In Honduras, there is a saying, which does indeed cause some humor amongst Hondurans – that is: “el Honduras de aqui y el Honduras de alla.” The Honduras over here and the Honduras over there. Now, why such a saying? It is owed mostly to the grand differences one notes between life, people and ambience […]
I am happy to announce that as far as we have learned from a trusted source, that Honduras borders will reopen this week! I must confess that I was not aware that Guatemala and El Salvador have not yet opened their airports. Because they are still in a lockdown, their borders have remained closed.
All of us, regardless of whether our work is related to tourism or not have been asking ourselves when this will happen. According to a decree issued by the Minister of Tourism, Nicole Marrder, Honduras Tourism Reopens! Of course, there are some caveats to this statement, but it seems like it is really happening.

I wish I could say that my good news from the Cangrejal River Valley is that we are open again. Not quite, but most hotels are working on it and complying with the bio security protocols. These are meant to keep us safe as well as all our guests. Not trying to put us before […]
Many would wonder why it is that I choose to make my life in Honduras. A nation wrongly and unacceptably famed as a “murder capital of the world” (where I personally have never even seen a catfight), a poverty-stricken, corrupt hell-hole with nothing good to offer and no future.
This is a difficult question to answer! As a rule, most businesses in Honduras are ready to receive international tourists. However, the government has not yet made its mind up about when they will allow for this to happen. Although the government of Honduras took early action and closed its borders and declared a curfew […]
There is no doubt that the yearly Carnival in La Ceiba, is one of the most popular events in Honduras. This even includes Central America. This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic the La Ceiba Carnival was cancelled. This is a blow to the economy of the city, and to the possibility of entertainment for […]
