Honduras is a country often overlooked by travellers but most definitely rewarding for those who visit. You’ll find ecotourism in Honduras on the uncrowded Caribbean Bay Islands, each offering something different and a taste of ragga lifestyle with a cultural twist compared to the Latin American mainlanders. You will have your curiosity sparked and be educated while exploring the northern region of Copán Ruinas – an area that has some of the most intricate and intact Mayan ruins of anywhere in Central America – and at Lago de Yojoa in the middle of the country where endless adventure and ecotourism opportunities in Honduras await such as bird watching, caving, trekking, and kayaking.
While ecolodges are not as common as they are in more travelled Central American countries, ecotourism experiences are notably not hard to find. The above eco-experiences, combined with the numerous national parks, wildlife refuges and sanctuaries around the country, such as snorkelling hot spot Parque Nacional Jeannette Kawas, canoeing destination Cuero y Salado Wildlife refuge, and jungle trekking paradise Parque Nacional Capiro-Calentura, make Honduras an ecotourism and adventure destination not to be missed.
