    Honduras

    Major Tourist Attractions: Copan, Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve, Virgin of Suyapa, Pico Bonito National Park, Celaque National Park

    Honduras is a magnet for divers with one of the largest coral reefs on the planet and diverse sea life.

    It's been a tough decade for Honduras. The news media has been stocked full of images of political turmoil in the Central American country for much of the past ten years. To be fair though, Honduras has never been the most stable place for a politician. Despite its political ineptitude, however, the country is ripe with travel opportunities.

    Today, most of Honduras' tourism infrastructure lays along the shores of the mainland in the Caribbean Sea. The islands of Utila and Roatan are magnets to divers. They sit just off shore from one of the largest chunks of the coral reef in the world. Both expert divers and newbies flock to Utilia Island in particular where dives are some of the cheapest anywhere on the planet. Moreover, the dives available are as diverse as the sea life.

    On the mainland, Inca ruins are the main attraction these days. Most visitors tend to steer clear of the major cities and instead focus on the lovely town of Copan and the impressive stone ruins and pyramids that lay scattered just outside of town.

    Sure, political negligence may be stunting the growth of tourism development in Honduras. However, a thrifty traveler would take it as a chance to visit a worthy destination with but a trickle of tourists.

    Things to do in Honduras:

    • Wander through the ancient ruins of Copan
    • Dive through some of the most bio-diverse coral reefs on the planet from the Island of Utila
    • Kayak the Rio Cangrejal
    • Dance to the beat of the drums of a Garifuna village on Roatan Island
    • Hike to Lago de Yojoa, Honduras' largest natural lake
    • Find a secluded beach on one of the many tiny islands on the Caribbean coast
