Tips to make your trip to Honduras easier and more pleasurable
As 2019 begins, we all have new years resolutions. I believe that one the most important New Years resolutions you can make is to travel. To help you make your 2019 Honduras Travel plans easier, I have put together a list of the towns that you should visit during 2019.
Looking for an authentic Honduras experience? Many travelers are searching for authentic experiences versus just visiting a site. A full, authentic experience will allow you develop empathy with the local communities. You will experience the lifestyle and daily activities that make out the everyday life of your hosts.
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!
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.
If you have some free time in Honduras and need to hook up to fast internet, swing by the Altara Business Center and Mall. You will be happy that you did! You will also see that San Pedro Sula is Central America’s Smart City!
Honduras has the best-preserved mangrove forests in the Pacific coast of Central America. These are all within the Gulf of Fonseca that Honduras shares with Nicaragua and El Salvador. Our tour started from Playa El Venado, a small community in the municipality of Marcovia, within the department of Choluteca.
It turns out they have a total of 4 rooms with two queen beds, private bathroom, TV and air conditioning. In addition, they have a dorm facility without air conditioning, but with fans. The lodge goes by the name of Cabañas Mar del Pacifico. The shared bathroom facilities at the dorm could use some upgrading, but they have both toilets and showers.
Most anyone who has been to Copan Ruinas in the last few years complains about the highway. I was just there for the weekend and am happy to provide the following Copan Ruinas highway update. I drove from La Ceiba to Copan Ruinas last Friday and just got back home a couple of hours ago.

Honduras is a set up as a Central Republic. Thus, it has departments instead of states. The biggest difference is perhaps that as departments, the population does not elect its governors. As a matter of fact, although governors in Honduras are named directly by the president, they do not have any real authority.
