  • The perfect place near Tegucigalpa to enjoy a wild and relaxing getaway of the city, you can take a hike and walk around this incredible forest, a paradise full of vibrant and beautiful nature with great spots to camp and get the full experience of the jungle. Always expect a cloudy and chill climate be ready. Its easy to get lost in it too, take all the preparations needed.
  • Excellent place to visit when your visiting Tegucigalpa and wish to spent some time with mother nature, there are 8 paths to visit each of them with a different grades of complexity, at the park they have a restaurant, some huts to spend the night off if you wish so (cellular coverage is good there, in the midst of the paths you won't have it), is about 15 km from Tegucigalpa Urban site. If you pay attention you will meet some native fauna there and if you don't want to venture yourself as I did with my nephew, well you can hire a guide to show you the place, it's a must do experience!
  • Incredible views and an amazing hiking experience. If you are inHonduras you cannot miss this trail. You will love the scenic views.
  • The waterfall in forest is beautiful the brisk walk in the mountains are was awesome couldn't ask for a better day
  • The first declared national park in Honduras, great place to go hiking or birdwatching.
