Honduras is a country in Central America that offers beautiful nature and amazing islands. On land, you can experience the beautiful nature by going to some of the many waterfalls, hot springs, banana plantations and going hiking and canopying if you are up for more adventure. If you are a coffee lover it is a must to try the high-quality coffee offered in Honduras. It is also evident to take advantage of the possibility to experience the process of making the coffee, now that you are in Honduras. Witness how it goes from a seed on a coffee plant, to be dried, roasted and grounded. Honduras has recently made a coffee tour in Copan and there are also possibilities to do tobacco tours. In Copan you can furthermore explore the old Maya ruins. There are many archaeological sites of Maya ruins spread over Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, but the one in Copan is best known for its elaborate sculptural style.
Among Honduras’ most famous islands are Roatan and Cayos Cochinos. Roatan is a great island for beach life, snorkeling, diving and exploring the island, many go there as a part of a cruise. Enjoy the white beaches, the diverse underwater life and if you feel like getting away from the crowd you can do shore excursions. Roatan is the largest and most developed island of the Bay islands in Honduras, so you will have more resorts, shopping malls, and better restaurants here than any other part of Honduras.
Cayos Cochinos is a picturesque place, offering white sandy beaches and the clearest water. It is made up of two small islands, which are home to the Garifuna fishermen. On Chachahuate beach you can see/meet a lot of them and get to know their culture. This is also an ideal place to dive and snorkel, with the opportunity to see a lot of interesting fish, sharks, turtles and even whale sharks.
