The Perfect Town

Santa Lucia, Honduras is a 30 minute bus ride up the mountains from Tegucigalpa, but it is like another world. Tegucigalpa is crowded, busy, smoky, and loud. It has great energy and many nice, friendly people. Santa Lucia is calm, quiet, slowed down, cool, and the air is clean and crisp. Everyone there seems to have all the time in the world to get things done. No one is in a hurry. No one is rude. The people are, without exception, charming. The food is superior, and if one is tired of hostals, and $10 rooms (as I was) and wishes to splurge for $27 which includes breakfast, there is a great little place to stay called Brisas of Santa Lucia. Only one of the nights I stayed there was there any other guests. The hotel has six rooms. They have an exquisite back yard full of flowers and fountains, and fruit trees. There is a tranquil lake in the town and a pretty park around it.
