Visiting the beaches of Honduras is an incomparable experience. The country has a wide variety of beaches for all tastes, from white sand beaches to beaches of dark sands, bathed by the warm waters of the Caribbean or the turbulent waters of the Pacific.
Honduras has around 91 Protected Areas that correspond to 27% of the national territory. It has a great diversity of flora, with the presence of more than 64 varieties of plant ecosystems, and fauna, among which the Guacamaya or Guara Roja, National Bird of the country.
Honduras is a territory with archaeological wealth almost in all its departments. However, it is in Copán, Valle de Sula, Intibucá, La Paz and Olancho that most of the archaeological sites are concentrated. There are more than 140,000 sites of archaeological interest that have not yet been registered.
754 bird species have been documented in Honduras to date, and there are at least 50 other sightings. There is a rich bird life, with many endemic species of Mesoamerica that coexist in the unique mixture that crosses and makes its home in the country.
The tourist areas have restaurants of international cuisine and American-style dishes. Honduran gastronomy is very varied, since it contains pre-Columbian, Spanish, Creole and, to some extent, African elements, as is typical of the entire Central American Atlantic coast.
During the more than three hundred years of the colonial period, the Spanish presence manifested itself in all activities of daily life. Now, Honduras is the country with the second largest tangible colonial heritage in all of Central America.
