Both parks offer an abundance of eco-adventures, from hiking through lush rainforest to paddling along mangrove canals to snorkelling and diving the pristine waters teeming with preserved coral reef. The authentic Honduras experience continues with explorations of the second largest botanical gardens in the world – Lancetilla Jardin Botanico – or the largest concentration of traditional Garifuna villages. For that perfect vacation day, park yourself on one of Tela's beautiful beaches, especially the white sands of Cocalito Beach for blue skies, turquoise waters, and golden rays of sunshine.
