Like many of its Central American neighbours, Honduras is rapidly changing. Its tourist economy is growing, and its political scene is maturing, making now a great time to visit. Filled with natural wonders, such as white-sand beaches, world-class bird watching, and outstanding national parks, the country is perfect for those who want a relaxed pace of life, amazing outdoor adventures, and the thrill of exploration.
Eco-tourism is on the rise in Honduras, and many of the top Honduras hotels are just a short distance away from the Jeanette Kawas National Park. One of the north coast's most scenic places, the park is home to long stretches of white sand, colourful offshore coral reefs, and troops of howler monkeys that provide a soundtrack for the dense forest.
Avid bird watchers often make reservations for rooms in the lake district of Honduras. Over 375 species thrive around Lago de Yojoa, the country's largest natural lake. Hotels in Honduras in the area also provide a great base for discovering the nearby Santa Barbara and Cerro Azul Meámbar National Parks. Both are known for their adventurous hikes, abundance of wildlife, and incredible scenery.
Some of the top cheap hotel deals in Honduras can be found in Tegucigalpa, the capital. The bustling city is known for its charming colonial centre, handful of good museums, and wide variety of restaurants serving up traditional meals of rice, beans, grilled meats, and tortillas for low prices. While in the capital, don't miss the outstanding Chiminike Children's Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the awe-inspiring Basilica de Suyapa.
The Bay Islands are one of the highlights of Honduras. Book a cheap Honduras hotel deal on Guanaja, Roatán, or Útila to be surrounded by clear, turquoise waters that hold a trove of riches, including massive sponges, vibrant coral, fish in kaleidoscopes of colours, and exotic species like whale sharks, sea turtles, and manta rays. Many Honduras hotel packages in the area include special discounts on scuba diving and snorkeling, but the experience is priceless.
