We were invited to go for a private tour of the newly opened Eco Caribbean Culture Park in Hottest Sparrow here on the island. John Nelson is a fellow Pastor with the Baptist Association and he and his sweet wife recently opened this new tourist spot.
It was not only an extremely beautiful place to visit but also very educational. John was a wonderful tour guide as he walked us through the park and taught us so much about the flora and fauna of the plants and flowers that are native to this island. He also told us how some of them were used medicinally and how you could cook with others.
He even gave us “samples” of some of the things we got to see such as cashews (picture above in the top middle and top right pictures). We also got to eat “miracle berries” that are from China (bottom left picture). It was all delicious too! One of the other interesting things found in the park is the rock carvings. Men here on the island sculpted rocks to tell stories of the history not only of Roatan but also of mainland Honduras as well. All throughout the park, you can find various rock carvings and every rock tells a story!
We enjoyed such a wonderful morning touring this amazing Eco Cultural Park and highly recommend it if you are visiting Roatan because not only will you be amazed at the beauty of it but you also will learn so much too. Thank you John & Sandra for treating our family to such a blessed time at your new place!
