Wildlife in Guatemala - Rainforests and Mangroves
Spectacular scenery, with smoking volcanos, deep blue lakes, crystal clear waterfalls and a mysterious aninal world - this is how Guatemala, the third largest country in Central America, presents itself to the visitor. While the mountainous southern part of the country is dotted with cloud forest, on the northern El Peten plain, tropical rain forest flourishes.

It was here that, between the third and the ninth centuries, the Mayas built the most magnificent temple city in the whole of pre-Columbian America: Tikal.

In the National Park which was set up here in 1955, as well as viewing the temple ruins, it is possible to observe at close quarters birds which are now becoming rare, such as parrots, toucans, trogons, woodpeckers and curassows. And the visitor may also come across howler and spider monkeys, wild turkeys and even the shy ocelot.

In the midst of the tropical rain forest, the ruins of the Mayan settlement of Tikal, now part of a National Park measuring just under 600 square kilometres, offer the visitor an ideal combination of culture and nature. Close by the ruins, birds of prey like the plumbeous kite and the bat falcon are nesting. As dusk falls, nocturnal animals emerge from their hiding places: the opossum, the Mexican burrowing toad, the vampire bat and the Guatemalan clawed gecko, which has installed itself as a lodger in a colony of leaf-cutting ants.

In the southeast, the rain forest borders on the coast of the Caribbean Sea, where it gives way to mangrove forest. Mangrove trees can tolerate a high concentration of salt, and anchor themselves in the mud with their prop roots. The coastal zone is rich in fish, crustaceans and molluscs, plentiful supplies of food for humans and animals.
