Honduras is in Central America (between North and South Americancontinents). The country lies between the Caribbean Sea and thePacific Ocean and is bordered by Nicaragua, El S…alvador, andGuatemala. Geographically it is 15 00 N, 86 30 W on the world map.
Honduras is now famous for it's beautiful white sand and turquoise beaches, especially the parisidiac Bay Islands. These are inside the mesoamerican barrier reef system; the s…econd largest in the world. Roatan, the largest of the three major islands, has become one of the hottest destinations in the Caribbean. Real estate has it going on it's side. The location of Roatan is ideal given that it is out of the hurricane zone. On the mainland Honduras also boasts an extensive (unmatched in central America) coast of white sandy beaches. There are impressive national parks where people can get in touch with nature and waterfalls in the midst of tropical rain forests wich have interesting flora and founa and sometimes in the midst of dusk cold clouds. Very nice! The most important towns are San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa. There is plenty of nightlife, alot of shopping, and alot of gastronomy to enjoy in these cities. You can also chill at any of the American fast food franchises widely available in Honduras. You can go rafting at pico bonito in La Ceiba or you can discover the mystery of Mayan civilization at an impressive museum at Copan. You can visit the fresh and mountainous capital and visit the old presidential house, the Museum of National Identity or the Chiminike Museum (For sure you won't be dissappointed with any of these). You can visit the Cristo del Picacho or the La Leona parks and see the city view, or you can carefully wander around the central park and visit the beautiful catholic temples there, or you can go visit the Basilica de la Virgen de Suyapa, central America's largest cathedral and very arguably the nicest, and see the view from there while getting in touch with the country people that travel to ask the virgin for miracles. You can taste some of the best coffee in the world and smoke the finest cigars in the world.
Belize was formally known as British Honduras.. Belize
International flights come form all over the world especially to San Pedro Sula, the Tegucigalpa (the capital) and few too La Ceiba. Some Cruise lines stop on the Bay Islands …but no boat trips from any other country arrive as passengers. There are also Roads that connects us to our neighbors, Guatemala at the west, El Salvador at the Southwest, and Nicaragua at the Southeast. Buses are available ranging from cheap and not some comfortable buses too Decent price 1st class buses each day. In other words by flight or by car if your too far away. .are another option but they take too long
