3 days / 2 nights from/to San Pedro Sula
guaranteed and daily departures with 2 passengers only

Day 1: San Pedro Sula - Cerro Azul Meambar National Park
Meet with our guide in the morning and transfer to Cerro Azul Meambar National Park, looming over the eastern side of Yojoa Lake. The region around Yojoa Lake is rich in different habitat types and home or temporal host to a huge amount of migratory birds. Before we arrive at the park, we visit the impressive Pulhapanzak Waterfalls, which has been an important ceremonial and cultural site for the ancient Maya. The National Park Cerro Azul Meambar works as a retreating area for a lot of species because of increased human activities around the lake. Toucans, oriels, motmots, parakeets and parrots are just a small sample of the bird species living in the park. 2 overnights at Cerro Azul Meambar Visitor's Centre.

Day 2: Cerro Azul Meambar National Park
Today we explore the magnificent tropical forest types of the Cerro Azul Meambar National Park. Ranging from 415 to 2,080 m, the park contains coffee plantations, lowland humid forests, pine forest, and cloud forest. The rare elfin forest, which is a bizarre ecosystem of stunted oak and pine trees, covered with moss and lichen, can be found on the highest peaks in the centre of the park. Due to its location at the transition from the hot northern lowlands to the cooler, more arid mountain country, Cerro Azul Meambar supports an unusually diverse animal population. We hike to the interchange zone between the tropical rainforest and the tropical cloud forest enjoying impressive views of the lake.

Day 3: Cerro Azul Meambar National Park - San Pedro Sula
In the morning we take our last nature hike, before we transfer to Lago Yojoa. During a visit to Cerro Azul Meambar, many people compare the region with the gardens of Eden. The landscape is marked by an innumerable amount of small brooks and waterfalls that are surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. About noon you have the chance to try the famous bass right out of the lake in one of the numerous restaurants on the banks of the Lake Yojoa. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere at Honduras' largest natural lake. In the late afternoon we return to San Pedro Sula. End of program or extend your stay with another of our itineraries.
