Western Honduras

This magnificent 43m waterfall on the Río Lindo is 17km north of Lago de Yojoa (and also an easy day trip from San Pedro Sula). Surrounded by lush forest, it's a privately run beauty spot where guides will lead you along a fun, challenging path behind the waterfall (L300). There's good swimming and zip-lining (L550) right over the falls.

Take dry clothes if you do the waterfall walk, and be aware that it can get very crowded here on weekends.
