The dirty and uninspiring central park is not a nice place to be in, everybody is in a rush and poverty riddles every corner. You get an unsettling sensation that you might get mugged. The cathedral is nice to look at but go during the day and don't wear jewelry or flash you phone in public. Parking is usually easy... More

It is a tiny but very pretty square. People are hanging around sitting on the benches around the huge trees.

Very busy and nice plaza, there you can see the statue of Francisco Morazan, one of the great heroes of the country who fought for independence and dreamed of Central America as one nation. You can also visit the beautiful colonial Cathedral where you will feel as if you have traveled back in time a couple of hundred years. The... More

as mentioned by most reviewer, this is a great starting and ending point when visiting tegucigalpa. from here, you can walk/travel to the other attractions. if you are not used to a very crowded place, then this not the place for you. i passed by here the morning and afternoon - it remains crowded. lots of shops around the area...

We have been here more than once. It is always packed with people. The church on the park is beautiful and worth a look. There is a flea type market there as well which has row after row of clothing, hard goods, souvenirs, etc. A visit there gives a great local Honduran city feel.

The Central Plaza is always busy. There is a nice statue of the national hero. The church church is lovely and the street vendors and shoe shines add flavour.

We arrived, breathless after a forty minute ride in rush hour traffic, to be greeted by cooing pigeons, a muted fountain, and the vibrant sounds of Teguc residents discussing everything from family matter, to soccer, to the latest in Honduran politics. The Cathedral at one end of the park forms a stunning backdrop to this beehive of activity. People craving... More

I know that it is common to want to go downtown to see the plaza in a lot of C.A. cities but this one is just not a good idea. I had a business down here for over two years so I got to do a lot of observing. First of all there isn't that much to see and at... More
