The Trifinio biosphere reserve is located on the Cerro Montecristo in the department of Chiquimula, Guatemala. [cite web | url=http://www.conap.gob.gt:7778/conap/areas-protegidas/sigap/listado-areas-protegidas/listado-areas-protegidas | publisher= | title=Listado áreas protegidas | author=CONAP | access=2008 | format= |language=Spanish] It was created in 1987 to protect the Montecristo's cloud forest and its rare flora and fauna. The dense cloud forest of oak and laurel trees, that grow up to 30 meters, houses rare wildlife species like the two-fingered anteater, Striped Owls, toucans, agoutis. pumas and spider monkeys.

The Montecristo massif is an area where the borders of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador meet, and its protection was a joint initiative of these three countries, which resulted in the creation of the Parque Nacional Montecristo - El Trifinio in Honduras, the Parque Nacional Montecristo El Trifinio in El Salvador, as well as the Guatemalan Trifinio biosphere reserve.

The protection of the Montecristo massif was part of a broader plan, known as the Trifinio plan, to develop this border region.
