"A nice farewell to Honduras" Omoa by hugolorenzetti

Omoa Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 49 photos

How wrong we were

We thought we would get some rest while waiting for the departure of the lancha ro Belize. We did rest. A bit.

Omoa is a great seaside town. Since everyone else is in the Bay Islands or in Tela, Trujillo and such, the city is more available for residents (prices are better, too). The man beach on a little bay is full of restaurants and hotels, and it bears the local movement of people. Weekends are great, because everything gets lively with Honduran families taking their weekend baths.

There is also an almost deserted beach a few metres from the main point. But if you're here to wait for your boat, which is definitely more agreeable than staying in Puerto Cortés, you will have to bother leaving a lot earlier to get your passport stamped. But a lot earlier means, I don't now, an hour and a half. Not too much, right?
