Fodor's Review

Ixpanpajul Parque Natural is a private nature reserve sitting on a large stand of primary rain forest. Hiking the suspended bridges of the skyway will give you a bird's-eye view of the indigenous flora and fauna that make the rain forest the most biodiverse ecosystem on the planet. The park also offers myriad adventure opportunities, from nighttime ATV tours to horseback rides to mountain-bike excursions. A three-hour Tarzán Canopy Tour (zip line) costs Q235 or US$30.

There is camping, and rental cabañas are available. A restaurant has specials that average around Q70.
