- Latin America & Antarctica
The world is pretty much split into people who know nothing about Honduras, and those that have vaguely heard of Copan – one of the finest Mayan cities in all of Central America. Well, as you probably guessed from the fact that we at OT are featuring Honduras, there’s so much more to the place than that.
So, to the sales pitch. White sand beaches as gorgeous as those in Panama, pristine reefs to match those in Belize, adventurous activities aplenty a la Costa Rica, the aforementioned ruins at Copan, charming locals and a lovely lazy, laidback vibe. And all this a two hour hop from Miami, but without the Americanisation that has altered the essential character of other countries in the region. Oh, and it’s pretty good value, too. Sold? We are.
Flight time from the UK 9hrs to Miami, 2hrs on to San Pedro Sula
Time Difference GMT -6
Combines well with Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico
