Thirsty Thursdays: Touring Sol de Copan, the German Brewery in Copan Ruinas, Honduras

I spent over two weeks backpacking in Honduras and our time in the country was a pretty eclectic mix. I have to admit I loved the country and was really delighted we took a bit longer there to explore it. We spent some nights staying in the humongous big cities of Tegucigalpa (the capital) and Read more about Thirsty Thursdays: Touring Sol de Copan, the German Brewery in Copan Ruinas, Honduras[…]

World Borders: How to Get from Belize to Honduras (Ferry from Placencia to Puerto Cortes)

I had already dipped in and out of Honduras before I visited Belize so this was my second time to enter the country. After a great week in Belize (including touring ATM caves, staying in San Pedro and Belmopan) we decided to get the boat to Honduras which only leaves once a week. So you Read more about World Borders: How to Get from Belize to Honduras (Ferry from Placencia to Puerto Cortes)[…]

Backpacking in Honduras: Top Ten Touring Tegucigalpa, the Topsy Turvy Capital City

Time for a load of “T”s. Tegucigalpa doesn’t typically attract tons of tourists. There’s no hostel, there ain’t no backpacker scene and there are no major landmarks to lure casual travellers in. Undoubtedly it was those three things that spurred me on to visit Tegucigalpa and discover what this place is all about. Similarly to Montenegro’s Read more about Backpacking in Honduras: Top Ten Touring Tegucigalpa, the Topsy Turvy Capital City[…]

World Borders: How to Get From Honduras to Nicaragua (Tegucigalpa to Leon)

Almost everyone you meet will travel through Central America overland and we did the same. We started off in Mexico City and crossed every border overland (except for the Belize to Honduras which was by boat). After exploring Tegucigalpa and staying in the Hotel Linda Vista, I decided to head straight for Nicaragua – I Read more about World Borders: How to Get From Honduras to Nicaragua (Tegucigalpa to Leon)[…]

Getting My PADI Licence at Utila Dive Centre, Honduras

“I’d like to be under the sea in an octopuses garden in the shade” – Ringo Starr (The Beatles) I must be honest and say that getting my PADI diving licence was never high on my travel “list”. Yes I loved my life at sea working on boats, but I preferred being above the water Read more about Getting My PADI Licence at Utila Dive Centre, Honduras[…]

My Trip to San Pedro Sula, Honduras: The Murder Capital of The World

I’ve been in some so called “murder capitals of the world”, hell I’ve even worked in one, Belfast (and played football in North Belfast which sadly once held the unwanted honour of highest murder rate in Europe). Forgive my Northern Irish blood here but how dangerous can San Pedro Sula in Honduras be? Quite a Read more about My Trip to San Pedro Sula, Honduras: The Murder Capital of The World[…]

Ziplining in Parque Nacional Pico Bonito, Rio Cangrejal, Honduras

Honduras has been one hell of a roller coaster ride for me. After the madness of diving in Utila, surviving the world’s most dangerous city San Pedro Sula and exploring ruins and birds in Copan, it was time to actually chill out in the awesome national parks at Rio Cangejal. Or was it? What was going to Read more about Ziplining in Parque Nacional Pico Bonito, Rio Cangrejal, Honduras[…]

Relax in Nature: Staying at La Villa De Soledad in Rio Cangrejal, Honduras

Travelling in Central America continued to surprise. After a crazy week of diving off the coast of Utila (booked through Utila Dive school and stayed in the Mango Inn), we got the boat (catamaran) back to mainland Honduras. Rather than heading straight for Lago de Yojoa or Tegucigalpa, we decided on a night in La Ceiba. Read more about Relax in Nature: Staying at La Villa De Soledad in Rio Cangrejal, Honduras[…]
