Blanca Jeannette Kawas National Park (Punta SAL)

West end of Tela Bay is the Blanca Jeannette Kawas National Park. It takes its name from a great activist environmentalist who gave her life fighting for the preservation of this beautiful natural area. The park has two distinct different areas: the Punta Sal peninsula and the Los Micos lagoon.

The park is one of the largest in Honduras considering its size and biodiversity. The small bays that are part of this peninsula served as a refuge for some of the most famous pirates of the Caribbean. Likewise, the peninsula forms a natural barrier that protects the beautiful Bay of Tela from storms coming from the north.

The peninsula is only accessible by sea, and today a symbolic fee is charged to arrive at the park, same which is administered by PROLANSATE an ecologist foundation.

Visitors are presented with a charming landscape: Fine white sand beaches, exotic and lush jungle and an attractive coral reef inhabited by colorful tropical fish. In addition, during the tour, is very easy to have an exciting encounter with animals like dolphins, monkeys and many species of birds, making your ride an unforgettable eco-adventure.
