With Belize and Guatemala to the north, El Salvador and Nicaragua to the south, Honduras, a small Central American country, is a real gem for those seeking a change of scenery. Between tropical jungle populated by a singular fauna and Caribbean coasts of sumptuous white sand with some of the most popular diving spots in the world, the land of the Enca and Maya peoples, Mesoamerican ethnic groups present here since pre-Columbian times, also shelters some sensational architectural and archaeological remains, with the sites of Copán and the Roatán Islands in mind. The Honduran tourist guide offers some suggestions for exploring this unique destination, which continues to attract new travellers, particularly those attracted by ecotourism, and which is slowly but surely developing new hotel infrastructure. Between human encounters, exceptional natural sites, Mayan heritage, cigar culture and the production of one of the best rums in the world, Honduras is one of those regions of the world where adventure is still allowed

What to visit Honduras?

When to go to Honduras?

When to go to Honduras? This small Central American country has the highest number of visitors during the summer holidays in Europe, in July and August, but also during the Christmas holidays and in January and February, which are the months of school and university holidays. It must be said that the best time to travel to Honduras is the dry season, which runs from November to April. The climate is very pleasant, even very hot on the Pacific side! The Semana Santa period (week before the Easter weekend) is a time of high tourist attendance and, as in January-February, hotel rates increase. From May to October, the rainy season is not necessarily to be avoided either, showers do not generally last more than a few hours, except perhaps from mid-September to the end of October (rainfall is then abundant). In the end, when it comes to the question of when to go to Honduras, there is no wrong answer

How to go to Honduras? Our advice & tips

  • Organised trips
  • Going alone
  • Moving around

Until recently, Honduras was not very popular with travellers, but it is increasingly opening up to tourism. There are therefore a few agencies, generally accustomed to working at the same time with Nicaragua and El Salvador (and Central America as a whole), offering organised stays including flight, accommodation and access to the main tourist attractions.

To get to Honduras by your own means, all you need is a plane ticket (about €700-900 per round trip from Europe) and a little advance planning of the tour you want to take, so that you can book accommodation and entrance tickets for the desired tourist attractions. On the security side, Honduras does not have a good reputation and yet is increasingly safe. Avoid walking alone at night in the capital and everything will be fine.

If you have little time, domestic flights are not very expensive, as the San Pedro Sula/Tegucigalpa or Tegucigalpa/La Ceiba routes are quite popular. Flying is also an excellent way to reach the islands of the Bay or Moskitia. It will also be possible to use the bus, which is preferable to the rental car, and in cities, taxis are a cheap and safe means of transport. Cyclists will also be able to enjoy themselves on Honduras' low-traffic roads.
