This vibrant country often doesn't make the list of must-see places to visit in Central America due to its dangerous image. But the reality is that it is actually a colourful and fascinating place with an enormous amount to offer intrepid travellers. After a decade of terrible violence, Honduras has begun the journey back from the abyss. And while the challenges ahead are still significant, things have not looked this positive for years.

Top attractions include the Maya ruins of Copán, which is a must for culture vultures. If you yearn to explore the stunning underwater world then pristine diving is on offer at the Bay Islands. That's not all, if you want to explore a truly  stunning landscape then the majestic scenery of its national parks will impress you. Be sure to tear your eyes away from the beauty so you can take a unique holiday selfie.If all that is not enough to tempt you and you still need another reason to come here, then another major plus is that a trip here is easy on your wallet. In fact, Honduras is one of the cheapest countries in the region, and you'll be able to do activities for a fraction of the price you'll pay in its neighbours. Of course it is important to take care in the cities, but other than that, Honduras is back open for business and just waiting to be discovered and adored.
