About Author John Dupuis

It’s always hard to write about yourself…  So let me be brief. The name is John Dupuis.  I was born and raised in Mexico City. But Honduras is my home since 1993.  I lived in Copan Ruinas back when I first got to Honduras, and met my lovely wife, Soledad. We have three sons. I have four sons prior to this relationship, so that makes for a total of 7 boys, no girls…

My first endeavor in Honduras was to create a small booklet. I  called it “Copan Tips”. It became very popular with the tourism community and quickly quickly evolved into Honduras tips. I successfully managed it for over 15 years, and then sold to Grupo OPSA in 2010. OPSA also publishes the two leading newspapers in Honduras: La Prensa and El Heraldo. This endeavor allowed me to travel regularly throughout the entire territory of Honduras. It was fun discovering the different destinations. I also established a relationship with the different stakeholders in the travel business throughout Honduras.

I settled in the Cangrejal River Valley, where I run a small bed and breakfast together with my wife, Soledad. Our bed and breakfast is slowly becoming a successful business despite difficult times. Our bed & breakfast, La Villa de Soledad B&B is located in the lovely Cangrejal River Valley.

In an effort to share with other travelers and explorers the uniqueness and friendliness of Honduras as a travel destination, I have set out in a new project. Honduras Travel to create an online resource that is up to date and useful to the traveler. I intend to make in become “the” Travel Blog for Honduras. After living so many years in Honduras, I am fully aware that Honduras is not the dangerous murder capital of the World that the international press likes to portray it as. Feel free to write to me at with suggestions and / or corrections to keep this resource up to date. Enjoy your travels throughout Honduras!
