Reptiles and Amphibians

Estación Biológica Las Guacamayas

The biodiversity of Parque Nacional Laguna del Tigre (RAMSAR Site) in the Maya Biosphere Reserve is extremely rich and varied due to its geographical position between the San Pedro, Yalá, Sacluc, San Juan, Chocop rivers and freshwater wetlands are home for large numbers of reptiles and amphibians.

The qualities of these habitats makes Estación Biológica Las Guacamayas a wildlife sanctuary, which is why the area has been of interest to scientists who develop various research topics and low impact nature tourism.
