Hike through Lagunas de Montebello, famous for its 59 colorful lakes. The national park, founded in 1959, is a UNESCO biosphere reserve filled with lakes, pine forests, and small villages. While exploring the park, you can discover some of the small lakes in the area, where differing mineral content creates colors ranging from turquoise, emerald, and clear blue, to brown and purplish. Visit Chinkultic, the ruins of an ancient Mayan city within the park, and climb the acropolis for a view of some of the park's vibrant lakes. Plan your visit to Lagunas de Montebello and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Comitan trip builder.

  • It is a beautiful park for those who like to admire nature. We trails towards incredible vantage points overlooking different lakes, watching on the way various arthropods, birds and reptiles as well as the incredible mixture of vegetation that evidences its importance as a meso-American corridor. The blue of the Lakes is very beautiful, by its contrast with the green of the jungle. It is worth doing so with time, staying in some of the cabins of the community in Tizcao, where you can eat very well and walk toward the side of Guatemala, and take photos at the border. You pay an entrance to the Park and a ticket to the Community (keep it, ask at each entrance).
