Overview & Highlights

Highlights of Honduras, emerging as a visitor's destination: forest-shrouded Mayan temples at Copán, a world-class jungle  ecolodge and unsullied Roatán Island, offering beach time and world-class diving. 

This low-key, little visited country shelters some of the top highlights for visitors in the region and here you will get to see them all: the intricate carvings at one of the Mayan Empire’s best preserved archaeological sites, Copán; the much lauded Lodge and Spa at Pico Bonito, set in a wildly biodiverse jungle-filled national park, and the sun-baked island Roatán, which hosts some of the best dive sites in the world.   

A holiday to Honduras may not immediately spring to mind when you are considering travelling to Central America, even though it is the largest country there. The unassuming population of this relatively undeveloped country is friendly and welcoming (on this nature and culture-focused holiday you will be avoiding some of the trickier cites) and you’ll enjoy a country with a relaxed, unhurried feel, your experiences unbothered by the presence of hordes of tourists.  You’ll be delighted to have uncovered a niche destination, quietly upgrading its infrastructure and slowly revealing its charms.

Our Expert's Opinion

As experts in Latin America, we have always strived to shed light on parts of the region that are often overlooked by travellers. Despite its troubled history, Honduras boasts a wealth of natural and cultural highlights that remain unspoiled due to being less visited. At Journey Latin America, we take pride in putting Honduras back on the tourist map, and this unique signature itinerary is perfect for adventure seekers, whether it involves discovering Mayan history at Copán ruins or diving in the crystal-clear waters of the Bay Islands.
