Honduras tours provide a great way to see this small Central American country. From most major cities in Honduras - Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, La Ceiba, Tela, and others - you can arrange Honduras tours that take in the major tourist attractions of the country: the Mayan site of Copan, the lush rainforests of the Mosquito Coast, or the dive sites of the Bay Islands.
Honduras adventure travel tours are becoming increasingly popular. Honduras offers many options for outdoor activities. The newest innovation in Honduras adventure travel is canopy tours. Adventurous souls get a harness, helmet and leather gloves and slide through jungle treetops and over rushing rivers on fixed cables. Jungle River Tours and several other tour groups in La Ceiba offer these exciting trips.
More traditional Honduras adventure travel includes ecotourism hikes in the interior rainforests. La Tigra National Park near Tegucigalpa and Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve in the Mosquito Coast are two great areas for backcountry Honduras tours. Northern Honduras also has some excellent trail systems for mountain biking. Mountain bike tours can be arranged through several Honduras adventure travel companies in La Ceiba.
Honduras has some of the world's best sites for white water rafting and kayaking. Jungle Tours and other adventure travel groups in La Ceiba can organize trips down Class II to V rapids. Some of the best Honduras tours combine hikes into national parks, rafting trips down jungle rivers, and stays in eco lodges.
San Pedro Sula is the best place to organize Honduras tours to the Copan ruins. It is well worth the trip: large Mayan sculptures, buildings, and hieroglyphics hark back to a long-past pre-Columbian civilization.
Many visitors to Honduras will not have time to take in all the tourist attractions on the mainland. Increasing numbers of visitors are experiencing Honduras as part of cruises to Central America. If you are just in the Bay Islands for a day or two, consider taking Roatan Honduras sightseeing tours.
Most cruise ships will organize Roatan Honduras sightseeing tours, taking in the best beaches and visits to some unique native Garifuna communities. If you have time, it's worth taking Roatan Honduras sightseeing tours by water taxi. Hire a taxi in the West Bay or West End and explore the white sand beaches on the north shore. Many of the best spots on Roatan are inaccessible by car.
For a small country, Honduras is remarkably diverse, with mangrove swamps, Caribbean beaches, pristine cloud forests, and archaeological wonders crowded into an area smaller than most U.S. states. Honduras tours can be tailored to suit any tastes, from Honduras adventure travel to lazy beach-hopping the country has something for everyone.
