7 days / 6 nights from/to San Pedro Sula
Day 4: Celaque National Park and Gracias
In the morning we transfer to the nearby Celaque National Park. Today's hiking in the Celaque National Park leads us through typical Central American pine forests and cloud forest. Honduras' highest peak with its 2,849 m can be found here, the Cerro de Las Minas. Celaque means Box of Water in the local Lenca language. In the afternoon we discover the colonial history of Gracias with its churches and the fortress San Cristobal. In 1537, Gracias and the surrounding mountains were the setting for the last battle lead by the Lenca leader Lempira. In honour to this famous indigenous leader who resisted the Spaniards for such a long time, the Honduran currency has been named after him. Seven years after his fall, in 1544, the Spaniards proclaimed the town of Gracias as headquarters for the garrison of Guatemala.
Day 5: Gracias - Cerro Azul Meambar National Park
We transfer to the region around Yojoa Lake, which is rich in different habitat types. It is home or temporal host to a huge amount of migratory birds. Before we arrive at the park we visit the impressive Pulhapanzak Waterfalls. Our way up to the visitor's center is made possible thanks to our 4-wheel drive. 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, orioles, motmots, parakeets and parrots are just a small sample of the bird species living in the park. We explore the magnificent tropical forest types of the Cerro Azul Meambar National Park. The national park is one of the main protected areas around Lake Yojoa, which is fed by the small rivers of the surrounding mountains. 2 overnights at Cerro Azul Meambar Visitor's Centre.
Day 6: Cerro Azul Meambar National Park

We enjoy amazing views of the Lake Yojoa and discover the park's diverse flora and fauna. Jaguars, ocelots, peccary, coatis and baird's tapir are just a few of the many animals that can be found here. During a visit to Cerro Azul Meambar, a lot of 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.
