Home to the most beautiful coral reef, Honduras Caribbean coast is a spectacular place to do any kind of water sports such as diving, snorkelling, swimming, fishing and other activities. The island of Roatan is particularly beautiful, with great beaches, lovely accommodation and restaurants. Even if you are not the water type, Roatan is a great place to explore and relax. Other great islands are Cayos Cochinos and …. The Caribbean coast on the mainland has a few interesting places to visit such as Pico Bonito National park, a great place for wildlife watching, Tela, a small fishing developing village has the largest botanical gardens, the National Park of Jeannette Kawas and Punta Sal, all to be visited on day trips by boat. Also, Omoa is an interesting historical site with its fortress to protect from pirates in colonial times.
Inland, near to the Guatemalan border lies the pretty village of Copan Ruinas, home to one of the most beautiful Archaeological sites in the Mayan World. These ornate ruins are a must see whether you are into Archaeology or not, the art displayed that was sculptured over 1200 years ago is amazingly well preserved. Its museum is top class and always included in our tours. Specialist tours with Archaeologists can be arranged on demand.
Copan also is the birthplace of the Botanical gardens and Bird sanctuary of Macaw Mountain, who are responsible for the reintegration of the Scarlet Macaw in the valley of Copan. We recommend a couple of days in Copan Ruinas, to explore the valley taking a jeep ride to the thermal springs, finished off with a privately cooked dinner & wine. Copan has great opportunities for bird watching, canopy tours, coffee tours, horse riding and so on. From Copan, it is possible to visit Guatemala or El Salvador.
Another great destination is Lake Yojoa or the Panacam lodge if birdwatching is on your list. We are proud to say we have some of the best birdwatching guides in Central America.
