Grutas de Lanquin Apr 26, 2008
Located 1 km from the village of Lanquin, the road that communicates with the city of Coban passes above the entrance to the Caves of Lanquin, one of the first declared protected areas in Guatemala. It is a huge complex and beautiful, with halls, domes and capricious limestone formations with extraordinary beauty, is not known where the cave ends. Some formations have names of animals and other forms that resemble.

The Caves is not only a tourist destination, but a site sacred to Q'eq'chies; it is believe is the "heart of heaven" and that in the bowels of these caves "lies the secret of the centuries." The Caves of Lanquin also highlighted as a natural habitat for thousands of bats, which depart every evening, a natural spectacle appreciated by many tourists.

There is a checkpoint for recovery, picnic area or rest, toilets and parking area. It is managed by the Municipality. The entrance fee is Q20 (national), Q30 (foreigners), Q10 (children), Q10 (parking). The saved resources are willing to accompany visitors on their tour of the cave. Hours site: 8am until 6pm, every day of the year.
