Capital Cities of Mesoamerica - New Tour through El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala
During our tour "Capital Cities of Mesoamerica" we visit the capitals of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. Each city has its own special charm. In San Salvador we visit among other sites the National Museum of Anthropology, which houses an impressive collection of pre Colombian antiquities from the Pre classic era. The origin of Tegucigalpa dates back to the 16th century and is linked to the discovery of silver deposits in the surrounding areas. This colonial and mining past is still palpable in the historic centre. With 4.1 million people living in the metropolitan area, Guatemala City is the largest urban agglomeration in Central America. Bordered by a lake, forested mountains, and four volcanoes it has beautiful surroundings. In addition, we visit the archaeological site Joya de Cerén, as well as the Mayan ruins of Tazumal and Copán.

National Parks in Honduras: Punta Izopo
Honduras contains vast biological resources. To protect the natural genetic biodiversity, numerous protected areas have been created, of which we present the most important on our website. New on our list is the Punta Izopo National Park located at the Honduran north coast next to the coastal town of Tela. The area is composed of mangrove forests, lagoons and coastal canals, tropical rainforest, swampy grasslands, and rivers. Due to this variety of ecosystems, the national park is home to a great number of animals, such as the American crocodile and various species of ocean turtles. A tour to Punta Izopo includes kayaking through the maze of mangrove creeks and rivers to silently sneak up on waterbirds and other animals without disturbing the natural beauty.

Our tour guides
In the course of the actualisation of our website we include our guides Alberto Garcia and Saul Molina in the section "Our Team". At this point we want to seize the opportunity to introduce the two of them to you. Alberto has been working in tourism for more than 20 years. Having worked on various cruise ships for about five years, he got to know the entire Caribbean, as well as great parts of North America, Europe and the Pacific region. Saul worked at first as musician, journalist and photographer, before he committed himself to tourism in 1989. Today Alberto and Saul are widely recognised tour guides for tours focussing archaeology, colonial history, culture and nature. They have years of experience in guiding small groups and individual travellers both in Honduras and the neighbouring countries.
