The heart of downtown Tegucigalpa

This is the historic downtown of Tegucigalpa and you can see that when you visit! We were there on a Sunday morning about 10:30am and again at 2:30pm. Lots of people coming and... read more

You need to be very careful of yourselves when in this park. Does not have a good feeling when there are many police stationed in a park

This is the historic downtown of Tegucigalpa and you can see that when you visit! We were there on a Sunday morning about 10:30am and again at 2:30pm. Lots of people coming and going from the Catedral and lots of people with their kids (and vendors selling toys, balloons, candy), and also people gathering for the free concert. There are... More

A true park setting for locals and tourists. Street performers, live music, food carts, and very centrally located to coffee shops, a couple of bars, and excellent shops of authentic Honduran wares.

It's a GREAT PLACE to people watch, get something to eat on the street and an overall good time but I thought it would be much more like a park setting. That being said, the public Wi-Fi access was displayed and it connected quickly. I really liked that feature.

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
