Honduras Flora Photos

Parque Nacional Pico Bonito is the largest protected area in Honduras after the Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve. Spanning over 7800 feet (2400 meters) in elevation and capped by the 7900-foot-high (2435 m) Pico Bonito, the park ranges from humid tropical broadleaf forest to high cloud forests.

The park is perhaps the best place in Honduras to see endangered wildlife and is well known for its spectacular waterfalls.
