Festivaly "There are other popular fairs in Copán Ruinas (15 to 20 March), Tela (13 June), Trujillo (24 June), San Pedro Sula (last week in June) and Danlí (last weekend in August"
La Tigra National Park, northeast of the city, is one of the most beautiful places in Honduras. Located at an altitude of 2270m (7446ft), the pristine 7482-hectare (18,480-acre) park preserves a lush cloud forest that is home to ocelots, pumas, monkeys and quetzal.
Tela is many travelers' favorite Honduran Caribbean beach town. It's a small, quiet place, with superb seafood, several good places to stay and some of the most beautiful beaches on the northern coast. It's basically a place for relaxing and enjoying the simple life. The US$25 million Tela Bay Development Project plans to boost tourism in the area, so see the place while it's still unspoilt and quiet. The best beach is east of the town, in front of the Hotel Villas Telamar. It has pale, powdery sand and a shady grove of coconut trees.
The small town of Trujillo has played an important role in Honduran history. It sits on the wide arc of the Bahía de Trujillo and is famed for its lovely beaches, coconut palms and gentle seas. Though it has a reputation as one of the country's best Caribbean beach towns, it's not usually full of tourists, except during the annual festival in late June. Apart from the attractions of the beach, there is a 17th-century fortress, the grave of William Walker and a Museo Arqueológico. To the west of the town is the Barrio Cristales, where the Garífuna people live; this is the place to go for music, dancing and revelry.
Off the Beaten Track
El Tigre - high volcanic island This 783m (2568ft) high volcanic island in the Golfo de Fonseca is home to the quiet fishing village of Amapala, a couple of decent beaches and some good walks. Apart from the tranquility, the other major drawcards are the good views and the seafood. Small boats and a car ferry access the island from Coyolito.
Mosquitia - national park
This vast, inaccessible region in northeastern Honduras is inhabited by small groups of Miskito, Paya and Sumo Indians. Travelers are attracted by the pristine wilderness and abundant wildlife, including manatees, monkeys, alligators and fine bird life. Infrastructure is nonexistent, so be prepared to rough it, carry in food supplies and eat with local families. Attractions include the magnificent Río Plátano Nature Reserve and boat trips on the rivers and lagoons.
For the best walks, try Parque Nacional Celaque,
45km (28mi) southeast of Santa Rosa de Copán. It contains the country's highest peak, a lush cloud forest, the headwaters of 10 rivers and a majestic waterfall. There are also vertical cliffs for expert mountain climbers. Parque Nacional Pico Bonito, a few km south of La Ceiba, has trails around the fringes of the 500 sq km (195 sq mi) unexplored reserve and a challenging peak for mountaineers.
La Ceiba's Tropical Butterfly Farm and Gardens
by Robert Gallardo
The newest attraction is not just a place to stop by and visit, but a destination in itself. Here you can lose yourself amidst the brillant hues of the hundreds of live butterflies on display, relax in a swimming hole, take a stroll through the jungle, birdwatch and much more. The farm, which is located at the edge of Pico Bonito National Park, encompasses 50 acres and is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Upon arrival one receives a guided tour through the butterfly farm. Inside the 2400 square foot Butterfly House, one can take pictures of the many varieties of butterflies such as "Owls", Morphos and "longwings" as they feed. One can also rest by the waterfall or stream on a bench amongst tropical plants such as orchids, passion vines and caladiums.
