Fodor's Review

This very pleasant balneario, or "resort," is located in the town of San Pedro Carchá, 6 km (4 mi) east of Cobán. On a clear-running river, Las Islas ("the islands") tempts bathers with a variety of natural and man-made falls and pools, as well as a water slide. The grounds are spacious and well maintained, with picnic tables, changing rooms, and a restaurant that opens on weekends. On Sundays there's also a small handicrafts market with half a dozen vendors.
