Hotel Río Perlas offers you several self-guided hiking trails (without guides) where you can enjoy some natural thermal water pools, a beautiful river that crosses our 110 hectares, many picnic areas and a wide variety of wildlife. One of the hiking trails that runs through the Pearl River, leads to a small waterfall and a panoramic viewpoint, although visitors who wish to take full advantage of the views that arrive early are advised, before the clouds arrive from the late. In fact, at elevations ranging from 4,000 to 8,000 feet, clouds are quite common up here. Most of the Resort trails take 1 to 3 hours to walk. The Resort covers two life zones: lower montane tropical forest and premontane forest, which vary according to elevation. The forests of the Resort provide a perfect habitat for mammal species such as paca, tapir, kinkajou, white-nosed coati, raccoon, eastern cottontail, white-faced capuchin monkey, agouti, ocelot and The jaguarundi in danger of extinction. In the Resort live more than 400 species of birds: quetzales, emerald toucanetas, sparrows hawks, violets and hummingbirds, as well as 28 species of reptiles and amphibians. The insect population within the Resort is also quite large. Lucky visitors can even see thysania agripina, the largest known butterfly in the entire American continent. The rivers are full of life and the population of trees and plants is also very well represented, with oaks and trees of Panama, magnolias, bromeliads and various types of orchids that grow within the Resort.
