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!
I had a pleasant surprise when I came to visit the new Café San Rafael. In addition to the outstanding coffee and awesome artisan cheeses that you can find there, I found that they are also a wine bar in Copan Ruinas!

Some things don’t make sense. Yet if you see them again and again, maybe its you who can’t make sense of them. I get the same questions asked by travelers as they traverse the Honduras highways. Perhaps the most often asked question is why is everyone selling apples? Another common word you will see is “Pulperia”
Today , November 26th, is Honduras Election Day 2017. Over 6 million Honduran citizens can cast their vote today! I saw two different couples of tourists walk past the school were the voting was taking place. They did not seem intimidated in any way. The general atmosphere was safe and quiet.
