Waterfalls are one of the most spectacular of nature’s expressions. Everyone dreams with being under a waterfall, jumping down from the top of a fall into a lovely pool or simply hold your beloved companions hand while staring into a waterfall. The rugged mountains of Nombre de Dios and the tropical rain forests around Atlantida provide the perfect setting for scenic, magnificent waterfalls, however plentiful and actually quite common, most of the Pico Bonito Waterfalls require an effort to get to see them and appreciate them!
Without doubt, the most popular of Pico Bonito Waterfalls is the Rio Zacate Waterfall. This fall is at the end of the Rio Zacate trail, and is a magnificent reward for those who have made the effort to hike up the steep slopes of the trail to get to this point.
Another of the more famed Pico Bonito Waterfalls is the El Bejuco Waterfall, located in the Cangrejal River Valley. www.cangrejalriver.com This lovely waterfall can actually be seen from the dirt road the leads from La Ceiba through the valley and on to the community of Yaruca.
However, if you are adventuresome, and follow any creek flowing towards the major rivers, you will surely find a variety of waterfalls of different altitudes hidden in the rain forests.
Perhaps the most beautiful and unique of these Pico Bonito waterfalls are those known as “Unbelievable Falls” This magnificent fall is about a two hour hike from the Lodge at Pico Bonito and will require that you are in shape, but you will be rewarded with a truly beautiful site.
