I want to take the time to thank all my followers and readers for a great 2017. This year, we have positioned ourselves as an important on line resource for up to date travel information about Honduras. When things got tough after the 2017 elections, we made an effort to provide you with up to date info and travel tips. Not sure what Honduras will see in 2018. By all prognosis, it will be a tough year. You can count on us to provide you with travel info to help you make the best of Honduras this coming year.
What Will Happen in Honduras 2018?
I expect that we will see an increase in flights within different destinations in Honduras. You can protest by blocking a road, but you can’t block the sky. Honduras 2018 will see better connectivity and better flights. I believe that the runways in Copan, Gracias and Tela will be better used by tourists visiting Honduras. This would be a great way of traveling between destinations. Especially from Roatan and Utila to Copan Ruinas. I can also envision flights between Tegucigalpa and Guatemala City to Copan Ruinas.
On another note, as the government of Honduras pursues it “Plan 2020” there should be some sustained investment in promoting Honduras abroad. One of the pillars of this development plan is tourism. There is no way that you will see increased visitors to the country without a strong investment in promoting Honduras.
The air connectivity with Europe seems to be well established with the Air Europa flight that began operations between San Pedro Sula and Madrid last year. I expect to see an increase in frequency on the flight, as it is operating at good occupancy rates.
