A worth seeing place. Nice walk in the nature. You can ear the birds singing and nice trail to walk. I didn’t have the opportunity to watch the Quetzal but still worth my trip

We were very lucky and saw 3 quetzals in daylight at the Biotopo grounds. In addition we earlier saw a larger pair around the restaurant across the road from the Biotopo. Magic! A family from outside Antigua told us they had visited 4 times and...More

I went in search of the elusive national bird of Guatemala, but in the end I was just happy to learn about the reserve and the work they do to preserve habitat for the birds. I did see a male from a distance.

Great trail walk around the park and couple of water fountains. There two trails short one and long one. I took short one and it took me 2 hours . And I was able to see to quetzal on trail walk.

You have to be lucky and have a good eye.Nice walk through the biotope to try to see the famous bird, but very complicated to find it. Otherwise, a very beautiful place where you are in contact with nature.

This place is a great insight of the environment where the beautiful Quetzal bird lives. The staff is very friendly as well and the facilities in good condition.

You best take public bus to this place. Just take bus direction Tactic or Guatemala for 4 Q only - There is one at least every half hour. Solid shoes and a rain coat are indispensable as this biotopo is in a mountainous rainforest

We were very excited about the visit to the Biotopo and hoped to spot a Quetzal. But spotting Quetzals are as rare as winning a lottery! This is something that we learnt after going there. We chose to walk the shorter loop of 2 miles....More
