aside, the cohabitation seems harmonious and encircle the many murals in the streets, the signs with the meditation centers and events planned. To breathe this atmosphere it is pushed up in San Pedro, but here in San Marcos the environment is smaller and therefore more genuine

    It's not only about nature and great views, it's as well about having the guts to jump from an eight meter platform and landing in the right way! Lots of fun with your friends cheering you up to jump or making fun of you if you don't dare to. So you better come prepared or face the consequences!

    What a great place to hang out and take in the sun, water and scenery. The diving platform is about 6-7 metres high and takes some nerve to leap from, but well worth it. Bring a few beers and some food and make an afternoon of it. Just remember to take out all your trash and keep the water clean. There are trash cans but why create more work for other people. Pack in, pack out. Only Q15 per person (foreigner price).

    There are some great views around here! Would totally recommend coming here! You're supposed to pay to get in but often there is no one manning the booth. Sometimes the views can be obscured by the trees but really that's such a small point and is still definitely worth the adventure.

    Totally the most beautiful, most chill places relax. There is place(platform) where you can jump to water from like 10m, then there is a lot of stones in sun or in shadow where you can read and relax. Workers really try to make the park beautiful everyday more and more! !!! Entrancy for Guatemala people 10Q and everybody else 15Q!!!

    Great place to chill out on the rocks and jump off a 7m cliff. Very quiet and a lot of fun.
