"Worthy of Many Returns!" Top 5 Page for this destination Honduras by epicult

Honduras Travel Guide: 1,511 reviews and 4,263 photos

Honduras is the cheapest (and one of the best) places in the world to dive and is prime Whale Shark territory come late February and March. It also boasts the largest untouched swath of jungle in Central America. I highly recommend it for its people, excellent food, diving, jungle, and of course the excellent value it offers for your $$$.

The general vibe in Honduras is very relaxed, there are very few 5-star travelers and, due to lack of infastructure, there probably won't be for quite some time. Honduras doesn't fit the mold for travelers seeking 'creature comforts'.

If you're a trekking/diving fanatic looking for the ultimate in adventure travel, Honduras is THE place to check out!!! I've had the pleasure of visiting twice and have spent a total of 5 weeks there. I'll likely continue to travel to Honduras (on a yearly basis) for the excellent & inexpensive diving, if not for all the other wonders this country has to offer.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nature Galore
  • Cons:Not Many
  • In a nutshell:If you enjoy jungle, adventure and diving, this is your dream come true

    Famikly heading out to Honduras in June (3 kids between 9 and 13). Do you think Rio Platano would be a good for kids too? We are renting a beach villa on Roatan for a week and would like to get some other experiences--culture seeking and rainforest.

    Loved Copan Ruinas & even San Pedro Sula. Was going to Utila when heavy rain forecast for a week had me leave for Nicaragua directly. Very useful page, I hope to go back! Ciao Te!

    ....about Roatan.....you probably only stayed on the over-crowded , cruise-ship visited West end of the island, if you want to see the best of Roatan, go further east.....it's still possible to leave civilization behind and see the "real Roatan".

    Hola Te! Thank you for your comments about Honduras, really Bay Islands (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja) is a paradise... and my country has more than that! Saludos.
