En el Parque Nacional La Tigra

One of the unique experiences I had last week in Honduras was to go on a guided hike in the La Tigra national park just outside Tegucigalpa. It’s a cloud forest that supplies most of the city’s water, and is home to a large amount of wildlife. We didn’t see any jaguars (which I had mixed emotions about) but what we did see was spectacular, and a whole new side of Honduras for me.
