The protected area has among its objectives the conservation of high natural environments, particularly the oak forests, the cloud forests and the paramo. It also aims to maintain the hydrological function of these forests, as well as the protection of the habitats of endemic species and the reproduction of the quetzal. Quetzals are abundant in this national park that bears the name of this Mesoamerican bird that, according to the World Conservation Union, is currently in danger of extinction.
