With gritty San Pedro Sula to the north and the sprawl of Tegucigalpa to the south, the appeal of Honduras’s central highlands lies in their relative serenity. Whether it’s an early-morning birding trip on Lago de Yojoa or a twilight stroll around former capital Comayagua, this is a region for relaxation. The one exception is the Catarata de Pulhapanzak, a 43m waterfall that you can clamber behind and explore, or simply admire the crashing white water from the comfort of a picnic spot.
