Honduran People

The country of Honduras is home to people of various ancestries. The Garifuna communities (known in Europe as the Black Caribs) are found on the Bay Island of Roatan, on Cayos Cochinos (the Hog Islands), and along the costal towns. Mayan IndiansThe ancient Mayans left the Copan Ruins archaeological site (considered one of the most artistically advanced and detailed of all Mayan cities), where nearby the modern Maya, known as the Chortí Indians, can still be found. The Miskito Indians' most popular habitat became famous after it was introduced in Paul Theroux's novel, "The Mosquito Coast" which depicted the La Moskitia area. Other ethnic groups include the Lenca, Pech, Tolupan (Jicaque), and Tawahka Indians.

About Honduras Travel and Vacation

Modern day comforts are not only taken for granted, travellers have become so attached to them that they miss the opportunity to enjoy nature and simply relax to the soothing sounds of it. Although television, internet and all of the modern gadgets are helpful, travelers may have become detached from simple, down to earth living. This is one of the reasons that many seek to enjoy a vacation; to disconnect from daily routines, and allow, if only for a few days, us to come back into contact with nature.

Roatan is the new Florida

Seeking the perfect destination to spend prized and precious vacation time has become a challenge. Every day we hear of new, glitzy resorts, and fancy destinations that are all competing for the vacationers' holiday time. The most sought after location, especially for the young crowd, is the beach. Sea and sand have a magic allure that attracts many young vacationers who are looking to party, meet other young folks, and forget about their routine tasks back home.

Experience The Sounds of Nature in Central America

Many middle aged and senior folks, meanwhile, are looking for vacations that can soothe their souls; and there are few places around the world that can still provide that. Central America has many, many different options that fall into this category. Although modernization has come to all big cities in the region, the truth is that life in the smaller villages and towns is still as down to earth as it was a century ago. Small cities and towns where there is plenty of respect for persons, whether local or visitors, where life still is in touch with nature, and the old farming ways. Where instead of having a bottled juice, you enjoy a fresh, natural fruit juice with an authentic taste. Where tropical fruits abound, and visitors are amazed at the variety of flavors and fruits one did not even dream existed. In Honduras, we have all of this for our travellers, vacationers, naturists and adventure seekers.

While you plan your next travel adventure and vacation, consider the best resorts, hotels, and restaurants Honduras has to offer.
