Custom Honduras Travel
Honduras is one of those small countries in Central America that we want to keep for ourselves … Often overlooked in guidebooks, Honduras allows an extension to the Caribbean from Guatemala or El Salvador, but without ignoring its beautiful archaeological site of Copán and the multitude of colorful birds recorded in the Pico Bonito Park or the beetles in the Cusuco Park.
The island of Roatan is a worth known jewel of the Caribbean Sea … A tropical and green island surrounded by water in shades of blue and turquoise, and at 100 m from the beach, the reefs of the second barrier coral reef in the world after Australia ones.
