Pulhapanzak Waterfall, San Buenaventura

The giant, cascading Pulhapanzak Waterfall represents the largest falls in Honduras. Surrounded by a lush green rainforest the water pours down the rock face 43 m (140 ft) high. The falls are a destination because of a cave behind it that visitors can climb into and explore; visitors may also swim at the base of the falls. Nearby trails allow you to visit the river below the falls--be prepared to climb over boulders while being sprayed by the water from above. Others may opt to take a canopy ride that glides you over the crest of the waterfall.

  • We are having a guide behind the waterfall gone!! This was a such a great experience! It is pretty scary and dangerous! But you get a lot of adrenaline and the Guide please pay attention! This was really a top experience!!!! And we were here just only. NO TOURISTS!

  • A beautiful waterfall that provides a refreshing mist on a hot Honduran day. It's a trek down to the bottom, but worth it. The 11-stage zip line offered amazing views!  more »
  • Great place to visit. We did the 'behind the waterfall' tour which was fantastic (although worth noting that it is 'through' rather than 'behind' the waterfall!)  more »
