This nature reserve is great. They have several walking trails, zip lines and a butterfly garden. We went with our one year old so we couldn't try the zip lines, but the walks were very nice.

I walked all around while my friends went zip lining. I enjoyed seeing the monkeys and the waterfalls. I wish that there were a few more trails to walk.

Took a tuk tuk from the town but you could easily walk. Spent about an hour hiking up the hill on the trail with the suspension bridges. Did not see any monkeys or coatis. Then another hour in the butterfly habitat which is incredible since...More

Almost didn't do it but so happy I did- the view was insanely beautiful! One of my favorite things I did in Guatemala.

As a short-term mission team from the US, we chose to spend our "rest day" on the Zip Lines at Reserva Natural Atitlan. It was a fantastic experience, even in the rain! The staff was friendly, helpful, and encouraging. I highly recommend Reserva Natural Atitlan!

Just outside Panajachel in Guatemala. We took a tuk tuk to get there, but walked back. It took about an hour. There is a butterfly "garden" there, and you can go zip lining, which we did. It's a lot of fun! If you hire a cab... More
