About Honduras

The spectacular Central American nation of Honduras is on the rise as a brilliant destination of jungle-clad mountains, pristine white sands and the chance to explore the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Overcoming its dangerous reputation will take time and this is certainly an adventurous choice, but Honduras’ many attractions and ample charm have huge appeal. There are simple guesthouses aplenty, as well as some fantastic luxury hotels to suit a range of budgets, either on the mainland or on Honduras’ Caribbean islands. Our pick of the best places to stay in Honduras includes intimate beach hideaways, a remote divers’ paradise, and a secluded eco-lodge perfect for a romantic retreat.

Much of Honduras is covered in lush jungle, home to myriad species of flora and fauna — the hundreds of endemic species of birds are a particular draw — as well as some impressive Mayan ruins. Visit the ruined city of Copán to admire the Mayan civilisation’s amazing creations, hike along remote trails or try white-water rafting and mountain biking. There are cacao, coffee and cashew farms to see, as well as lively cultural events, including the Semanta Santa celebrations at Easter and the lively La Ceiba Carnival each May. Join thronging crowds to sing, dance, eat and celebrate on cobbled streets with live music and delicious food late into the night. For an insight into the region’s past, delve into the Museo para la Identidad Nacional in Tegucigalpa, or the Fortaleza Santa Bárbara de Trujillo, near the Caribbean coast. Honduras' complex history of colonisation has left a profound mark on its architecture, culture, food and national identity.

Travel to Roatán, the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras, for beautiful beaches and extraordinary diving on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. There are historic settlements — once home to indigenous tribes, pirates and traders — to visit, too, with bars and eateries serving superb fresh seafood.

For an even more remote escape, base yourself in striking Utila, blanketed in rainforest and beaches. The big draw, however, lies underwater. Spot the elusive whale shark and marvel at reefs teeming with marine life at some of the world’s most beautiful diving sites. Utila is the smallest of the Bay Islands and also hosts the annual Sunjam festival — the largest electronic music event in Honduras.

Whether you’re tempted by a diving holiday, a beach hotel set right on the sand, or a lodge tucked amidst the verdant jungle, the best places to stay in Honduras promise gorgeous scenery and heaps of adventure.

FOR AN APARTMENT OR VILLA

  • If you'd prefer a self-catering option, we suggest that you visit our online partner Booking.com.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

  • There are regular international flights to Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula or La Ceiba Airports. Take a bus or taxi from the airport to destinations across the mainland.
  • Alternatively, there are also international flights to Roatán, and you can catch a 55-minute ferry across to Utila from there.
  • Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car.
  • Most travellers visit Honduras between December and April, when the weather is at its best -- this is the dry season and you can expect daily highs around 30°C. Be prepared for showers if you visit during the rainy season (June to November). To beat the crowds and make the most of great deals, time your trip for May or June, before the peak of the rain. The hurricane season is expected in October.
