El Refugio del Quetzal, Guatemala Drive and Hike

Jacque Street

Overview

Features: Birding — River/Creek — Waterfall

Description

This is the driving trail from San Pablo, GT to El Refugio del Quetzal, where the hiker can observe the famous quetzal bird. Once arriving in the parking lot, you'll be greeted by a guide. The price for a guide is approx $5 USD pp and less for GT citizens. You'll probably need a guide to spot the birds, as they blend in with the trees quite well. It is a beautiful site to see the quetzal fly from tree top to tree top. The earlier you arrive, the more chance of spotting multiple birds. The hike itself can be steep at times, but not too bad. There is a beautiful waterfall, stream. The hike is circular and can be extended. We took a fairly short version of the hike, probably took around 1 hour. The drive is around 40-60 minutes each way.
