1. Tour the Caves of Taulabe.

You will enjoy the roar of the mountain. You just need a great group of friends to have a good time.

2. Explore the canopy in La Campa, Lempira.

It’s over 300 meters high, with views of the canon below and zipline ride.

3. If the canopy is not enough adrenaline, go skydiving over the Bay of Tela.

It will be the most tropical free fall of your life.

4. Go snorkeling in the National Marine monument of Cayos Cochinos.

This archipelago is surrounded by coral reefs that form the Mesoamerican Coral reef, the second largest in the world.
