Beautiful area

We arrived with only about 3 hrs to hike. The park ranger was very helpful explaining the trails and difficulty level. The hike followed a river and a stream. I was enthralled with the views, topography and birds. I would love to come again and camp, hiki

Good local museum

If you have less than an hour but would like to get a feeling for the local culture, this museum is nice to visit. I wouldn’t put it on the do-not-miss list, but it was pleasant to walk a little ways away from main part of town and see it.

Extreme!

Recommended for extreme and adventure seekers. One of the highest canopies in Central America. La Campa is a nice, small and safe town 35mins away from Gracias. Highest cable: 320m, longest cable 600m. Very friendly guides, beautiful views and lots of adrenaline!
