Explore Honduras with Moon Travel Guides

Prepare for relaxation and easy-going outdoor fun with helpful maps and articles.

Discover Honduras

Honduras is fantastic natural beauty, cultural richness, and a relaxing tropical vibe similar to Belize and Costa Rica, though much less traveled. Whether adventuring far afield or exploring crumbling ruins, you’ll find the rhythm of life here very easy-going. Whatever you do in Honduras, it’s best done at a leisurely pace.

With that in mind, take ten days to see the best of Honduras–this is the perfect amount of time to experience Honduras’s culture and landscapes. It also gives you plenty of opportunity to relax on the country’s very best beaches.

If you want to get out and about in nature, both novices and veterans alike will find the jungles and mountains of Honduras a true pleasure. The same goes for underwater adventures–a trip to the island of Utila is one of the most enjoyable, unique snorkeling of your life.
