Mountains and forests in Atlantida are a very common occurrence! The highest coastal peak in the Atlantic coast of North America is to be found precisely in Atlantida: Pico Bonito. This peak is home to some of the densest tropical forests in Central America. Atlantida, which has three protected areas within the Nombre de Dios Mountain Range, is truly is the king of mountains and forests in Central America.
These rugged mountains are dressed with the greenest forests throughout the year. Their geography makes them almost impenetrable, and they are completely unsuited for farming because of their steep slopes. Behind the evergreen tropical rainforests lie many hidden treasures and surprises. This is the land of the ocelots and the jaguars. Here sparkling clear creeks tumble down from the mountaintops creating beautiful waterfalls. If you are looking for a truly unique hike through the forests, this is the ideal location. Easy access from the gateway city of La Ceiba makes Atlantida a unique hiking destination.
There is no better place in Central America to enjoy tropical rain forests and all the diverse life you can find within them!
