About 30 minutes’ drive from Tegucigalpa, Valle de Angeles is on a plain below Monte San Juan, with Cerro El Picacho (2270m) and Cerro La Tigra nearby. It is a popular spot for trips from the city, with a cool climate year round and is surrounded by pine forests. There are tracks going through the forests, old mines to explore, a picnic area and a swimming pool; consequently it is crowded on Sundays. At the top of Cerro El Picacho there is a stunning view of the city, and if so inclined you can visit the zoo (daily, 0800-1500, US$0.20) of mostly indigenous animals including jaguar, spider monkeys and other animals and birds.
