Driving to La Villa de Soledad in your own car, the instructions are easy. If you are coming from San Pedro Sula or La Ceiba’s International airport, continue on the CA13 paved road towards the port city of Trujillo. Between Km 199 and 200 you will pass over a fairly large bridge over the Cangrejal River that is clearly marked as “Puente Saopin”.
Pico Bonito National Park Visitors Center
Go over the bridge and immediately after getting to the eastern side of it there is paved street leading into the mountains (this would be to your right) with several signs marking the “Cuenca del Cangrejal”. Take this road, which is paved for a short distance, and when the pavement finishes keep going towards your left. From here there is a short 8 km (5 mile) drive to La Villa de Soledad. As you are getting close, you will pass a few small hotels (Jungle River Lodge, Villas Pico Bonito) as well as the Visitors Center for Pico Bonito National Park, where the swinging bridge is located.
About 150 meters past the Visitor Center you will see a clearly marked sign on the left with a road leading up to the mountain. This is the entrance to La Villa de Soledad, which is just above the road! Bienvenido!!!
