The largest department of Honduras offers a mix of natural adventures (from easy to moderate difficulty), contact with country life, like the coffee harvest (from October to December) or cattle ranching and the great culinary tradition it inspires.

If you like to try the flavors of places you visit, you cannot leave without having tapado olanchano stew, the star dish of this region that also produces tasty cheeses and other dairy products. In the dry season, do not miss having some coyol, a refreshingly sweet wine, which is a liquid found in the trunks of the coyol palm trees.

Nature is encountered in places like the Cerro Boqueron National Monument and the Sierra Agalta National Park, in whose land you find the Talgua Caves and their “glowing skulls”. Olancho is an agricultural and livestock department with many years of farming tradition that evolves step by step towards a more developed agribusiness.
