Here is what she wrote about Honduras.
Accommodation:There are many hotels and B&B in the city. I stayed at Las Posadas B&B. This is just a house with a few rooms, so book in advance. The rooms are comfortable, clean and affordable. Alex Solorzano – the owner- is very kind and helpful. Address: Colonia Universidad, 21 Calle “A” #172/ 9-10 Avenida. San Pedro Sula. Email: email@example.com. Phone: 95101448
Tours: Everyone knows I am not big fan of tours, but since I didn’t have much time, I decided to contact Jungle Expedition (www.junglexpedition.org) to arrange some day excursions. This is a local company that promotes eco-tourism and specializes in mountain expeditions and adventure. I strongly recommend Jungle Expedition because you will leave Honduras with an experience. Juan Carlos Paz–kind of a young Honduran version of Indiana Jones!- knows the best spots -specially in the jungle- and has the contacts to make your visit to Honduras a memorable experience. He is passionate about his country and his enthusiasm is contagious. Beyond that, Juan Carlos will go the extra mile to tailor your trip depending on your interests. More than tour guides, Juan Carlos and his team are caring hosts. For more information, email them at Junglexpedition@honduras.com. Phone: (504) 33 92 53 29
Security: As you should be while visiting any big city, you should be cautious in San Pedro Sula- but again just preventions you should take while traveling to any metropolis you are not familiar with. Despite some warning about safety in Honduras, I found Honduran people extremely kind and welcoming, and I never felt threaten or uneasy.
Money:Honduras is relatively cheap, especially compared to other countries that promote eco-tourism in Central America. The local currency is Lempira, but dollars and mayor credit cards are widely accepted. There are plenty of ATMs
COPAN: I didn’t stay in the town, but I strongly recommend stopping byLa Casa de Todo Restaurantfor some great “Baleadas” (local food similar to tortillas) and natural juices. Also, when you visit the ruins ask for Antonio Rios or “Tony Rivers” as he calls himself. He is the oldest guide in Copan ruins. Fluent in different languages, this 73-year-old guide is not only knowledgeable, but also very entertaining. May not have the energy of the younger guides, but certainly has a lot of enthusiasm to share his stories!
This is a tentative itinerary for a four to five day trip to Honduras that combines relaxation, adventure and culture.
Day 1: Arrival San Pedro Sula
Day 2:Day excursion to Copan (Mayan Ruins) about 2 ½ and 3 hours away from the city. There is the option to stay in the old town of Copan for the night.
Day 3:Day excursion to National Park Cusuco where you can do waterfall rappelling, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, bird watching, and the list goes on! (There is also the option to stay overnight camping in the cloud forest-strongly recommended)
Day 4:Day at the beach. I went to a beach in the coastal city of Tela, which was very isolated and not so touristy, and where you can take a boat to Punta Sal National Park. Also, you can go to La Ceiba and from there take a morning ferry to the islands of Roatan or Utila.
