The Rio Viejo, Rio Blanco and Rio Yaruca all join within 300 feet, and immediately plunge into a deep canyon. The largest, and El Rio Bonito magnificent of these rivers is the Cangrejal River.

The River begins approximately 25 km. This peak has an altitude of 2,584 meters above sea level 8,478 ft. This rugged geographic terrain creates many rivers and creeks that tumble from the altitudes to the Caribbean coast in a few kilometres.

Together, this provides for unique, world class scenery that is difficult to find elsewhere. The peak of Pico Bonito is only 20 km from the Caribbean Coast of Honduras!!! Most of this range has a protected area status due to being part of Pico Bonito or Nombre de Dios National Park. It flows into the Atlantic and divides the city of in two.

Although mammals are harder to see, ocelots, jaguars, giant anteaters, white faced monkeys, porcupines, armadillos, guatuzas and nutrias have all been spotted within the territory encompassed by these two National Parks in the vicinity of the Cangrejal River. This river offers crystal clear waters, huge boulders, and a the dense jungle along its banks.

The river is in the municipality of La Ceiba, its watershed is within the Nombre de Dios mountain range. The highest peak in this mountain range is Pico Bonito. The mountain range rises abruptly from El Rio Bonito level.

From this point, the River drops from 870 feet to sea level in only 25 km 15 miles.

The Cangrejal River in La Ceiba, Honduras

Because of the lush tropical vegetation that is part of the national parks, the in the area is absolutely outstanding. The Cangrejal River is one of the most scenic rivers in Central America. Thus, they create El Rio Bonito, breathtaking waterfalls and turbulent currents that rush towards the sea. 15 miles from its mouth on the Caribbean Sea. The Cangrejal River gets its name from the crabs that once were abundant at the mouth of the river. This makes it one of the steepest rivers in Central America!

Three small rivers merge to form the mighty Cangrejal. The longest hiking trail there will take you to the El Bejuco waterfall, a good three hour round trip hike.
