Tourism has always been an important part of economic growth in Honduras. By 2008, tourism occupied the third place as far as generation of hard currency for the country, and growth, both in numbers of visitors and actual currency spent in the country had been on the rise at over 8 % per year, however after the political crisis in 2009 that resulted in the ousting of then president Manuel Zelaya Rosales, and the subsequent rise in drugs coming through the country which spiraled the homicide rate in Honduras, tourism went “to pot” and practically disappeared. The international press did not help much either, as they kept publishing horrific editorials about safety in Honduras.
So you will say, the title is Honduras 2016, what does all of the above have to do with this? You are right, I was trying to put things in perspective of where we are to explain what we expect in 2016. One of the leading travel portals in the Internet, tripadvisor, recently published a list of the top 10 islands to visit in the World. Guess what, Roatan, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras came out in third, yes third place! This is above Santorini, Greece, Bali and Bora Bora just to name a few!
In addition, CNN just published a list of emerging destinations for 2016. Believe it or not, Honduras is not only on the list, but is the only Central American country in it and the only other Latin American region included is the Patagonia!
CNN’s article specifically mentions the Bay Islands of Honduras and the dense jungles of Pico Bonito. It’s a shame they have never been to the Cangrejal River Valley, adjacent to Pico Bonito because I am sure they would have mentioned that too!
We have our hopes that these two publications mentioned above will help drive the resurgence of tourism in Honduras. Honduras president Juan Orlando Hernandez has declared tourism is a national priority, and has effectively reduced the murder rate in over 20%. Much work still lies ahead, but one thing is for sure, things are going in the right direction and for Honduras 2016 seems like a great year ahead.
Take advantage and visit Honduras, and heed the recommendations made above, visit the Bay Islands of Honduras and combine your trip with a quick two a three day jaunt over to the mainland to visit Pico Bonito National Park. Consider staying within the Cangrejal River Valley at the award winning La Villa de Soledad B&B; you will be glad you did!
Getting to Cayos Cochinos AKA the Hog Cays is easy!
Cayos Cochinos is one of the last pristine set of islands in the Caribbean Sea! Fortunately, they are not out in the middle of nowhere and impossible to get to. Getting to Cayos Cochinos is actually easier than you think!
Located about 14 miles off the Caribbean Coast of Honduras, Cayos Cochinos are an idyllic set of islands, consisting of 2 small islands and 13 tiny sandy cays. The area is under a protection status by the Honduran Government, as a National Marine Monument. This means that access to the islands is restricted and there are rules to comply with.
There are two major launching points that provide the proper best options for getting to Cayos Cochinos. One is from the Garifuna Village of Sambo Creek, very near the city of La Ceiba, the other is from the Island of Roatan. Most people take the first option, which is much more affordable, however the boats and service are also quite a bit more basic. From Sambo Creek, getting to Cayos Cochinos will take you about 45 minutes. Because the boats are relatively small, the tour always leaves early in the morning and returns early in the afternoon, to insure they are back on the mainland before the surf gets rough.
From Roatan, you will find several different options. By far the best is offered by Ruthless Roatan Charters, which operates once a week from Roatan to Cayos Cochinos. Enjoy the trip in a vintage 41 foot Hatteras that has been fully refitted, and offers the classiest option as far as getting to Cayos Cochinos is concerned. The trip departs from West End at 7:00 a.m. and returns around 4:00 p.m. This is one heck of a tour!
One of the highlights of Cayos Cochinos is the Garifuna community at Chachahuate, another are the extremely healthy reefs and beautiful white sand beaches.
Regardless of whether you are vacationing in Roatan or La Ceiba, a trip to Cayos Cochinos will certainly be one of the highlights of your trip. Many travelers like to experience both, La Ceiba and Roatan. If you are interested in visiting both, we, at La Villa de Soledad would be more than happy to help you arrange your trip to Cayos Cochinos departing from either location. Come and enjoy the magic of the tropical rain forests of Central America, and then take a short trip to Roatan to relax in some of the best beaches in the World, in a true Vintage Caribbean Style!
Is Honduras really the place to go to get scuba certified? The answer is a definite yes! Getting scuba certified in Honduras is easy, affordable and most of all fun! Honduras has actually carved itself a name in the diving world as the most affordable place to dive and get certified in the world.
You will probably ask me, how can a country in Central America be so outstanding to get scuba certified? Well, if you look at a map, things will start to make sense… fast!
First of all, Central America is bathed by the Caribbean Sea! Second, Honduras is the one country in Central America that is most developed on the Caribbean coast, most of the other countries are more developed on their Pacific coast. And third, Honduras is the only Central America country that actually has a small archipelago on the Caribbean; the Bay Islands of Honduras. The Archipelago has 6 islands and many tiny cays, this without counting the Hog Cays, or Cayos Cochinos, which consists of two small islands and 13 sand cays.
Of the 6 main islands that form the Bay Islands of Honduras, three are permanently inhabited, Utila, Roatan and Guanaja. All three offer unique and very different experiences to the traveler, each including diving. So you will ask, how should I go about getting scuba certified in Honduras?
There is no doubt that the most popular, most affordable, and probably the most fun is the island of Utila. There are over a dozen dive shops in Utila, and they all offer PADI courses from open water diving to different advanced courses. The Dive shops all have small hostels and inns where they offer special deals to the travelers that book the scuba courses with them, making your stay and certification truly affordable.
Perhaps the most outstanding trademark of getting scuba certified in Honduras is the fact that there is a true party atmosphere within the different bars as soon as the sun starts to set. Find one of the multiple bars, such as Tranquila Bar and Rehab, which are located on the waterfront for your first beers or cocktails of the day while you enjoy the sunset. After, you can continue on to Skidrows, Treetanic Bar or even Casa Dr. John for a true party atmosphere and challenges that will earn you a much desired t shirt after guzzling down a series of shots. Check out this video to get an idea of what to expect!
Another good option for getting scuba certified in Honduras is the island of Roatan. This is a much bigger island than Utila, so you should plan on staying in the village of West End. Here you will find many different dive shops, and although the prices are not as cheap and the variety of bars are not as wild as those in Utila, you will still find a very affordable destination with good entertainment for your scuba certification.
You should take note that most travelers heading to the bay islands in their quest for getting scuba certified in Honduras pass through the city of La Ceiba on the mainland just to catch the ferry to the islands. This is a big mistake! If you are coming this far, you should make sure you check out the Cangrejal River Valley, a truly beautiful spot that is unique in Central America. Natural scenery, great white water rafting and zip line canopy tours, hiking in the rain forests and relaxing in nature are just a few of the options you will find there.
Make sure that you do not miss out visiting the Cangrejal River Valley when following your mission of getting scuba certified in Honduras. You will thank me for having given you the tip of this beautiful area in La Ceiba. If you are looking for a place to be pampered, check out La Villa de Soledad B&B a lovely boutique property on the Cangrejal River that has been awarded the trip advisor Travelers Choice award in 2014 and 2015.
Planning your trip to the Bay Islands? Here are some things you need to know before going to Roatan:
Roatan, the largest of the Bay Islands, is by far the most visited of the Bay Islands in Honduras. It is also the largest of the islands and the most populated. Roughly 60,000 souls live and work on the island, however rather than one large city; there are actually several different towns and villages throughout the island. Your experience on Roatan will depend on where you stay, because each of the towns on the island has their own, unique feeling to them. That being said, and if my advice is of any good, generally stay away from staying in Coxen Hole and French Harbour, these two are the largest towns, this is where the working people live, and they are definitely not touristy or for that matter, pretty. You might need to go to them to go to the bank, purchase groceries, or even to eat at a nice restaurant, but other than that, there is really no reason to go there.
The most pleasant, charming area is by far West End. This small beach side community offers many small hotels and inns, many restaurants and bars, and is where you will find most of the tourists. Nearby, in West Bay Beach, you will find several larger hotels located on what many consider the best beach in Central America. Many of these hotels are larger, all inclusive operations, however if you look around, you can find a jewel or two hidden between the larger resorts and right on the beach. One of these jewels is the Bananarama Resort.
Another area that offers different options is Sandy Bay. Properties here are more spread out, and you need to walk along the beach to get from one to the other. Although there are not so many restaurants and bars available, the setting is indeed more intimate and quiet. The East End of Roatan is generally speaking much less developed. With the exception a few resorts, such as the Parrot Tree Plantation, the Media Luna Resort and the Turquoise Bay Resort, that are isolated, free standing resorts and kind of far from the rest of the island; you will find fewer hotels and tourist services on this part of the island. However you will also find some really nice and picturesque towns, such as Calabash Bight, Jonesville and Oakridge, just to mention a few.
If you are interested in finding that beautiful, isolated Caribbean Beach, then one of the things to know before going to Roatan is that far out on the East End you will find some truly spectacular beaches and settings. The Paya Bay Resort offers two lovely beaches, one of them actually private to the property, and a bit farther down the road towards Camp Bay you will find the Playa Barbosa as well as Camp Bay Beach, truly unique white sand beaches that are away from the crowds you will find on West Bay Beach.
The Bay Islanders generally consider themselves as direct descendents of the original British colonizers that came to the islands at the end of the seventeen hundreds and beginning of the eighteen hundreds. Names such as Jackson, Hynds, Wood, Bush, Bodden, Tatum, McNab are still very common in Roatan. As a general rule, islanders refer to those who live in Honduras as “them Spaniards” basically because the mainland was conquered by the Spaniards and Spanish is spoken throughout Central America. There tends to be an animosity from the Islanders to “them Spaniards” and they all like to promote the mainland as very dangerous and unsafe to visit. This is not a fact or a reality, but rather an attempt to keep you on the island so that you do not discover the beauty of the mainland. Believe me, this is one of the most important tips about the things to know before going to Roatan! Mainland Honduras is a short 1 ½ hour ferry trip, and there are so many absolutely beautiful places just across the channel from Roatan, that not visiting them is a true shame!
Take for example the Cangrejal River Valley: a truly unique valley located only ½ hour from the ferry terminal! Here you can enjoy a dense tropical rain forest, where two different National Parks meet: Nombre de Dios National Park and Pico Bonito National Park. The Cangrejal River, with crystal clear waters offers the best white water rafting in Honduras, and for that matter, all of the Caribbean and even possibly Central America.
Best of all you can find a variety of small inns, lodges and boutique bed and breakfasts located within the Cangrejal River Valley. A true, unique setting to complement your stay at the lovely island of Roatan. These lodges can all arrange for pick up at the ferry or airport to have you transferred to their properties. Staff at all of them are bilingual, and you will find that they will be more than happy to help you set up a variety of activities that are all within walking distance from your bedroom. Do yourself a favor, and include a couple of nights in the Cangrejal River Valley when planning your Roatan vacation!
Here are some good tips to plan the best possible Central America Vacations: First of all, decide what countries you want to visit. Keep in mind that although geographically Central America is made up by 7 countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Belize and Panama, there are two which are very different and have never really been part of Central America from a political point of view. Belize was a British Colony, and never shared any history with the rest of Central America. Although it has the advantage of English being the official language, it is a World apart from the traditional charm of Central America. Panama, was actually part of Colombia until its independence, so politically it was light years away from the rest of Central America, which was part of the viceroyalty of New Spain, whose headquarters were in Mexico City. 100 years of Panama under the tight influence of the USA because of the Panama Canal has made it a different country from the real Central America.
Considering the above, there are really only 5 Central American countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Your Central America vacations can be very different, depending on where you decide to go. Costa Rica for one is the by far the most popular destination in Central America. This also means that you will find yourself in a tourist trap with thousands of over tourists trying to visit the exact same places and attractions as you are. If you like crowded vacation destinations, tourist traps and long lines, then Costa Rica is your destination! However if you are looking for some authentic Central America vacations, I urge you to look beyond Costa Rica: Guatemala has the advantage of its Maya heritage, and if you go beyond the bustle of its busy capital city, you will surely find many charming colonial towns and villages full with that special Maya heritage. El Salvador is relatively small and quite developed, and although it is the best connected country if you are looking for airlift, it is also the one with least natural attractions to offer.
That leaves only two countries: Nicaragua and Honduras. Both are great destinations, with a lot to offer both historically and naturally. Nicaragua is a land of lakes and volcanoes, with lovely colonial cities and friendly people. It is mostly developed along the Pacific coast and has become a very popular destination for surfing. If surfing, volcanoes and colonial cities are your cup of tea, then Nicaragua is probably your best option for some memorable Central America vacations that are tailored to your preference. For complete information on Nicaragua, visit Nicatips.
Last, but not least is Honduras. In my opinion, the country offers the best authentic Central America vacations! From the magnificent Mayan Ruins at Copan, to the world famous Bay Islands of Honduras, the country offers magnificent national parks, the best beaches in Central America and friendly people. Sadly, Honduras has been tagged as the murder capital of the World, an unfair tag that does not reflect the reality for most of the country and its friendly, charming people. Honduras is actually one of the safest tourist destinations in Central America for tourists. The average Honduran is friendly, helpful and will go out of his way to help tourists who might need help. Honduras also has 4 international airports that allow easy access to the different regions of the country. Perhaps the most outstanding destination in the country is Atlantida, with is a small department (equivalent to a state or province) that is located on the Caribbean Coast of Honduras. Atlantida has a total of 8 protected areas within or adjacent to its territory, offering some of the best tropical rain forests in all of Central America. Wildlife refuges with mangrove canals and lagoons, as well as some of the most pristine reefs in the Caribbean can be found within Atlantida. Best of all, is the Garifuna culture, designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO can be easily found within the area. If you are looking for some outstanding Central America vacations, look no further, visit Atlantida in Honduras, here you will not be overrun by tourists, and you will fine authentic eco lodges and fantastic beaches, as well as some of the best reefs in the world just a short distance away in the Bay Islands. For complete information on Atlantida and Honduras visit Honduras.travel and Honduras.com.
Atlantida offers unique lodging, such as La Villa de Soledad Bed and Breakfast. Come and experience it for yourself! You will have the best Central America vacations ever!
One of the highlights of Honduras is the fact that the some of the best tropical rain forests of Central America are located in this country. Without doubt, the abundance of this unique habitat is especially large along the Caribbean Coast of Central America, which is much more humid than the Pacific coast of Central America. The tropical rain forests of Central America where probably the main reason why the Spanish Conquistadors kept away from the Caribbean Coast and settled along the more friendly climate along the Pacific Ocean, thus, most of the important cities in Central America are either on the Pacific Coast or the highlands of Central America. Cities such as Guatemala City, Tegucigalpa, San Salvador, Leon, Granada, San Jose and Panama city are all along the Pacific Coast region which offers a much drier climate, where life was easier without the excess of bugs, diseases, and poisonous snakes you find in the jungles of the Caribbean Coasts.
Most of the Caribbean Coast of Central America is still very inaccessible, even today, in the XXI century! The eastern tip of Honduras, known as the Moskito Coast, or “La Moskitia” in Spanish, is still inaccessible by land, and can only be reached by air or sea! The same can be said for the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua, where access is almost completely limited to either traveling down rivers to the coast, or flying. For example, Bluefields, the largest city in the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua does not have a road that connects it with the rest of the country, and access is only via a 3 hour boat ride down the Rio Escondido from the Community of El Rama to Bluefields. The same applies to the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica and Panama, which are quite isolated to this day. This makes the Northwestern Caribbean coast of Honduras truly unique, because this area is actually quite developed. Honduras has cities like Tela, La Ceiba and Trujillo that are on the Caribbean and that due to the rugged mountains behind them, plus the fact that most of these mountains are protected areas, still offer some of the more dense tropical rain forests of Central America.
These tropical rain forests of Central America are still in a great state of preservation, and form what is considered the Mesoamerican biological corridor, that allows for the migration of large mammals, such as the iconic Jaguar, king of the tropical rain forests of Central America, and the Antillean Manatee in the estuaries and coastal lagoons along the coast. National Parks, such as Pico Bonito National Park are not only icons, but actually provide access for tourists to visit the tropical rain forests of Central America. For the traveler that is looking to interact with the rain forests of Central America, Honduras, and in particular, La Ceiba offers the best alternative for easy access and a unique experience. Perhaps the best option for a great experience is to be found along the Cangrejal River Valley, a unique area where two national parks converge, and where you can find a variety of jungle ecohotels, inns, lodges and tour operators providing different services and experiences. For more information, you can visit www.cangrejalriver.com. If you want a chance to experience the tropical rain forests of Central America, visit the Caribbean Coast of Honduras, and stay at La Villa de Soledad B&B which is in the Cangrejal River Valley.
Although it’s true that many business persons prefer to stay in the large, international franchise hotels, more and more world travelers are looking for smaller, family run hotels for a more authentic experience. The difference between both options is vast, and while the international franchises offer a comfort zone for travelers that require a “good address” that will give them certain prestige during their business trips, many travelers are looking for a more down to earth experience, to understand the locals way of life, values and local foods.
There is no doubt that family run hotels are more on demand than they ever were before, and you can bet on the fact that the trend will continue to grow. One great advantage today is the fact that as a traveler, you can actually review the experience that other travelers have had at a particular hotel. A hotel owner or manager will surely rave about his property, but there is no doubt that he will have a biased opinion, he is, after all, promoting himself trying to get your business. This is why tools like Google plus pages for business will have a sustained growth; it gives both the owner and guests who are staying at a hotel a chance to express their views and share their experiences. For example, https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/106136395155047359489/+Lavilladesoledad/posts is a business page where you can see what guests have reviewed and compare it with what the owners say about their business!
Both offer great tools that have changed the way travelers decide where they will stay in their next vacations. They have also supported the growth of the family run hotels that arrived as a trend and will surely remain for years to come.
In La Ceiba, most hotels are actually family businesses, and at the current time, we do not have big international franchise hotels to offer, however not all of these family run hotels actually have the loving touch of the family that owns them.
The family run hotels in La Ceiba that are truly run, with a hands on always present attention from the family that owns and runs them are not very common, and you can generally find them by reading through the comments that guests leave in the reviews where they share about their experience.
We, at La Villa de Soledad B&B, put pride into being one of the family run hotels in La Ceiba, and you will be hard pressed to find another option in La Ceiba that offers the tender loving care that we offer to our guests. We love having guests stay with us, and share our home, time and friendship with them. If you are looking for a family run hotel in La Ceiba, come to La Villa de Soledad and relax in nature with us! Hope to see you soon!
Despite the fact that there are no active volcanos in Honduras,
Probably the most famous hot springs in Honduras are those located in the small community of Arcilaca, very close to Gracias, the original Capital of Honduras and Central America located in the department of Lempira, in Western Honduras. These hot springs offer two different pools with springs sprouting right into them, and then flowing out to a larger pool where the water is usually cooler. These hot springs are very popular with the locals, and tend to fill up on weekends and full moon nights, when the local population likes to go to the hot springs. The temperature is delightful, and although the facilities are rustic, they are pleasant and usually clean.
Nearby, also close to Gracias, but on the road towards Santa Rosa de Copan you will find Termas del Rio, another source of natural hot springs in Honduras that offers much more complete facilities. Although they are not the necessarily “upscale” they offer large, clean restrooms and changing facilities, very clean, manicured gardens and a more private setting. These facilities are owned by the same family that owns and manages the Hotel La Posada de Don Juan, by far the best and most complete hotel in Gracias, so you can arrange a tour or get directions to the hot springs there. www.posadadedonjuanhotel.com
There is another area with hot springs in Honduras near the Archaeological site of Copan. The trip will take you through a mountain road through the village of Sesesmil and on to one of more famous coffee fincas in Honduras, Finca El Cisne www.fincaelcisne.com where you can spend the night and be very close to the hot springs. There is a nice spa operating in these hot springs, Spa Luna Jaguar, https://www.facebook.com/luna.j.spa where you can enjoy a fantastic, relaxing process in the hot springs and their facilities.
The highest concentration of hot springs in Honduras is actually on the Caribbean Coast, especially around the City of La Ceiba. There are several facilities that offer different services to clients. Perhaps the nicest, most attractive of all hot springs are those located just above the community of Sambo Creek. Here a combination of tropical rain forest, rugged mountains with steep slopes, and some hot springs that mix with a cold water stream from the Nombre de Dios Mountains provide a unique experience, where you will enjoy natural hot water springs in the jungle with views out to the blue Caribbean and the enchanting Cayos Cochinos just off the coast of mainland Honduras. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sambo-Creek-Canopy-Tours-and-Spa/370059736352675 Here you can either simply relax and get a massage or combine with an exhilarating zip line canopy tour through the jungle. This facilty is located close to the Cangrejal River Valley, so you can easily arrange to visit it if you are staying in one of the hotels in the valley. For information of your options in the Cangrejal River Valley check out www.cangrejalrivervalley.com.
Nearby is a wellness center, known as USHA, run by a famous Dr. Sebi, who uses another source of hot springs in Honduras, located within his property, as well as a unique blend of vegetables and plants to cure his clients from different maladies.
Last, but no least, The old colonial city of Trujillo, located on the Caribbean Coast, is another spot where you will hot springs in Honduras. Now that the cruise ships will begin using the Banana Coast cruise ship facilities inTrujillo, these will surely be updated and fully functional. They are located in a property located in the community of Silin, about 10 miles outside of Trujillo, on the main road towards La Ceiba.

Not only is it an important and fastest growing cruise ship port of call in the Caribbean, it also has regularly scheduled nonstop flights serviced by Delta, American, United and Avianca from important gateways in North and Central America.
