Parque Nacional Pico Bonito
Parque Nacional Pico Bonito Review
You can't miss Pico Bonito, the majestic peak rising behind La Ceiba that turns a deep blue at dusk. Parque Nacional Pico Bonito is named after the 7,989-foot peak. Rugged and little explored, Parque Nacional Pico Bonito harbors some amazing primary tropical wet forest. There are 22 rivers that run through the park, meaning there are numerous cold-water pools where you can stop for a dip. Guides see jaguars and ocelots with impressive regularity, although the enormity of the area means you are lucky if you glimpse these fearsome creatures.
The most popular route through the park leads to a waterfall called La Ruidosa (meaning "The Noisy One"). Trails are fairly well maintained, but it is best to go with a guide. They are found through the Fundación Parque Nacional Pico Bonito office in La Ceiba.
