Tourism has had a great effect on the development of a new hot spot destination in Honduras. This has brought hope back to the people that the villages will be able to profit from their services and not agriculture. With time activities have bloom and created fresh new things to do at the park. Excellent reviews of tourist visiting the area have helped the quantity of travelers looking for adventures in San Pedro Sula.
Many activities are available on the zone but this are the new ones I most like. You can also check out more activities at our preview blog of ¨Top 10 things to do at Cusuco National Park¨
Waterfall rappelling: The national park has the availability of adventure sports! We just discovered a new route which takes you to a venture that you´ll end up loving. To get to the rappelling spot you need to hike through a fresh pristine pathway which starts to pump up the adrenaline. In the jungle you gear up with knee pads, harness, jacket, and a GoPro Hd helmet camera to film your experience! Start with 10 meters of diagonal rappelling through the jungle, the sound of Orion waterfall and a 35 meter fall makes this spot a unique experience. Most people stay 5 minutes hanging from the rope to watch this spectacle. Are you up for it?
Night Hikes: Just because the day ended it doesn´t mean that activities will get slow. Once the jungle camp is finished we get ready for a walk in one of the country´s most interesting destination. The jungle wakes up at night and the sound of millions of animals becomes a magical orchestra. Slowly hiking with head torches looking for animals next to the pathways we find a diverse range of biodiversity. Strange looking bugs of all shapes and colors sharpen the night with the bizarre way of nature´s evolution. Amphibians, salamanders and snakes follow in the list of fauna found. Up in the trees animals look at you with the same weird sensation you stare at them.
Bird Watching: After spending the nighttime sleeping in your tent you are wake up with the sound of singing birds. Just walking across the camp becomes an exhibition of different species. The beautiful singing of these animals, the sound of every tree branch touching each other with the soft winds and the smell of the morning fresh moist everywhere makes you think how amazing our world is.
Try the HIGH quality / traditional / organic coffee: The perfect way to start a new hiking day is the famous cup of coffee. Farmers of the area don’t have money to invest in chemical fertilizers so they figure the way to make their coffee just amazing with traditional techniques. Called ¨Café de palo¨(coffee of tree) It has few days of being cut from the tree, can´t get fresher than that! The villagers pay much attention on how their coffee is prepared and will be aware of your face with the first try.
Bond with the village: After spending a day or two with the villagers and their family people start getting attach to them and their way of life. It´s impressive how they can have so little and be so happy. One of the things I must enjoy is seeing how foreign cultures interact and relationships are born. My biggest goal is to show the world how our people live all the social factors of our society. We are just one people, the Human race and we are meant to be united and work together for the development of all societies. Remember that one person can change the world and the life of thousands of people. Keep in mind that everything you do today has an impact on the future. What´s the impact you want to make?
Hope you have a good weather to check the sea of clouds!
