Central America - Honduras (Chapter)
This is the Honduras chapter from Lonely Planet's Central America guidebook.
Travellers are thin on the ground in Honduras following the exile of former President Manuel Zelaya. But for the intrepid adventurer, Honduras' natural beauty remains. Jungle-hop through wild Mosquito Coast, bathe in the crystalline waters of tranquil Utila and Roatán and bird-watch in verdant cloud forests with barely a soul to share it all with.
- immerse yourself in the Bay Islands, a diver's paradise both for its prices and its rich underwater world
- explore Gracias, the sleepy former capital of South America, now a cobblestoned refuge of colonial days gone by
- visit Copán Ruinas to marvel at intricate stone carvings and epic ancient structures tracing back to an extraordinary Maya empire
- restaurants & accommodations
