Site description
Cerro Miramundo is an isolated cloud forest site in southern Guatemela, ranging in elevation from 1600 to 2700 m.

Key biodiversity
Cerro Miramundo is important for biome-restricted species of the Madrean Highlands (18 species recorded). The site supports a small population of the globally threatened Pink-headed Warbler (Ergaticus versicolor) (Valdez et al. 1999). The site is expected to be important for a large number of species restricted to the North Central American Highlands; because of data deficiency the site does currently not apply under the criterion of importance for range-restricted species. Some species records from a rapid assessment (Valdez et al. 1999) are the only recent data available for this IBA.
