Welcome to THE Honduras Destination Guide!

Central America is a new travel destination for most world travelers. In Central America, two countries that have done a good job at marketing themselves as destinations: Costa Rica and Guatemala. The other three destinations: El Salvador, Nicaragua and Honduras are newcomers as destinations. One thing that these three countries share is the lack of available up to date information online.

I have lived in Honduras for almost 25 years, working in the travel industry all that time. I know just how hard it is to get good up to date information about travel in Honduras. The net is full of old stories. Most are about bad news, and there are few web sites that show the good side of the coin.

The hondurastravel.com Mission

Hondurastravel.com seeks to provide would be travelers to Honduras with up to date information.  Our mission is to provide reliable up to date travel information. Our web page has two distinct sections:

The first is an Online Honduras Destination Guide. We work hard to offer our readers information on the different resources available for them throughout Honduras. Where to stay, what to eat, how to get there and what to do once they are there. I want to share the best of Honduras with you!

Our second section is a Honduras travel blog. Here I share information on my travels throughout Honduras. Although Honduras is a small country, it has many attractions that make it popular with travelers. Best of all is the fact that they are quite unknown and not at all busy.

Honduras is best known for the Bay Islands and the Mayan Archaeological site at Copan Ruinas. Yet the country offers much more.  Destinations like Atlantida, are often overlooked. Atlantida includes La Ceiba, Tela and the Cangrejal River Valley. The same is true with the Lenca Route in Western Honduras. This route connects the cities of Siguatepeque, La Esperanza, Gracias and Santa Rosa de Copan.

If you do not find the information that you are looking for, register in our contact form and send us a message. We will go out of way to find the info you are looking for and get it back to you!

Please do leave a comment in our blog posts or destination guide pages. It helps us provide better information about Honduras. Your comments are sure to be useful to other travelers.

    Hi John

    great blog. Nice to see someone with positive news about Honduras.

    I’m from Canada and my wife and I are the new owners of Las Cascadas Lodge. Ryan is still managing the hotel. We hope to build up our supply of cabins in the next few years and we will let you know of any changes. We also plan to go off grid as much as possible too. We have 5 waterfalls on the property (100 acres of private rain forest) that are capable of generating our electricity. (stay tuned).

    With that in mind our air conditioners have been turned off and removed. We can’t call ourselves eco-friendly and try to cool the outdoors too.

    We are also one of the more expensive hotels in the Cangregal river valley (as you have stated) but we are all-inclusive. (it would be nice if you could add that).

    Ryan runs one of his canyoning tours right on our property down our private waterfalls and river. Our guests don’t have to get in a car to drive anywhere and when their tour ends they are back at the lodge. A pretty sweet deal.

    Any other questions please drop me a line. I would be happy to answer. I am still based in Canada for a few more years but travel back and forth frequently.

    Love your blog. Very positive and informative!
    I have a friend who is local in Honduras. I’ve been thinking about a visit for the first time, from the US in May. What should I do to be prepared for traveling to Honduras? Anything I need to know before flying there? What should I expect?

    What is the best real estate agent for Canadians to buy a house in the Bay Islands?

      There are many good reputable real estate agents in the Bay Islands. I would probably start with REMAX in Roatan. Larry Schlesinger is a fully certified real estate agent in the USA and does everything by the book.
