Copan Ruinas and Roatan are becoming well known to savvy travelers the world over, but by and large the rest of Honduras remains relatively unexplored. With so many sights to see, things to experience, and places to explore, the country remains one of the world’s best kept secrets.
In Honduras you can reconnect with authentic travel experiences, enhanced through meeting and interacting with locals. The small towns and villages of rural Honduras still honor traditions, while many offer access to Wi-Fi in the town square. The country is moving at Internet speed, and yet at moments it can still feel like time stands still.
Seven distinct ethnic groups reside in a geographically small, but culturally diverse country. The Bay Islands move to a Caribbean beat; while on the North Coast the Garifuna lend a laid-back feel to the region. Coffee farmers and ranchers populate the fertile valleys in the west, and the Lenca Highlands are all about small towns nestled in rugged mountains.
Some of the best coffee in the world grows in Honduras; it's one of the country’s most important industries. There’s a distinct pride among the families who grow & process coffee and they're happy to share it with you.
Hondurans are justifiably proud of their country and naturally inclined to be hospitable. Over and over, visitors rave about the warmth of the welcome and the authenticity of the interactions they experience during their trip.

If you are interested in adventure travel, with 91 national protected areas covering a wide diversity of ecosystems - coral reefs to cloud forest peaks - Honduras has it all. The diversity of forest alone is stunning: coastal mangrove forest give way to tropical rain forests that lead to tropical dry forests and pine-oak forests, all the way up to cloud forests on the mountain tops.
Such diversity in a relatively small area means that visitors can experience a multitude of ecosystems over the course of a single trip; ideal for a birding trip.
Along the way, an abundance of wildlife – howler monkeys, Scarlet Macaws, agouti, basilisk lizards, Resplendent Quetzals, Lovely Cotingas, capuchin monkeys, manatees, and oscelots to name a few - is just waiting to be spotted by keen eyes. This is nature at its most wild.
