Sumario: This floristic study was carried out at the Chicacnab private preserve, located in San Juan Chamelco, Alta Verapaz. The methodology was based on referential sampling in order to choose the locations and the trees according to the density and elevation of the forest. Johansson’s methodology, in which the phorofite is divided up into 5 strata, was used for sampling. Samples were collected from 421 trees and 7 areas for terrestrial and lithophytic plants with a total of 6 743 species. We found 46 species and 22 genera of the family Orchidaceae, of which 4 Guatemalan endemics, 10 new records for Alta Verapaz and one new record for Guatemala. The most frequent habit was the epiphytic.
