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.
Things to do
Our destination was a beach community with the name of Playa el Venado. This is a small community of about 37 families that are fully committed to conservation of the “Tortuga Golfina” a turtle that comes to the beaches within the Gulf of Fonseca to lay their eggs.
This week, three persons from different countries told me that I lived in Paradise. Yes you heard right: not one, not two but three different persons! That leads me to one conclusion: Paradise in Honduras does exist, and I happen to be fortunate enough to live in it!
The highest peaks in Honduras are the Cerro de las Minas or Celaque in Western Honduras. Santa Barbara in Central Honduras is the second highest peak. Pico Bonito in the Caribbean Coast is also in the top 5. You can plan a hike to the top of any of these peaks, but you will not be able to do it one day.
There are some unique souvenirs and handicrafts that you can find in Honduras. Today I will mention a group of women who produce a variety of embroidered products. These include cushions, bed spreads, purses, etc. Their themes are usually related to birds and animals you would find in a tropical rain forest.
Believe me, Grandma and Grandpa will absolutely love visiting the Macaw Mountain Bird Park. Young kids have an absolute blast in the park. They love to run up and down the trails, stop and see the birds and even play they are pirates by putting a big macaw on their shoulders.
