Candelaria-Campur includes humid broadleaf forests in lowlands and foothills on the Guatemalan Atlantic slope, ranging in elevation from 100 to 1900 m.
Few ornithological data are available for this IBA. Based on a rapid assessment (APROBA SANK 2006) and unpublished data (K. Eisermann & C. Avendaño, pers. comm.) the site is important for biome-restricted species of the Gulf Caribbean Slope. Because the site includes also cloud forest, it is expected to be important for species restricted to the Central American Highlands.
