Backpackers love the lush jungles of Honduras’s western mountain range, while the underwater divers and cruise types typically head to the beautiful beaches of the Bay Islands for a trip to the second-largest barrier reef system in the world. The Mayan ruins of Copan in the west are internationally recognized architectural wonders, and the capital of Tegucigalpa is a modernized city full of bustle, while Omoa offers colonial history and lush jungle mountain adventures.
Exploring it all, you have your options. Most Honduran islands use boats and water ferries as their main source of travel, while taxi and rental car are the preferred method of intra-city travel, though short flights are an options for some destinations as well. Spanish is the primary language spoken in Honduras, but in the beautiful Bay Islands you’ll find lots of English spoken. Whether on an island or the mainland, be sure to do your haggling before jumping into a taxi, and though the dollar is accepted, Lempira is the local currency and you’ll get more for your money should you pay with it.
