The basics

Hiking and wildlife spotting are the main things to do in La Tigra National Park. The park has six marked walking trails to explore, some taking you to local waterfalls as the La Cascada trail does. Those interested in wildlife have the chance of spotting animals ranging from ocelots and pumas to deer and armadillos. To save the hassle of arranging transport and navigating the park alone, opt for tours that explore the park as a day trip from Tegucigalpa.

There are only two access roads that lead into La Tigra National Park; one in the east at Jutiapa and one in the west at El Rosario. The easiest way to reach it from Tegucigalpa is to travel towards San Juancito along the RN25, turning off for the town and continuing along to El Rosario.

When to get there

Honduras is a tropical country and since you’ll be spending your time out in the forest, you’ll want to avoid the rainy season which hits between May and October. Try to go to La Tigra National Park in the dry season between November and April, although there should be more water going over the park’s waterfalls if you go early in the season around November.
