HONDURAS is a country in Central America with a Pacific coastline only about 70 miles long compared to a 400 mile shoreline in the Caribbean. Facilities for yachts have generally improved as more cruising boats visit. Honduras is a vibrant country, brimming with clear turquoise waters, pristine beaches, lush jungles, breathtaking mountains, challenging rivers, and fascinating ancient ruins.
Vast expanses of nature are to be found everywhere. Ecotours, SCUBA diving, river rafting, and mountain treks are what Honduras is known for today. Honduras is enjoying a boom in popularity, as the rich and famous have found a place where they can still travel unknown.
First time visitors to Honduras are amazed by the warmth of Honduran hospitality. Returning travellers have never forgotten it. Archaeologists have demonstrated that Honduras had a rich, multi-ethnic prehistory; an important part was the Mayan presence around the city of Copán in western Honduras, near the Guatemalan border.
