The Guatemala National Parks Council (CONAP) launched an official website with information about the National Parks, Nature Reserves and Protected Areas.   It’s information is very important and useful for tour companies that offer Guatemala, and even more to those of us committed to Sustainable Tourism operations because most of Guatemala’s tourist attractions are located within national parks, nature reserves or protected areas.

To start with, the website features about 50 parks and destinations, providing important information about them, how to reach them, services available in the area, visiting hours, fees, etc.   Information about other parks and reserves will be added soon.

The website in English is www.tourism-sigap.com
