Just as breathtaking and beautiful as the Honduran girls are, is their
country. Honduras is a beautiful, partly discovered country in the center of
Central America. The climate is ideal. Depending on the location, it is mainly
subtropical. The country has coasts at the Pacific and the Atlantic with
tropical dream beaches, palm trees and white sand. Besides that, you can find
beautiful mountains, caves, waterfalls, hot water springs and lakes. Honduras has several beautiful colonial cities. You can also discover the world-famous
Maya-ruins of Copán in this country. Honduras is eager to progress. The main language is
Spanish but English is also widely spoken. English is officially spoken at the
breathtaking Bay Islands. Tourism is
only starting, therefore the stay is lower priced than in most popular vacation
destinations, and accommodations are already on a pretty good level. People are
so kind and friendly, have a great hospitality, and of course, for you there is a very special
and lovely Latin girl in the first place……..
Honduras, the home of most of the Latin girls has a nice subtropical climate all year long in the lowlands and milder in
the mountains. The north is hot and humid, for example in San Pedro Sula. At the
coast sometimes it gets a little bit fresher, for example Tela and La Ceiba. The
south is hot and dry, for example Choluteca and Nacaome. The central zones are
the coolest in the country because of their altitude above sea level. For
example, Siguatepeque (1100m) and La
The rainy season normally goes
from July to December. But this is mainly in the form of late afternoon rains.
This is also a good time to travel to Honduras and visit the Latin girls. When
going to the central zones you sometimes need a sweater or jacket only on December, which is the coolest period in the year.
For all times of the year, sunglasses and sun screen are advisable.
You can visit Honduras with a normal passport from most nations with no visa necessary.
There is an US$46.20 airport tax when leaving. With most airlines this in included within the ticket price but not all like Spirit Airlines where you have to pay this fee at the airport.
Honduras has several international airports: Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba, and Roatan.
Note: When possible, an
arrival at daytime is so much more practical than at night.
The local currency is the Lempira. US Dollars are easy to exchange in banks
and lots of places. Euros can be more difficult. Exchanging can be done in
most banks. Outside the airport, you can also take a chance with
street-changers but don’t risk too much. It could be difficult to cash
traveler-checks. The known credit
cards are well accepted.
Electricity: 110V 60Hz "American" socket.
The electricity in Honduras might fail sometimes. You can expect it especially
when is it raining with a thunderstorm. A flashlight might be useful then.
Don’t drink from the tap. Drinking water is available in bottles. On warm
days, drink a lot. Repellent against bugs can be useful.
Language: Spanish is the language of the Latin girl's home, Honduras, as well as most of the other girl's
countries. When you do not speak this language it’s good advice to take a short course Spanish. Is this is not possible then take with you a small
traveling". This will help with basic communication. There are also small translator-computers available which can be a nice aid. However, make sure that the type is easy to use.
The majority of the places in Honduras you can visit normally. Normal precautions are necessary, especially at big cites like: no going out alone at nights, not showing valuables in public, and not traveling alone to solitary places. Some colonies in San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa you can better not visit. If you have any doubt about a specific place you can ask us and of course we will be at your service on our
Some information about a number of locations within Honduras with references to the centrally located Siguatepeque:
Distances in Honduras are slightly difficult to calculate and depend on the place you are going to
visit, since the condition of the roads every year is different. The main road
(Pan American) from San Pedro Sula, Siguatepeque, Comayagua to the capital city
Tegucigalpa is for the most part paved and in pretty good condition. But since hurricane Mitch hit the country in the
autumn of 1998, a lot of places in Honduras are still difficult to reach.
The Ruinas de Copán.
The thousands of years- old
ruins of the most important city of Maya-Indian-culture, the original
inhabitants of Central America. For sure, a "must" for every tourist visiting
Honduras. Absolutely a number one tourist attraction. Very impressive, with a beautiful small town nearby. From Siguatepeque, about 5 hours by
car and more with the bus.
The Pulhapanzák waterfalls.
A very beautiful national park with a system of
waterfalls as the main attraction. The highest waterfall is where the river
Rio Lindo (beautiful river) falls down more than 45 meters.
With public transportation you can’t reach Pulhapanzák. From Siguatepeque, it’s a two hour drive. There will be an entrance fee.
Lago de Yojoa.
biggest natural lake of Honduras. Beautifully surrounded with mountains. The
road from San Pedro Sula heading to Siguatepeque leads you just beside the
lake. At the lake, you can find a lot of small restaurants where you can very
well enjoy a fish meal with a beautiful scenic view from the lake. Lake Yojoa
is about one hour drive from Siguatepeque.
Cuevas de Taulabé.
Astonishing caves, at a distance of
about 40 minutes from Siguatepeque; also on the road from San Pedro Sula.
Normally open for public, for an entrance fee. Lighting available. The last
part of the caves is still not yet discovered.
Highest city of Honduras, at 1700m (5577 feet) over sea
level. A nice town with a typical Lenca Indian market. You can use the steps
to climb to a special spot with a very picturesque view of the town. One and
half hours from Siguatepeque on a paved road.
A quiet town at the coast, with beautiful
tropical dream beaches, nice white sand and palm-trees. A real tropical
paradise. At about 4 hour- drive from Siguatepeque.
Not far from Tela. Very large botanical gardens where you can
find an enormous collection of special trees and plants. Unique in the world.
Another city at the coast, just after Tela.
The beaches in the city are maybe less beautiful than the ones in Tela, but
the city has much more restaurants and clubs. A little bit outside the city, you
can also find beautiful beaches. La Ceiba is famous for its carnival (the
third week of May) and its nightlife.
A majestic, green, 8000 foot peak in a virtually undeveloped Eco-Park and rain forest overlooking the Caribbean ocean.
The Bay Islands.
The breathtaking islands
of Roatán, Guanaja and Utila are a part of the Honduran territory. In
comparison with the mainland, the stay is a little bit more expensive, because
it’s a popular vacation destination and it depends on tourism. The main
language is English because of the historic British influence in the Caribbean area. You can visit the Islands with a small plane from La Ceiba, Tegucigalpa
or San Pedro Sula or by a short ferry boat ride.
Historic neighbor-city of Siguatepeque at a 30 km distance. It was one of Honduras capital cities. The
cathedral has the oldest clock of the American continent.
The second biggest lake
in Honduras and the most important energy provider. It’s rather far away from
the normal routes. You need a special permit to visit.
City of the "Pinos". A type of pine tree you
can still find in big forests. But some do get lost because of fires.
Siguatepeque is situated in the higher central part of the country at 1100m.
Attractive because of its climate and size (not too big and not too small).
You can find the market every day but Sunday and Thursday, which are special
market days with a lot of vendors from the surrounding towns selling their
goods. In Siguatepeque you can also visit a nice park, Parque San Juan. For a
few Lempiras you can visit the park and small museum of plants and animals
nearby. You can find some nice restaurants in the center of town. On the
Pan-American, you can find some bigger, more American style restaurants. Siguatepeque has a nice forest, Calanterique, where once a year from the 5th
to the 15th of April, they celebrate de Festival of the Pines.
