Honduras is a most surprising destination. One moment you’re walking through an ancient Mayan cultural centre, the next you’re exploring the world’s second largest coral reef system, or tracking through dense jungle.
What makes this under-visited country so special? Talk to our consultants and they will happily give you at least half a dozen reasons to visit Honduras.
Copan, for example, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for over 35 years and wandering around its Mayan cultural centre – past intricately carved monuments known as stelae – you’ll understand why. Walking around the Honduran cities of Tegucigalpa and Comayagua will show you the life – and architecture – from more recent historic periods.
A change of pace beckons at the beaches of the Bay Islands on the Caribbean coast. A different world too, as you dive beneath the waves to encounter the curious marine denizens of Earth’s second largest coral reef system.
Pico Bonito National Park, with its cloud forests, dry lowlands, picturesque rivers and dense jungle, gives you the opportunity to watch audacious birds, wild pigs, monkeys and even jaguars in their natural habitat. But for a different sort of wild life, visit Honduras to see the vivacious Easter festivals, the musical celebrations of Feria Juniana or the multi-cultural party that is the National Garifuna Festival. And for a true fiesta, join over 250,000 Hondurans in La Ceiba for a full-on, week-long street party.
