Lachua park

Look at this strange square in guatemala ! Lachua is a National Park with a total area of 14,500 hectares, Laguna Lachua has 400 hectares. The Peyan river disembogues into the lake, and the Lachua, Tzetoc and Del Altar rivers drain it. The abundance of mahogany trees make the park a remunerating goal for illicit loggers, who can earn up to ten times the going wages of a laborer by cutting down mahogany trees. So it is protected very intensive. The park has only a capacity of 84 day visitors and 21 overnight visitors, so it is not a good idea to visit during the Easter or Christmas holidays when it quickly becomes crowded.
