Peten, locally known as El Peten, is a haven for nature as well as culture lovers. This northern corner of the country is spread over a thickly forested area known for its rich biodiversity and wildlife. The massive Reserva De Biosfera Maya or Maya Biosphere Reserve covers much of Peten and even spills over to neighboring Mexico and Belize. Exploring the region’s tropical jungles, spotting the local wildlife, or simply enjoying a slow lazy day, there’s much to do at Peten!
