Honduras holidays : introduction
We have current Honduras articles here: News
The beautiful country of Honduras is particularly good for diving and snorkelling. The three Bay Islands, off the Caribbean coast, have a well-earned reputation for sparkling clear water, white bays and coral reefs - and colourful history as a one-time haunt of pirates. The centre of Honduras is mountainous, with wildlife-rich cloud forest and spectacular waterfalls.
Bordering Guatemala and tiny El Salvador to the west and Nicaragua to the east, Honduras is a friendly country with both Pacific and Caribbean coast. Near the Guatemalan border, the ancient Maya site of Copán is famous for its intricate stone carvings.
Climate and when to go
The dry season is from December to May. Even during the wetter months showers are usually short and sharp and merely serve to freshen the air. The hottest months are July and August.
“You put together such a fabulous itinerary for us where we had just the right amount of exploring the culture and landscapes as well as the right amount of R & R in the beautiful guesthouses. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.” - JW
“Thank you for your part in making it all happen for us in the way we wanted - that is, to learn more about the four countries we visited, to experience their cultures, to marvel at their inheritance from ancient civilisations, to admire their landscapes, to wander the streets of some great cities and to reacquaint ourselves with some Central American wildlife. We have an overriding impression of friendly, welcoming people, helpful drivers and good guides.” - LG
