Tourism in the Pico Bonito National Park
It is without a doubt the most diverse park in Honduras, covering an area of land that ranges from sea level to 7,300 feet above sea level with the greatest variation in height in Honduras.
It has been named Pico Bonito for its layout and has become a sign of La Ceiba in the important role it has played in eco-tourism as a destination in recent years.
How to get to Pico Bonito?
You can get there by the road that leads to Trujillo and Colón, cross the Saupín bridge. There you will see a detour that leads to the site known as “La Cuenca” (of the Cangrejal River) and the community of Yuruca.
Access to the park is limited for a small number of visitors, and it is possible to visit some lower parts of the park. The park has two areas to receive visitors by the Zacate River and the Cangrejal River.
Drive through that detour, in good condition despite dirt, for about 8 km and then you will see the visitor center, where you can leave your car. The park is managed by the Pico Bonito National Park Foundation (FUPNAPIB).
