Honduras Tours

Honduras Tours

Despite being the second largest country within Central America, Honduras is also one of the least visited.

Instead of being subjected to crowds and line ups, visitors on our Honduras tours are greeted by breezy open spaces that hold secrets to ancient civilizations while being surrounded by lush and dense forests with low rising mountains all around.

The Mayans are known to have occupied Honduras for thousands of years. During the height of their power, they constructed the Copan complex which is found near the furthest southern reaches of the Mayan Empire.

The Mayans are one of the most well known of Mesoamerican cultures, especially known for their use of hieroglyphics on temples. Copan'™s...   Read More

Name:
Martin Charlton

EDUCATION:
Bachelor's Degree in Geography; further studies in Archaeology & Anthropology. Life's real education happens outside the classroom.

LANGUAGE:
English and some French & Spanish.

TOURS LED:
Having led tours for Adventures Abroad for almost 25 years, there are few corners of the globe where Martin’s left a stone unturned: everywhere from North Korea to Nauru, Saudi Arabia to Sudan, Guinea-Bissau to French Guiana. With over 200 tours through over 125 countries under his belt, it might be faster to list the regions where he hasn’t led a tour.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
"My love of travel and infectious enthusiasm for different cultures has taken me to over 155 countries. The further off the beaten path, the better. For a favourite place: perhaps South Georgia Island, the Canadian Arctic, or Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. World's best city = Istanbul!"

ABOUT:
"Don't pack anything that you would be upset to lose, that needs to be ironed, or is encased in glass." - words to live by.

Name:
Jonathan Hodgson

EDUCATION:
BA in Psychology at McGill University; MBA at the University of British Columbia; self-educated passion for history and culture.

LANGUAGE:
English; conversational French; improving Spanish and Russian. And a decent Scottish accent.

TOURS LED:
I have led tours in over 100 countries over the last 14 years of working for Adventures Abroad on all of the continents except for Antarctica.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Where to begin? Each place has something that makes it a special destination. A few that spring to mind: Kaieteur Falls in Guyana; the snow-covered mountains of Ladakh, India; sipping tea in a chaikhana of the old town of Bukhara, Uzbekistan; and watching the changing colours of Uluru (Ayers Rock) at sunset.

ABOUT:
Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.

Name:
Victor Romagnoli

EDUCATION:
HBA English BA History

LANGUAGE:
Being able to speak several languages has made travelling an enriching experience; the conversations one can so easily slip into with locals - who come from all walks of life - adds greatly to my feel for a place.

TOURS LED:
Over a span of almost 30 years, I have lead tours virtually all over the globe.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Some of my favourite tours just come into being suddenly as a result of a request; someone will ask me to put together an itinerary that will include the highlights of several countries and the next thing you know we have, for example, a tour to Uruguay, Paraguay & Bolivia, or Lesotho, Namibia & Botswana. Sometimes I will be asked to arrange a detailed itinerary to just one region within a country - like a close up look at Sicily or Crete or the Basque Country or Newfoundland. Without the keen curiosity that so many of you travellers have, none of these "spontaneous" tours would come into being. But they do.

ABOUT:
I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey.

Name:
Chris Tripodi

EDUCATION:
University for Mathematics. College for Music. But the greatest education I've received has come from Earth while travelling. "Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled."

LANGUAGE:
I can ask 'Where is the toilet?' in 57 languages.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
80%. I need a new passport every 20 months.

TOURS LED:
West Africa to South Africa, El Salvador to Argentina, Samoa to Seychelles, Portugal to Romania, Jordan to Japan.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Departures hall.

ABOUT:
I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another.

Despite being the second largest country within Central America, Honduras is also one of the least visited.

Instead of being subjected to crowds and line ups, visitors on our Honduras tours are greeted by breezy open spaces that hold secrets to ancient civilizations while being surrounded by lush and dense forests with low rising mountains all around.

The Mayans are known to have occupied Honduras for thousands of years. During the height of their power, they constructed the Copan complex which is found near the furthest southern reaches of the Mayan Empire.

The Mayans are one of the most well known of Mesoamerican cultures, especially known for their use of hieroglyphics on temples. Copan'™s prominence is heavily displayed on the intricate carvings at the acropolis of the site. Perhaps the most impressive portion of the site is the 63 steps of the hieroglyphic stairway which has several thousand carvings to display the royal house, as well as the enormous stone faces of the stalaes.

As the Mayan culture declined, Spanish colonizers moved in starting in the Bay of Islands on the Caribbean side of the country. Moving westward along many of the rivers of Honduras, slaves from Africa were eventually brought in to work for the silver mines founded in Honduras. The faces of Honduras today is mostly from this time of history.

Though Honduras was a part of the Kingdom of Guatemala under the Spanish rule, there are only a few small colonial towns remain with cobblestone streets and pleasant plazas typical of the Spaniards. Wedged between the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, Nicaragua and Guatemala - Honduras is in the heart of Central America.

Honduras tours will undoubtedly call not only to someone keen on history, but also to the nature lover or eco-tourist. The dense tropical forests are home to extraordinary trees including mahogany, indio desnudo (gumbo limbo), chico zapote, Spanish cedar and fig trees. Beneath the thick canopy are animals such as the anteater, armadillo, coyote, deer, fox, peccary, pocket gopher, porcupine, puma, tapir, and monkeys.

But it is the national bird which garners the most attention: the scarlet macaw. Ranging from Mexico to Peru, the vibrant plumage of the bird as well as its noisy call of it is found naturally across Honduras but is also protected in the Macaw Mountain Bird Park & Nature Reserve. The innovative tropical bird reserve cares for rescued and endangered birds of the American tropics and is an excellent location to gain a greater knowledge of the birds of the region.

Recent narratives and histories of Honduras is what keeps most tourists away. Stories centre around crime and poverty, depicting regions with stats to be among the most dangerous cities in Central America. The truth is that while Honduras does experience crime, most intrepid travellers who exercise a bit of caution enjoy Honduras without a hitch. Friendly locals interact with smiles and genuine kindness.

Honduras might just be one of the best kept secrets of Central America. Join one of our Honduras tours to find out what all the excitement is about.
