More and more, when in Honduras you hear about the Lenca Ethnic group. But who are the Lenca people? Where do they live? How many of them are there? As you probably already know, there is a region in Western Honduras we call the Lenca Route or Lenca Trail. As far as tourism in concerned, […]

These days, everybody wants to check a travel advisory or warning before they start planning their trips. There are no safe countries or dangerous countries to travel to. More that ever before, relying on your “common sense” is vital! Many travelers forget to pack that common sense with them before leaving on a vacation. This can be a dangerous mistake!
These last days I have been enjoying absolutely perfect weather in Honduras. When I got up yesterday morning, I decided I had to write a post about how the best time of the year to visit Honduras is now. We have had cool sunny days that are ideal for hiking, diving and exploring.
San Pedro Sula has a new property that is ideal for the business person that is looking for a hotel. I am talking about the new Hyatt Place Hotel in San Pedro Sula. The property is set in the heart of the “zona viva” in this bustling modern city.
In 1860, a group of Islanders requested the assistance of William Walker to help them resist the transfer of the Bay Islands from the UK to Honduras.

If you do visit or stay downtown, you will need to find a place to eat. You will find a variety of downtown restaurants in San Pedro Sula. These of course include all the franchises, such as Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s etc. However, if interested in a local experience, here are my recommendations for you.
Ok, I accept the fact that I got curious about this one! Was there a Miskito Coast Protectorate flag? It seemed only logical that if the Bay Islands Colony had a flag under British Rule, that the Miskito coast would have a flag too! So, I made an investigation to see if there was a Miskito Coast Protectorate Flag. And guess what? There was one indeed!
I’ve been on the road lately… I went to Trujillo on Tuesday and came back to La Ceiba on Wednesday. Today I am in San Pedro Sula and hope to be back home tonight. Last week, I was in the Bay Islands, Utila and Roatan. The week before that I was in Tegucigalpa and then drove to the south coast, to the city of Choluteca.
