This is a must see at Tela! Large trees, lots of plants and plenty of green! If you love gardens, you’ll love Lancetilla. I know I do. Hours and hours should be spent admiring everything this place has to offer.

The Gardens were largely a lovely walk with a collection of trees from all over the world. We enjoyed the walk with a naturalist in the rain.

When people head to Tela, they think about the beach. Often, they should also think about crowds, loud music, and obnoxious 4-wheelers tearing up and down the beach. If you're in the Tela area and wish for a little tranquility, you should head to Lancetilla....More

The garden is mostly trees. Good history lesson of Honduras, but I would not do it again. Overpriced for what you get.

Because the botanical garden was advertised as being an area over 1600 hectares, we expected to be able to wander around several kilometres. However the staff advised us not to leave an kilometre long path near the visitors center. There were longer paths marked on...More
