Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Honduras.
Part of Central America, the country of Honduras may be small, but there are plenty of attractions here to keep tourists of all ages entertained. Whether you're interested in history and culture, prefer outdoor sports and energetic activities, or just want to spend your holiday relaxing on an idyllic beach, there also will be something in this former Spanish colony for you. The official language in Honduras remains Spanish, though many people speak some English, while the local currency is the Lempira. The US dollar is often accepted in tourist resorts.
There are several destinations to choose from in Honduras if you're looking for a beach holiday, although the most popular and the most developed can be found on the Bay Islands. These feel more like Caribbean resorts and English is the main language on islands like Roatan, Utila and Guanaja. Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands, and also where most of the hotels can be found. If you're travelling on a budget head for the west coast of this popular destination or try one of the smaller islands. Utila is always busy with backpackers thanks to its cheaper prices, though the resorts here are still significantly more expensive than on the mainland. Guanaja is the least developed of the resorts and home to an impressive offshore coral reef which is very popular with divers. Closer to the mainland are the pretty Cayos Cochinos islands, just a short ferry ride from the town of La Ceiba. Home to several beaches, the islands are also a protected marine reserve.
La Ceiba is also home to one of Honduras' biggest and best-attended local festivals, held in mid-May and featuring musical performances and a huge parade down the town's main street. One of the biggest tourist attractions throughout Central America, and Honduras is no exception, are the ruins of ancient Mayan villages and settlements. The best examples in Honduras are to be found at Copan, near the border with Guatemala. Featuring sculptures and carved buildings, these Mayan ruins are also home to a small museum detailing some of the artefacts that have been found here in archaeological digs over the years.
Tourism is taking advantage of the region's stunning natural scenery by offering eco-tours around Honduras. This is a great way to explore some of the more remote parts of the country if you don't have access to a car. La Ceiba is home to several companies that run day trips or longer expeditions into the Honduran rainforests.
