Reasons to Visit
If you are looking for first class diving, or the perfect place to learn to dive, it doesn’t get much better than the Bay Islands. The spectacular coral reefs teem with sealife and there are enough prime dive sites to keep even the most experienced diver happy.
Visit the Maya ruins of Copán situated amidst a tranquil forest along the Copán river. Learn about the Mayan civilisation and explore the pyramids, plazas and famous Hieroglyphic Staircase.
Explore the Rio Plátano biosphere at La Mosquitia, where monkeys, toucans and jaguars roam the forests. A World Heritage site, the reserve has a number of endangered species.
Due to its developing infrastructure, Honduras is a largely underestimated country and thus is far less visited than others in Central America, which only adds to its appeal for those looking for something different. Visitors are rewarded with lush landscapes, wild national parks and unique accommodation.
Rafting the Cangrejal River near La Ceiba is fantastic. Offering grades II and III, this river is suitable for all levels and rafting through the rainforest with toucans flying over head and the sounds of howler monkeys in the distance just adds to the experience.
Around Roatan there is some wonderful snorkelling to be had and the calm waters make this an ideal spot for even the most novice of snorkellers. You can arrange organised trips or just hire a snorkel and mask and head off independently.

The wildlife refuge is situated 33kms from La Ceiba, which is home to many endangered animal species, found within the many mangrove canals proceeding from the rivers Cuero and Salado. There is a mixture of fresh and salt water here as the reserve is right at the edge of the ocean.
From La Union, you take a ride on the old railway to reach the refuge and then by boat or canoe you will explore the mangrove lagoons. Manatees, monkeys, alligators and a variety of birds are all part of the highlights of this protected and diverse habitat.
