Lanquín national park was one of the first protected areas declared in Guatemala, 2 hours east from Cobán is an enormous and beautiful complex with chambers and rooms, limestone formations of extraordinary beauty. Beneath the entrance of the caves a river flow from inside the earth with crystal cool waters that open its path through the jungle. The Lanquín caves are also a sacred site used by many of the Mayas from all over Guatemala, who believe the cave is the “heart of heaven”.
