Honduras is one of the least-explored countries in Central America with a small population of around seven million, despite being one of the largest Central American nations.However a holiday in Honduras will surprise you with world-class diving, impressive Mayan ruins, spectacular national parks and stunning natural scenery both in its highlands and on the coast.
Although sparsely populated, Honduras is a fascinating mix of mainly Mayan communities in the highlands and Garifuna along the coast and in the islands.
One of the most popular Mayan sites in Central America is to be found here at Copan, almost on the border with Guatemala.
Further north towards the coast at La Ceiba is the celebrated Pico Bonito National Park, named after the mountain whose peak dominates the area.
Lying just off this north coast are the beautiful Bay Islands, the main island to stay on being Roatan, where the diving is some of the best in the Caribbean and also provides some of the best value.
For those who want to seek out emerging destinations off the beaten track, there are several areas starting to develop simple facilities for tourists, which we can recommend. These include Utila in the Bay Islands, Lake Yojoa, Comayagua and the dense rainforest of the Mosquitia coast in Gracias a Dios district.
