An ecological theme park

View Guatemalan Medical Trip/Language Immersion on dredayhurray's travel map.

Last week, Xejuyup opened. It is an ecological theme park 45 minutes by public bus outside of Xela to the NorthEast. It is part of a coalition that built 5 parks throughout Guatemala for the government workers. Government workers are able to access the parks for a small monthly fee and the goal was to provide beauty and relaxation for the workers. Mynor told me that the land used to be a coffee farm, and the coalition made sure to build around all the old growth trees. The park included a horse stable complete with Spanish and Guatemalan horses and a covered arena for daily Spanish riding shows, a roller coaster, an organic garden, a fishing area, and restaurants. We rode the roller coaster, watched a horse show, and went to the organic garden where a man talked to us about all the different plants and gave us fruit. It was so beautiful! 10/10 recommend if you are going to Xela.
