I go very frequently to this park. Has many recreational activities to do in groups of family, friends or companies like walking, birdwatching, it has the Rosy Walther Zoo, aquatic activities for children, canopy, etc. Its very close by to Tegucigalpa and in the same route to La Tigra National Park.

El Picacho is a very nice national park. It is clean and safe. The highlight is the statue of Christ which is a replica of the one in Brazil. The views of Tegucigalpa from the park are breathtaking as it sits high above the city. The zoo is relatively nice by Honduran standards and there is also a lovely botantical... More

Be sure not to miss El Picacho. It is a beautiful park to walk through and once you arrive at the Christ statue, it is mesmerizing. Looking out over the city of Tegucigalpa, you are in awe of the vast city and landscape.

This area is very beautful sadly there is some trash from people littering. Hopefully they clean it up. I went there rock climbing with the local climbers has a few good easy rootes.

This park, located outside of the city center, has a variety of trails and different little attractions. It is very popular with the locals, especially on the weekends. Plan to pay three small fees to park your vehicle, to enter the park, and to access the Christ statue. Dog friendly!

This is a "must go" place due to the good walk to get there, fresh air, nice view of the Honduran Capital and also to take good pictures. Families would love such a place. A fee is charged in order to enter. Recommended
