About Honduras

Honduras is a stunningly beautiful country, with marvelous beaches, lush green mountains, the idyllic Bay Islands, and the ancient Mayan city of Copan - just to scratch the surface.

Honduras is located in Central America bordered by Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Most visitors arrive by air. American and Continental Airlines have regular flights to Tegucigalpa (the capital) and San Pedro Sula (the commercial center) as well as TACA and Lacsa Airlines.

Whether you are exploring the Mayan ruins, diving in the Bay Islands or relaxing on the North Coast at Tela or La Ceiba, there are great places to visit and things to do. The people of Honduras are very friendly and visitors and travellers are most welcome. If you have a spirit of adventure, why not make Honduras your next vacation spot?


Sights and Side Trips ...

Honduras has a lot to offer everyone whatever your interests. Number one destination is the Bay Islands where SCUBA Diving, snorkeling and water sports are the order of the day.

Second are the mystical Mayan Ruins of Copan, located in the mountains of western Honduras near the Guatemalan border. At the very minimum this should be an overnight tour with most travellers departing from San Pedro Sula. A must see if you come to Honduras.

Third most visited destination is Honduras' North Coast cities of Tela, La Ceiba and Trujillo. Beautiful beaches, National Parks, birding, white water rafting and just a laid back life style are just a part of the choices.



Places to Visit...

The Bay Islands

The Bay Islands of Honduras offer a very different world from that of mainland Honduras. The Islands history, which includes many disputes between the Spaniards and the British during colonial times, with the British actually controlling the islands most of the time, have given the islands a unique heritage. There are several islands, with the two larger ones being the most popular with tourists: Roatan and Guanaja. English is widely spoken in the Islands.

Roatan

Roatan is the largest island, with the most infrastructure and the most developed for tourism. It is a long, thin island, measuring almost 40 miles in length and with a total land mass of 49 square miles. The island has a mountainous backbone and is totally surrounded by coral reefs, offering superb diving.


Guanaja

The tallest of the islands, Guanaja has become the most elite-oriented, with many of the better hotels on the Islands located here. Guanaja is a unique island, as it does not have any roads, and the largest community, known as Bonaca is not even on the island itself, but on a small cay a short distance from Guanaja. Guanaja has a paved runway as an airport, and is forested with the unique Caribbean pine that distinguishes it very much from its sister islands.

Christopher Columbus is reputed to have landed here on his fourth and last voyage to the "Indies" and actually encountered canoes with Paya Indians. He also mentioned the excellent quality of the fresh water that he found on the Island, saying " he had never tasted sweeter water of better quality"
