Lago de Yojoa

Lake Yojoa (Lago de Yojoa) is the largest natural lake in Honduras. It is 95 feet deep, 4 miles wide, and 10 miles long. The lake sits at the base of two mountainous national parks. Santa Barbara National Park rises above the Northern shore, and Cerro Azul Meambar National Park towers above the Southern shore. It is an easy place to reach, as the main highway between San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa passes alongside Lake Yojoa.

There is plenty to do in this peaceful region. Birders will delight in a lake tour, which provides a special vantage point for viewing many of the several hundred bird species. The climate is excellent for growing coffee, and as such, there are a few “fincas” or coffee plantations that can be toured, as well as a micro brewery. There are hot springs to dip in, caves to explore, and the Pulhapanzak Waterfalls to hike to during your time in Lake Yojoa.
