Welcome to Lago de Yojoa
Lago de Yojoa's birdlife is world-class: the latest species count is up to 485 – over half the total in Honduras – including the elusive quetzal. You can also hike to remote waterfalls and the summit of Santa Bárbara, visit coffee plantations, go zip-lining or kayak on the lake itself (swimming is possible but the lake is shallow and chock-full of vegetation).
Peña Blanca is the main transportation hub near the lake; it's a bustling but uninteresting commercial town. Los Naranjos, an otherwise unremarkable village some way down the road, is where most travelers base themselves at D&D Brewery.
