Ranchitos del Quetzal
At the heart of the Guatemalan cloud forest, this eco-hostel is a huge favorite. It's the best spot to observe this mythical and beautiful bird that is the Quetzal, but also a place with a real ethical and responsible approach. The owners, warm and welcoming, are passionate and share it: they are everyday on the lookout and you will prevent as soon as a Quetzal is the tip of his tail in the corner!
They develop as several eco-responsible projects including reproduction at low cost of different species of orchids local and protected to encourage locals to grow species instead of poaching them.
The restaurant of the hostel offers good local food, with a few products organic and vegetarian options. An authentic place, without frills and greenwashing, perfect for a naturalistic stop!
