Welcome to Parque Nacional Laguna Lachuá
This national park is renowned for the perfectly round, pristine turquoise lake (220m deep) for which it was named. Until recently, this Guatemalan gem was rarely visited by travelers because it was an active, violent area during the civil war and the road was in disrepair. Now it fills up quickly on weekends and public holidays, and if you're thinking about coming at these times, it's a good idea to call and reserve a space. Overnight visitors can use the cooking facilities, so come prepared with food and drink (there is no food available to buy in the park). There is only one shower.
