Our town Talquian is located at the foothills of the Tacaná volcano, a quiet community out of the conventional routes. There is a great variety of weathers in the area, that range from tropical heat characteristic of the coastal plain, to the cold of the high mountain, passing through one of the last mountain mesophile forests still alive in Mexico. The Mam culture lives among these ecosystems in different villages in the mountain accessible only by walking.

Your Host

I’m Jose Alfredo, descendant of the Mam ethnic group and native of the mountains. I am part of a guide and bird watchers group who are passionate about our region. From the age of 9, I started to climb the volcano; today, I’m an experimented mountain guide. I like nature very much and it’s my mission to take care of it and protect it. I love receiving travelers in Talquian and teaching them about my culture and the volcano.
