Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Before checking into our hotel we visited the nature park at the strong recommendation of our friend from Guatemala. He had offered other good advice that shaped our adventure, but not this time. The trails were slippery and of the six cable bridges only one offered a worthwhile view. Since we had a short amount of time we took a truck to the top of the trail, but there were no signs about which side to go down (one has bridges, the other is just jungle). The most interesting aspect was the steady calls of the howler (saraguate) monkeys, but we never saw them. There are other more interesting things to do in Flores, you might want to skip this one.

We visited this park with 19 family members from 3 to 75 years of age and everyone found something to enjoy - hammocks to rest in, a good hike up the hills and across multiple suspension bridges with great views of the jungle, a zipline and the interesting swing/merry go round.

It's an age thing probably, but because 2 of us did the 6 zipwire 'tour' we ended up near the top bridge and walked down from there crossing a number of rope bridges to the bottom. I am not sure I could have reached the top level bridge if we'd had to climb up all the way. Of course, it meant we saw the most spectacular view first, as the top bridge is highest, but for me that didn't matter. Bring binoculars, a good camera/zoo lens and plenty of water. Boys saw a bright green snake at the end to round of a great morning.

There is a fantastic canopy walk, six suspension bridges. Zip line through the canopy. Shuttle available from Flores. Staff all amazingly friendly and helpful. A bit pricey, but well worth it!!

This park has beautiful and breathtaking sites. The tour we arranged picked us up at our hotel. When we arrived we were told the suspension bridges hike would take about 2-2 1/2 hours. We leisurely walked it and it took us just that (this part you do without a guide). We were the only ones on the trails so we were in no rush. After our hike, we loaded on the back of a pick up truck a long with another group, and we were driven to the Canapy. We like zip lining so we were pretty pumped. The last part of our tour consisted of a ride around a part of the park. That part was useless. The driver had nothing to share. Overall, it’s something you would have to enjoy doing on your own. I didn’t find it worth the money.

I have been to Tikal so I wanted something a bit off the beaten path so to speak.
We stayed in Flores and purchased a bus ticket for aprox $20 Cdn. The bus never showed and the tour office didn't care! Never again-the only rip off in all of Guatamala! Instead, we flagged down a random guy and explained our issue. In true, beautiful Guatamal style, he went away and returned with a buddy. They unceremoniously popped us each on the back of a motor bike and off we went. $10 Cdn and a wonderful experience. The park is not far from Flores and privately owned. I am a zip line junky so ofcourse that was the goal. As of April 2019, we only paid 250 qu-seemed really cheap(don't have my visa bill yet!) The trip up in the truck was a rough road-monkeys and I believe mongoose. We were the only 2 guests and my friend is 80-so the guys were just fantastic. No hurry-lots of safety-and one guide even insisted on taking videos on my phone.There were 5 lines-stops on the cables-and beautiful paths through the forest! The construction was solid and I felt totally comfortable. Some bounce in the longest cable but that is how they all are, in my experience. At the end, we ended at the suspension bridge trek so continued on the 3 km hike and 6 bridges. April is the end of the dry season so not alot of animals, but the flora never gets old for me. We saw 2 others only. Delightful. Note-bring water! I had lots but my friend was fading. None on the trail-maybe in the busy season the mid highpoint hut would be selling some. I also considered the bridges to be in good shape-some nails coming out-but never a safety haszard in my mind. We returned to the main house area, had a lovely, but simple lunch for $8 Cdn. We then reclined in the new hammocks, had a drink and enjoyed the abundant woodpeckers. My friend was picked up by the same "mr motorcycle" guy but I stayed a night at the park. Absolutely quaint, 5 star bungalows with AC. I was joined by a couple from New York who had driven down and camped in the camping area. We were the only 3 peopole in the park all night. The camping area wa in their estimation, one of the best all the way down from New York! Simple, clean, and quiet-but for the donkeys! It is called a "natural Park" so lots of farm animals openly wandering-my idea of a good time! The only negative-the horse riding was pathetic. I'ld totally pass on that. Again, maybe in the busy season they bring in fresher horses-it was so bad I asked to quit 1/2 way through and bring the poor horse back. I didn't care if I paid for the whole hour. The horse wasn't enjoying himself, so I wasn't either! You could do this park in 3 hours and possibly head to Tikal-all in one day. I simply enjoyed the tranquility and unhurried nature! I had no expectations-which is always the best way to do anything-and I was very surprised and pleased. Take your time!

We hiked the SkyWay in the afternoon and were the only ones there at that time, though mornings are probably better for seeing birds and temperature-wise.
We were told the estimated time to complete the route would be 2 - 2.5 hours and it took us about that, going at a leisurely pace and taking breaks. There are bathrooms and a rest area (complete with hammocks!) at the mirador, where we got the closest view of howler monkeys we’ve ever had. We were at the end of our trip and spent the previous two days hiking up some pyramids at Tikal, so we were tired! Still, this was a nice, quiet activity, considering we had the SkyWay to ourselves.
We used the park’s shuttle from our hotel (Q150 round trip for two people) in Flores and the driver was ready just as we finished our hike. Admission was Q125 per adult and included a cold bottle of water.

I am not young so I found the walk strenuous. We heard howler monkeys and some birds but did not see any people on the walk.
The trip was a complete immersion in nature.

We paid a taxi fare on top of the cost and the driver wanted to only stay one hour. The canopy walk should talk two hours so we compromised on an hour and a half and were reasured it was no problem.
The horses were friendly on the final and, thankfully, flat section back. We found our taxi driver asleep in a hammock so all was well.

The first suspension bridge is the longest. I decided to be the last one to go in my group- bad call. It was swinging from the momentum of everyone else that had just crossed it. The trails and steps are in good shape here. It was somewhat dark as the canopy really encompasses this area. I had a good time.

I know that some reviewers have commented on the cost, but the zipwire is worth every penny. For $25 each, we were collected from Flores and taken to the park, which is beautiful, and taken on a 4x4 truck deep into the jungle, where the howler monkeys were in full voice! Our 2 guides made sure we had a great, and safe, experience riding between the 6 stations high in the canopy. Straight rides, upside-down Spider-Man, or flying Superman - take your choice. You can add the canopy skywalk or horse riding if you wish, but we just went for the zipwire and had a fabulous time.
