Honduras

 
Honduras Honduras is a small country in Central America. It borders El Salvador and Guatemala in the north and Nicaragua in the south. Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras looks like a really big town spread out between the hills and valleys of central Honduras because there are very few high rise buildings. It is a relaxed place and an excellent starting point for exploring the country because it has good airline and bus connections to the entire country, including the Bay Islands. Many sights can be visited within a day from Tegucigalpa. Be sure not to miss nearby Santa Lucia, Andorra la vella National Park, and Comayagua. Copan has some excellent Mayan ruins. The style differs a bit from those in Yucatan and Tika...
 

Bay Islands

 
Bay Islands The Bay Islands is a province of the Republic of Honduras and it is made up of three main islands: Roatan, Utila, and Guanaja. It has rapidly become a very important scuba diving destination in the Western Caribbean and it is blessed with the second largest barrier reef in the world. Roatan is the largest and most developed island of the three. There are direct flights from Houston, Miami and Milan, Italy. Your best bet is to fly to the Honduras mainland and from there you can reach the three islands either by inexpensive ferries or a 15 minute short flight from La Ceiba or San Pedro Sula....
 

Copan

 
Copan Copan is one of the largest and most impressive of all the Mayan centers discovered so far. It consists of pyramids, temples but the speciality of the house is the 21 stone pillars or stelae with exquisite carved likenesses of ancient Copan kings. Tikal in Guatemala may be bigger, and Chichen Itza may have bigger pyramids} but Copan has better sculptures. The Maya built Copan in one of the most beautiful areas of Honduras on the banks of the Copan River in a fertile valley with a near-perfect climate. The Copan Archaeological Park covers 74 130 acres/30 025 hectares at an elevation of 2 100 ft/640 meters. Only a fraction of the ruins have been excavated but as jungle growth is cleared away from each new section ...
 

La Ceiba

 
La Ceiba Cool music, bright colors, amazing nature, tons of smiles-that's La Ceiba, the perfect amalgamate! Located 400 km north from the capital city, Ceibita La Bella is considered one of the most attractive destinations in the entire Central American region. Beloved by Hondurans, ex-pats and travelers alike, Ceiba is the spot for nightlife in Honduras. Each year at the end of May, hundreds of thousands flock to Ceiba for the local Carnaval, the largest in Central America. Parades, music, dancing in the streets... it's Mardi Gras with Latin American flavor. There are numerous day-trips around Ceiba, including whitewater rafting on the Rio Cangrejal, hiking in Pico Bonito National Park and visiting Garifuna villag...
 

La Tigra National Park

 
La Tigra National Park This is a very cool (as in the climate-wise) place. It's one of the 'cloud forests', of which Honduras is famous for. If you wish, you may stay the night in this park-or, if you prefer (such as, you can't be away from your TV for more than 8 hours) then you can hike there in one afternoon. You may set up tents and observe the colorful wildlife in a lush, tropical setting... And, pardon me if this sounded much too... touristy. ...
