Similar to but less touristy than the Reserva Natural de Monterrico (Monterrico Nature Reserve), this project is run by the Asociación de Rescate y Conservación de Vida Silvestre (ARCAS; www.arcasguatemala.com). ARCAS is actively involved in environmental protection and education, and runs several excellent volunteer programs. This protected zone is comprised of ecosystems similar to those found at the reserve. All of the hotels and tour agencies can arrange for a guided tour of Parque Hawaii. Tours usually last around 4 to 5 hours, and run between Q40 and Q90 ($5.35-$12/£2.65-£6) per person, depending upon the size of your group. On the trip, you'll see a wide range of bird fauna, as well as the chance to see caiman and iguanas in the wild. For more information, ask your hotel.
