White beaches fringed by the world's second-largest barrier reef, jungle-covered mountains cut by raftable white-water rivers and home to an astounding number of bird species, exquisite Maya ruins, colonial, cobblestone villages, fresh seafood grilled on the beach… Honduras is privileged to have an extraordinary natural and cultural heritage: the world’s second largest coral reef offering some of the best Scuba Diving in the Carribean; Copan is considered the Athens of the ancient Mayan civilization; and there are beaches of singular beauty, exuberant scenery, colonial towns and living cultures throughout the country. Honduras offers enormous tourism potential, just waiting to be discovered.

La Ceiba

It’s the third largest city in Honduras. It has diverse attractions, and its people are not only one more: joy and rhythm welcome the traveler all year round. With unique attractions such as the Pico Bonito National Park, the Cangrejal River and the La Ceiba Carnival, the city promises a pleasant time full of fun and adventure.

Copán Ruinas

Copán is the most important tourist sites in Honduras. Birds, nature reserves, coffee plantations, hot springs, landscapes and country life complement the tourist appeal of an area where researchers continue to harvest findings, decipher stories and reconstruct more of the Mayan life in the extreme south of Mesoamerica. The architecture and sculpture of this political and ceremonial center of the classic period reach levels unbeknownst in other Mayan cities. You can see part of them in the museum and find another between trees and animals, or underground.

La Tigra National Park

This cloudy forest offers several ways to enjoy it, if you are interested in nature or are excited about adventure. Eight trails, with different degrees of difficulty, cover the ever-green and humid 240 km2 of the park, Tegucigalpa's main water source. Here lives the winged jewel of the isthmus, the quetzal, that you can find always in the mist, with sufficient patience and fortune.

You can also see toucans and hawks, felines like tigrillos, pumas and jaguarundi, and several kinds of amphibians and reptiles. The walls and roof of this biodiversity shelter are laid by pines, sweet gums and other species of trees, usually covered with mosses, and, on ground level, there are plants, including 6 kinds of endangered ferns. The impressive variety of insects, including many that have not been seen in the region, is another wealth that you can find in the park while looking for the colors of the quetzal, the blue butterfly or tigrillos, and discovering the dimension that the word “life” takes here.


The capital of Honduras is a city whose beginnings date from the end of the 16th century and are related to the discovery of silver veins in its vicinity. This colonial and mining past is still palpable in the historic quarter of the city. The Honduran capital is the political and administrative center of the country, today it is an interesting mixture of colonial buildings and modern constructions scattered throughout its mountainous geography.

San Pedro Sula

It’s the second largest city in the country, known as the "industrial capital of Honduras", since there are established the most important industrial companies in the country. In this municipality, more than 20 industrial branches generate a high percentage of the income of the population sampedrana. These include: Pharmaceutical Industry, Call Centers, soft drinks, beers, textiles, cotton, plastics, tobacco, cosmetics, serums, meat, concrete, soap and paint processors, among others. The city has restaurants and hotels of very good quality created to attend to a huge population of business men and women who visit it constantly, the main port of entry and exit of the tourists who arrive to Honduran lands. Another great advantage is its proximity to the main tourist destinations of the west and the Atlantic coast of the country.

Roatán Islands

They say the Caribbean kept a secret for many years. Colors in a rich and biodiverse reef, a landscape with turquoise blue horizon and mountains covered with tropical forest would be the signs on the map that lead to this natural Honduran treasure. Its islets and keys are the Caribbean's way of explaining paradise. The definite sign that you have arrived is that you walk by its waters seeing your footprints in the bottom of fine sand, almost ivory colored. Now, a million people a year find that map and follow it in direct planes, cruises and ferries, to find a treasure that does not fit in a coffer.
