Honduras

Honduras is a poor country where tourism is still undeveloped. Good amenities can be found in cities like Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, and La Ceiba but elsewhere conditions can be primitive, especially in the rural areas. You can find good hotels even in small towns if you are willing to pay a bit more (Honduras is not really an expensive country). Nevertheless a visit is worthwhile, especially to the ancient Maya ruins in Copán, the colonial towns of Gracias and Comayagua and the fantastic Caribbean Coast.Honduras is Subtropical in lowlands, temperate in mountains.

 

The Honduran "Plato tipico" is the most famous lunch. It consist of rice, beef, fried beans (frijolitos), and fried bananas (tajaditas), and is delicious.  Other choices are tacos, baleadas, and enchiladas, inherited from the neighbor countries.
