Welcome to Southern Honduras & Isla del Tigre

While it's a much-traveled region (the Interamericana crosses through Honduras here), there's little of interest to travelers – except perhaps Isla del Tigre, which has some charm.

Isla del Tigre is an inactive volcanic island off the southern coast of Honduras, with a highest point of 783m. It's a dramatic place covered in thick forest and with some decent beaches that attract droves of locals but very few foreigners.

Its main town is Amapala, a scruffy fishing village with picturesque, crumbling clapboard architecture. Black-sand Playa Negra, in the north of the island, is arguably the island's best beach, though there are several other totally undeveloped stretches elsewhere here.
