Honduras' Caribbean Coast Sights

Jardín Botánico Lancetilla

  • Garden/Arboretum

Fodor's Review

This botanical garden, the second largest in the world, holds more than 1,200 varieties of plants marked by name, country of origin, and date of introduction. Around 365 species of birds have made it their home, and birders come to see a variety of colorful parrots. The garden holds the best collection of Asian fruit trees in tropical America, and a large orchid greenhouse shows off myriad varieties of the national flower. There are short trails through the main gardens, and longer trails go back into the hills and plantations, so there is something for all ages and interests.
