Honduras in Central America has a reputation for high crime and until recently considerable unrest, but it has in recent years become a popular holiday destination and for good cause.

This is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. The Rio Plantana biosphere reserve is home to indigenous people, contains Mayan ruins and is home to jaguar, giant anteaters and sloths. Hike in a cloud forest that reaches altitudes of almost ten thousand feet, or visit a butterfly garden. Zip line above the trees in the rain forests or go white water rafting in the mighty rivers.

Floating as it does in the world’s second largest coral reef. The Bay Islands offer some of the best diving sites in Central America. Here you can swim with dolphins and watch the whale sharks at play or just soak in the sun on palm-fringed white Caribbean beaches.


Honduras also boasts some of the finest remains of ancient Mayan civilisations. Take a couple of days out to explore the Copan ruins. It is a full and beautifully built city which features underground tunnels which are a must to visit. A visit to Honduras is inexpensive and you’ll be greeted by a vibrant people, unspoilt wilderness areas and charming cities filled with colonial architecture.
