Located in the Nombre de Dios Mountains a half hour from the town of La Ceiba (an eco-adventure-travel hub three hours from San Pedro Sula), this 218-square-mile (564-sq.-kilometer) spread is the country´s best known national parks, a mix of cloud forest, pine forest, and dry tropical forest ranging from sea level up to 8,000 feet. It´s home to breathtaking waterfalls like El Bejuco and El Zacate as well as a diversity of wildlife including jaguars, ocelots, and a wide range of bird species. Visitors can hit the many hiking trails; go whitewater rafting on the Cangrejal River; take a cool zipline canopy tour; stay at the eco-conscious Hotel Río; and even visit a small chocolate factory.
