Honduras national parks offer wild adventure

21st May 2013

National parks in Honduras are emerging as an incredible holiday destination with a stunning array of wildlife.

Honduras - one of the gems of Central America flying under the mainstream tourism radar - is a sparsely populated nation with unique wilderness areas and deep fairytale forests making for a nature lover's dream destination.

The country is home to over 700 species of bird, including the Harpy eagle, along with other extremely rare mammals such as jaguars, pumas, giant anteaters and mantled howler monkeys living in the national parks.

For the most extensive areas of cloud forest, the La Moskitia region is the place to be.

One of the few remaining undisturbed true wildernesses anywhere in the world, La Moskitia offers a thrilling experience even for travellers who are well experienced in trekking holidays and specialist tours to isolated regions.

Elsewhere in Honduras the Barbareta Marine National Park offers remarkable scenery buzzing with wildlife and rich with exotic plants on a private island.

In addition to the picture-perfect sandy beaches and coral reefs, there are also jungle trails taking in Mayan archaeological sites within the rich, lush forest.
