About HONDURAS:

 

Honduras is a vibrant country, brimming with clear turquoise waters, pristine beaches, lush jungles, breathtaking mountains, challenging rivers, and fascinating ancient ruins. It is also a diver's heaven.

 

Most visitors pass through its capital. Tegucigalpa welcomes visitors with a relaxed ambience. Just a couple of hours by bus, the mountain towns of Santa Lucia and Valle de Angeles with their slow pace, natural beauty and low profile tourism make it appealing to those who prefer getting off the beaten path.

 

Many travelers head straight to the western highlands and the Mayan ruins of Copan. The journey here may be broken into several stops along the way;Comayagua and Santa Rosa de Copan.

 

Heading towards the Caribbean you are almost certain to pass through Hondura's energetic second city, San Pedro Sula. Buses fan out from San Pedro to the north coast, with its pristines beaches, clear warm waters and endless sun. Tela, La Ceiba and Trujillo are all lively towns with a thriving nightlife, while the fishing village of Omoamoves at a slower pace.

 

Honduras is also home to a rather large Garifuna society, also known as the Black Caribs, you may glimpse at their different way of life when visiting nearby villages along the coast. Visit the coastal wetland reserve of Punta Sal near Tela and the spectacular mountainous reserve of Pico Bonito.

 

The biosphere reserve of the Rio Platano in Mosquitia is an uninhabited virgin tropical rain-forest, definitely off the beaten track. Finally the Bay Islands offers plenty of pristine beaches, world-class snorkeling and a rich cultural mix
