Los Tarrales is a place for people who like nature. We invite you to explore the diverse tropical wildlife in forests and plantations in the 1300 hectare large reserve on Guatemala's Atitlán Volcano, to hike along the many trails, and to see how coffee is grown and processed. Knowledgeable guides, well-working local logistics, an extensive trail network, and comfortable lodging give visitors an unforgettable experience. Los Tarrales is easily accessible via the Panamerican highway (CA1) or the coastal highway (CA2). Los Tarrales ranges in altitude from 700 to 3500 m (2300 - 11500 ft) and is home to diverse wildlife, incuding more than 340 bird species, more than 270 butterfly species, and top predators such as Margay and Puma. Los Tarrales is part of the Atitlán Important Bird Area, and harbors 21 regional endemic bird species, including Horned Guan, Highland Guan, Azure-rumped Tanager, and Blue-tailed Hummingbird.

I spent four nights at Los Tarrales from February 2-5, 2020. I wish I could have spent another four nights. I am an avid bird/nature lover and have experience travelling in Latin America. I arrived at LT after two weeks of noisy tiring volunteer work at another part of Guatemala. I am a "budget" traveler and while LT is not as low cost as much of Guatemala I found the lodging and meals offered were very nice and worth every quetzale. The bed in the "tree house" bunk was comfortable with clean linen and towels. I appreciate the sustainable practices I observed at LT. I was able to rest in comfort and independently bird the grounds and the trails. The cold water pool was especially amazing and refreshing. Volcan de Fuego could be heard rumbling in the distance. I hired Alfredo "Freddie" Tol Gonzales as a bird guide for an effort at owling and an early morning trip up the slope of Volcan de Atitlan. Freddie was great. He has local knowledge, a kind and accommodating personality, sufficient english skills and an professional understanding of how to find and observe specialty birds with minimal disturbance of the birds. Alfredo is young and has a bright future as a bird guide. Do not hesitate to hire him. not only did Freddie do a great job with birds he also helped me arrange transportation when leaving. Thank you Freddie! Finally, the kitchen staff deserve a special recognition and appreciation. The food was tasty, abundant and made with care - especially the chocolate fria! Thank you very much.

I love everything about this place. Clean, quiet, simple, delicious home-made, fresh food, lovely staff & the birding guides are outstanding! It's a relaxing place to be but really exciting at the same time because of the amazing number of spectacular birds! I would go back again & again.

We went to Los Tarrales for birding. There are some nice feeders around the main building, and also some flowering plants that attract hummingbirds. I think the setup of the feeders are not the best, the birds are a bit skittish, and quickly flew away when we got closer than 30 feet / 9 meters and they were too dark. The bird variety was quite good, we saw tanagers, euphenias, woodpeckers, mot-mots (they were the only birds that were not really skittish, I could get really close to them), orioles and even aracaries! Also saw 4 kinds of hummingbirds near the lodge (cinnamon, blue tail, ruby throated, and white-bellied). There were also a lot of aguties and white tailed deers! Went on night hikes as well, the first one was uneventful (the lagoon trail is not the best), but the second night (Rinconada trail) was full of tarantulas, frogs, and even saw a snake and a kinkaju! We tried to see the quetzal, but no luck unfortunately...and that hike was super boring, barely saw any birds. It was not worth it. The accommodation was lovely - the style, the settings, everything was really nice. Food was also great!

The first time I went alone and I liked it a lot, so I decided to go with friends again and stay longer. Our main motivation was to see birds, I have to say that it was worth returning because with the help of our guide Alfredo Tol we were able to achieve the goal that was to see the Horned Guan and Azure-rumped Tanager among others. This place is not only good for birds, we also saw white-tailed deer, frogs and snakes in our nocturnal walks, there is a network of trails in very good condition and easy to walk. As it is a farm and biological reserve offers a diversity of habitats that offers a large number of bird species. The rooms are comfortable and the food good. Andy the owner received us very kindly. All the staff were very attentive and willing to help us in everything.

I spent three nights at Los Tarrales with some friends, our main goal was birding and try to watch the endangered and rare "Horned Guan", so I must say that the place is great for birding, it has different ecosystems and a lot of birds, all of our targets were checked, also we had a great time at Los Tarrales, comfortable rooms and beds, peaceful nights, and the best thing was Andy's attention to my group of friends and me, Andy is a great host, also the dinner and all the services you receive are great, so if you are looking for a peaceful place where you can enjoy nature, Los Tarrales is your ideal place, we are very grateful with Andy for all of his attentions, we felt that we were like in our homes, so thanks a lot, we hope to come back to this wonderful place.
