Are you thinking of traveling to Honduras but afraid to because of all the bad news the press loves to push about Honduras? Sounds like you need and updated Honduras travel blog to tell you what is really happening in Honduras, where you can go, and what your real risks are!
Most travelers coming to Honduras include a stay in Copan and in the Bay Islands of Honduras. Copan is close to the Guatemala border and therefore considered by many as almost not part of Honduras, and the Bay Islands of Honduras are considered much safer because they are islands. This is what most visitors coming to Honduras think. As for the rest of Honduras, their general feeling is to rush across it as fast as possible and try not to stop anywhere!
These poor travelers do not realize just how much they are missing. This is why I am writing more about Honduras these days! There is no doubt in my mind that a good, up to date Honduras travel blog is a real necessity.
You may ask what credentials I have to consider myself an authority to write about Honduras and why you should even bother to read me. Well… for one, I have lived in Honduras for 22 years. This does give me some credit, or no? Ok, just a bit, well, back in 1994, I started a publication that has become an icon in Honduras: Honduras tips. This travel guide, which I personally ran until 5 years ago, allowed me to explore every “nook and cranny” in Honduras, so I personally know the different destinations, the different businesses and truly special tips, which I am happy to share with you.
I have also written different articles in different respected web pages, such as Honduras.com and ezinearticles.com. Last, but not least, together with my lovely Honduran wife, Soledad, I run a lovely bed and breakfast in the Cangrejal River Valley: La Villa de Soledad B&B
The truth is that Honduras is not half as dangerous as the press or the state department tries to make it sound.
Most travelers coming to Honduras and visiting the above mentioned destinations are either coming from Guatemala, in which case they spend a couple of days in Copan and then rush overland Honduras to La Ceiba to catch the ferry to the Bay Islands. Others are traveling Central America from South to North, and therefore travel from Leon to La Ceiba, usually taking a shuttle from Leon to La Ceiba, which arrives just in time for them to jump off the shuttle and into the ferry to the islands!
These poor travelers do not understand that they are missing out on soooo much! If you want to make sure that you do not make the same mistake, I invite you to follow me in my daily attempt to provide good, up to date tips through this Honduras travel blog! Happy travels throughout Honduras and Central America!
