You’ve probably heard about the bad boy in the Central American ‘hood. Even if you’ve just glanced at a headline, Honduras and trouble seem inextricably linked. But what’s the reality on the ground? Well, despite the country’s rep, the vast majority of travelers actually love their time here, for the nation is simply loaded with attractions: the fabled Bay Islands (a dive and party mecca), magical Maya ruins of Copán, seductive beauty of the Lenca highlands, wildlife-rich jungle reserves in Moskitia. It's also superb value for money: all the adventure sports that have put Costa Rica on the map are available here at backpacking rates. Honduran landscapes are extraordinary, its cultural sights compelling and its people waiting. Sure, take a little extra care, especially in the big cities...But make the move and discover Honduras for yourself.
