General.

Burdened by a negative image, the beautiful and versatile Honduras lurks. From volcanic islands in the south to national parks in the center and tropical islands in the north of the country. In addition, you can also delve into Honduras’ cultural history when you visit the Mayan ruins at Copán. There is plenty to discover in this little-visited gem.
