Guatemala - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Coban and Las Verapaces

Situated in the heart of Guatemala where the rugged highlands begin to drop into the steamy Peten, Coban is an historic town founded by the Spanish in 1538, the “Ciudad Imperial” as it is still known today. Surrounded by lush, rolling hills cloaked in coffee and cardamom plantations owing to the arrival of German immigrants in the early 1900’s, Coban is the ideal base for exploring the breathtaking limestone mountains, rivers and caves of the Alta and Baja Verapaces. Here, swirling mist hides craggy peaks, dense cloud-forest and enigmatic caverns, home to the iconic resplendent Quetzal and a dizzying array of flora and fauna. Close to Lanquin, the magnificent Semuc Champey National Park is unmissable, a true natural wonder of cascading turquoise pools sitting atop a limestone bridge under which flows the Cahabón River.
