If you enjoy walking, just leave the house on foot and within minutes you are heading into the Hondonero area of natural beauty. There are wonderful wooded mountains and beautiful meadows (in season these are covered in wild flowers). The mountains and the paths that run through them are very popular with climbers, horse riders and mountain-bikers.
