Named after the bulky mountain protruding from the tropical landscape south of La Ceiba, Pico Bonito National Park - the largest in Honduras - stretches from sea level to 2,378m. The variation of altitude promises great biodiversity. The park shelters tropical hardwood forest, cloud forest, deep canyons, rivers and waterfalls.
The lower sections of the park are more accessible for visitors with a number of walking trails. The forests are home to a wide array of wildlife including jaguars, mountain lions, ocelots, armadillos, howler and spider monkeys and 275 bird species. Activities such as rafting and swimming are available in the park.

Where to go when - our guide to Pico Bonito National Park
The weather in Pico Bonito National Park is wide and varied
Pico Bonito National Park comprises pristine tropical forest and is an ideal place for wildlife spotting. The national park ranges from 60 metres above sea level all the way to 2,500 metres, so weather can vary dramatically from the hotel to the base of your excursion. The lowest reaches have a hot tropical climate all year round, ranging from 25-30oC, but the climate varies with altitude and can be refreshingly cool the higher you climb.View our Pico Bonito National Park weather guide
