Honduras Tourism

Honduras – a land not frequented by the tourist for reasons of its tumultuous political upheavals as also the devastation caused by Hurricane Mitch in 1998 – is slowly limping back to normal. The lush rainforests, the alpine ridges and charming little coastal towns all beckon the traveller to come and explore this land. Its rich cultural heritage found in the spectacular Mayan ruins of Copan are second only to Chichen Itza in Mexico.

The Banana Republic of yesterday, today attracts a large amount of foreign investment but unfortunately this hasn’t made a substantial difference to the average Honduran. Honduras still is the poorest country in Central America, but for the intrepid traveller, this is uncharted territory waiting to be mapped.

Honduras grows and exports a lot of bananas…. Guess this is the reason that it has got its nickname ‘Banana Republic’!

Ever heard of Lluvia de Peces (Rain of Fishes) in Honduras? A unique phenomenon for centuries in which hundreds of living fish are found on the ground after heavy rains for 2 to 3 hours accompanied with lightning, thunder and strong winds. The fish are not sea water fish, have eyes, are not dead and are not found anywhere else in the area. Isn’t it strange?
