This downtown square/park is a good place to view Honduran culture, and watch the hustle and bustle of the capital city. The cathedral is more beautiful and feels more authentic than the national basilica in town, I would just warn you that the park was packed with people when we visited. It is also downtown, so if you are a... More

I absolutely love this park. It is one of those place where you can shop, eat, play, pray, visit, relax, dance, and have fun all at once. It is a huge labyrinth of walking paths and strip malls, with a quaint charm and beautiful statues of Hondurian Heroes (Francisco Morazan). The only problem is that it is right in the... More

Having grown up in the area, I remember as a child coming here at least once a week. Almost all government buildings and important commercial banks and stores were located here. It was well kept and safe, despite being very busy. Then there was a "modernization" and commerce and government went to newer areas of city and this park was... More

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.
