Things to do in Honduras

With its Caribbean-infused culture, world-class dive and snorkel sites and wildlife refuges home to endangered species, Honduras presents a diverse range of activities for visitors.

The Mayan site of Copán with its grand citadel, imposing public squares and subterranean tunnels is a masterpiece of ancient planning. In Pico Bonito National Park walking trails through lush forest teeming with tropical birds and monkeys lead to tumbling waterfalls and sweeping views. While at Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge you’ll ride an old railway before negotiating the mangroves by canoe or boat in search of manatees, monkeys and alligators.
