This Central American country is off the main tourist circuits, meaning that you, as a tourist, can benefit from great exchange rates and good value experiences! Honduras borders both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean and most of the territory is mountainous with large stretches of undeveloped lowland jungle. The Río Plátano Biosphere Reserve – considered the last lungs of Central America has been appointed a world heritage site. High up in the mountains, the condensation of the persistent clouds have the led to the formation of the “Weeping Woods.” Oldgrove mangrove swamps and lagoons are teaming with life, and make for interesting snorkeling and scuba diving. Honduras was also the site of many Mayan settlements.  The city of Copán is one example of well preserved ruins with varying temples, intricate carvings, tombs and more. Here, there is an abundant amount of high relief style stone sculptures, as well as the only sites with the remains of a Mayan queen. Honduras was once a major banana producer.  On the Caribbean coast, towns such as Puerto Cortes, Tela and Trujilo show remnants of this activity. Come to Honduras for rich adventures and affordable prices!

One of the best dive spots in the Caribbean, and cheap (10 dives US$20 a dive typically). Catch the ferry from La Cieba, get a taxi to West End. There are tons of funky little bars and restaurants, and a lot of dive schools, which encourages competition. I used Coconut Tree Divers, and I can't recommend them highly enough. Oh, and because Roatan was settled by slaves dumped by the British, everyone speaks English not Spanish. Only downside I could find was that the beach has a lot of sandflies.
Good tip?
