Like the rest of Central America, Honduras is undergoing major social and economic changes, so if there was ever a time to go, it is now! Blessed with pristine beaches, turquoise waters and dense rainforests, Honduras has always been an eco-tourist’s dream.
For those seeking to develop a greater understanding of Honduras’ history, the Copan ruins and the colonial town of Comayagua ought to be high on the list of attractions. During the period of Spanish colonial rule, Comayagua served as the capital of the Intendencia of Comayagua. As a result the town boasts a wealth of beautiful colonial architecture as well as the oldest clock in the Americas!
The west of the country hides one of Honduras’ greatest treasures, the Copan Ruins. A vast site that was once a lavish capital in the seventh century, it consists of some awe inspiring remains such as the Hieroglyphic Stairway. You could easily imagine yourself as Indiana Jones as you wander through the site surrounded by jungle on all sides with the howls of monkeys filling the air.
