Honduras is located in the heart of Central America, surrounded by high tropical mountains. Due to the diversity of climate Honduras has rainforests, cloud forests, mangroves, savannas, mountain ranges with pine and oak trees and the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. With numerous plants and animal species living in different climates Honduras has been considered a biodiversity hot spot.

On the Northern Coast Honduras borders the Caribbean Sea with long stretches of beautiful beaches and warm weather. Beyond the beaches are the Bay Islands which are surrounded by the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. The reef system extends along the coast of four countries: Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras and is home to more than 65 species of stony coral, 350 species of mollusk and more than 500 species of fish.

Activity Details


Situated approximately 30 miles off the coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea lie Islas de las Bahai, better known as the Bay Islands. Stretching for 70 miles, consisting of seven islands and 50 small cayes, they are part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest living reef in the World. Roatan, Utila and Guanaja are the three islands mainly visited by tourist. These islands all have tropical warm water, year round good visibility and friendly people. With more than 300 identified fish species, vibrant corals, giant sponges and pelagic encounters with manta rays, sea turtles and whale sharks, the Bay Islands are a wonderful escape for divers, snorkelers and kayakers.


One of the finest Maya ceremonial sites can be found in Honduras in Copán. Impressive in detail and humbling in size these ruins are best known for intricately carved stelae, beautiful temples and the famed Hieroglyphic Staircase.

Honduras offers one of the most valuable tracts of primary tropical forests in Central America. Activities such as bird watching, hiking, white water rafting and romantic canopy dining under the stars can be arranged in this tropical rainforest. Pico Bonito National Park is only a few miles away from La Ceiba making it a convenient side trip.
