Why choose Honduras for my holiday?
Honduras is a hauntingly beautiful and incredibly diverse country. It is blessed with outstanding archaeological sites, heritage of the ancient Maya civilization. Honduras has endless tropical beaches and islands that are perfectly positioned for scuba divers, island beach lovers. You will also find national parks and protected areas, pristine landscapes; cloud forests nestled high in the mountains. And the vast Moskitia region, a tropical rain forest comprised of primary rain forest, coastal mangroves, and pine Savannahs. These areas form a significant part of the remaining biological corridor that once covered the Central American land bridge. Honduras is an exciting, yet peaceful friendly region on the verge of tourist discovery. It all awaits you!

As the trails through the national parks take place between 200 and 2000 metres above sea level, no special suitability regarding latitudes is necessary. Nevertheless, you should not underestimate the hot and humid climate of the tropics.

What about MESOAMERICA TRAVEL and ecology?
Mesoamerica Travel strongly believes that tourism is a justifiable activity if it does contribute to the protection of flora and fauna, the prevention and repair of environmental degradation, the economic well-being of local communities, the respect and tolerance for our cultures; we work daily to translate these beliefs into action. We link commercial tourism to local conservation programs working in close cooperation with the organizations in charge of protected areas, managing natural resources and community development. We support business by buying local goods and services. Most of all we encourage and create opportunities for authentic, meaningful and beneficial cross-cultural interactions between travellers and local people.
