Taken from the Abelow PR release, on Mar 5 2013, this article includes information about the new "Family Learning Adventures, Birdwatching, Photography and Philanthropy" that is planned for this summer at Pico Bonito, La Cieba, Hondorus. The Lodge has been named one of the world's top eco-lodges by National Geographic Traveler,andt is the second largest national park in Honduras, one with a pristine jungle and diverse ecosytem.
This is an excellent choice to hold the 'family summer series' for parents and children which includes educational and philanthropic activities ranging from bird watching to nature photography lessons. The series is in line with Clemson University's analysis of a U.S. Department of education study, which found that children who travel over summer break had an advantage over those who did not. According to Dr Bill Norman, of Clemenson University "providing kids with the experience of travel broadens their horizon and open up their minds to learning"
The Eco Lodge at Pico Bonita is a haven for endangered flora and fauna. Located 30 minutes from La Cieba, it sits on 400 acres of an unspoilt rainforest, between two roaring rivers, and features bird watching towers, private hiking trails, and a pool. Participants can take philanthropic trips to deliver toys and clothes to nearby orphanages.
To encourage participation in the summer series, the lodge is offering a 30% discount off the regular room rates, for travel between April 8 and December 20, 2013. Visit here for rates.
