This park, located outside of the city center, has a variety of trails and different little attractions. It is very popular with the locals, especially on the weekends. Plan to pay three small fees to park your vehicle, to enter the park, and to access the Christ statue. Dog friendly!

This is a "must go" place due to the good walk to get there, fresh air, nice view of the Honduran Capital and also to take good pictures. Families would love such a place. A fee is charged in order to enter. Recommended

This park is a very nice walk, it is broad so you can spend a few hours looking at everything, good excercise. It is also safe.

I have been to Picacho 20 times and love it every time. You get the option of going to the great zoo we have for very little cost, a kids bike park, several acres of walking and picnic space. Wonderful views of the city from two sides. I have never felt unsafe there and you get a lot of neat... More
