One of the public access to the Pico Bonito National Park is by the Rio Cangrejal. This access is made more accessible, as this more closely, not crosses private property and even public transport you can take to get there.

Moreover, there are several hotels in the Rio Cangrejal where you can accommodate so be there early in the morning and enter the park early. Other alternatives include Villas Pico Bonito, Jungle River Lodge, Omega Tours Jungle Lodge and La Villa de Soledad B & B, a beautiful boutique in the basin of the Rio Cangrejal hotel.

There are two different networks of trails that allow you to practice hiking or walking in this area of Pico Bonito National Park. The first is very near the community of El Naranjo, at Km. 8.5 of the road from La Ceiba to Yaruca. Here you will find the visitor center where you can get information, register as a visitor and pay your entrance fee to the park.Access to the park, which is across the river is via a magnificent hammock or suspension of more than 120 meters long bridge, which will make you feel like a true adventurer explorer!

In the park, there are two paths: The Path Path Rock and Raccoon. The first is a round circuit, which eventually connects to the Raccoon Trail, where you can either return to the starting point or continue to the majestic waterfall of El Bejuco. The Sendero La Roca requires about 1 ½ hours to travel the circuit, and the Path Raccoon requires about 3 hours in total, between flow and return.

The other access site is ahead of Las Mangas village. Here is a trail called Sendero Guaruma, which was built and is maintained by a local organization called Guaruma that promotes social and environmental values in the community. This trail is ideal for older people with mobility problems or small children who can not stand a long walk.

The community enterprise Cangrejal Tours offers guided walks on both trails. In addition, tour operators Jungle River Tours, La Mosquitia and Omega Tours Eco Adventures offers guided trails that are accessed from the Visitor Center tours.
