DIPA Los Naranjos

DIPA Sites – Los Naranjos

The Eco-Archaeological Park of Los Naranjos is located on the northern shore of Lake Yojoa in the Municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Department of Cortés. Los Naranjos lies 80 km south of San Pedro Sula and 155 km northwest of Tegucigalpa. In 1995, the basin of Lake Yojoa was declared a National Monument. In 1996, the Asociación Copan created the park’s first Management Plan, and in 2001 the park began operating.

At Los Naranjos, DIPA will be involved in the creation of a new Management Plan. With its rich cultural resources and an impressive natural landscape, Los Naranjos has tremendous potential to draw visitors interested in archaeology and the natural environment.
