The Jeannette Kawas National Park, AKA Punta Sal National Park is the most popular nature attraction in Tela. Located in the far Western end of the Bay of Tela, Punta Sal National Park offers a lovely peninsula with two beautiful, pristine little bays on its Western end, as well as the Los Micos Lagoon and a long stretch of white sand beaches. This is a marine tour, since the only way to get to the Peninsula is by boat. Typically, the boats leave from either the Lancetilla River estuary or from the sand bars that form at the mouth of the Lancetilla River.
You will find that there are many different people and businesses offering this tour, and that the price can be easily negotiated. We do recommend that you take into consideration that since this tour deals with the ocean and vessels, hiring the wrong boat could get you into trouble if it breaks down or has a problem in high surf. Because of this, we highly recommend that you look for one of the certified Atlantida tour operators, who provide regular maintenance on their boats, and make sure that all the safety features are operating accordingly.
