Adventure filled hours literally flying from tree top to tree top in one of the zip line Canopy Tours available within La Ceiba is another option. If you prefer silently paddling through mangrove canals you can sneak up on curious monkeys as they relax in the top of mangrove forests in beautiful natural marine estuaries. You can do this at Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge and at the Cacao Lagoon. The latter is part of the Nombre de Dios National Park, close to Sambo Creek.
Then again, you can choose to hike through the tropical rainforest. There you can search for over 200 tropical bird species identified within Pico Bonito and Nombre de Dios National Parks. Or how about hiking to the top of a secluded waterfall and then rappelling down its face to the bottom? Perhaps your cup of tea is horseback riding through local communities and in jungle trails. If so, Omega Tours offers a great horse back riding tour!
But then, perhaps you prefer to visit some pristine tropical isles in the Caribbean. There you can go snorkeling in some of the best preserved reefs in the Western Caribbean Sea. If this is the case, Cayos Cochinos is just for you!
