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 ziplining or kayak on the lake itself (swimming is possible but the lake is shallow and choc-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.
