PICO BONITO CLOUD FOREST

Unquestionably one of the most diverse parks in Central America, Pico Bonito covers an extension of land that goes from sea level to as high as 7,500ft, and in effect boasts the largest change of altitude in Honduras. Named after the mountain that lies just south of La Ceiba, Pico Bonito has become a landmark for La Ceiba, and without doubt playing an important role in making of La Ceiba an important eco tourism destination in the years to come. Although access to the park is quite limited, it is possible to visit some of the lower parts of the park. About 19 km west of La Ceiba, on the highway to Tela and San Pedro Sula, just past the El Pino Community is an entrance to the park. Almost immediately after passing the Quebrada Seca Bridge you will take the second detour to the left and follow the road towards the mountain range for about one mile. Here you will find the start of the Zacate River trail, which is about 1 ½ miles long. The trail leads you up into the forest following the course of the crystal clear Zacate River. At the end of the trail a spectauclar waterfall will reward you. En route, you will find many refreshing and inviting swimming holes. A variety of tropical birds, including the keel-billed toucan are easily seen along the trail. With luck, white-faced monkeys might also be seen..
