I had the opportunity to find out on my recent visit to Guatemala. When humans give up control in a place, Mother Nature has a wonderful way of reclaiming it.
Walking through this park is to be awe inspired by the palpable sense of history in the Temples, markets, and homes growing in stone through this bird and wildlife filled forest sanctuary. To think that you are walking in the footsteps of those who lived there 1000 to 2000 years ago is truly a wonder!
Since I’m a birder, but also fascinated by the history and ecology of this place, I’ll interweave elements of all for you to experience this beautiful place with me.
