Colonial Tegucigalpa

By Honduras Traveling
Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras is a mix of colonial historical heritage and modernism of a contemporary metropolitan city. Despite its Spanish origins, it does not have the traditional square design of the streets surrounding the central square. Officially founded on September 29, 1578 under the name of Real de Minas de San Miguel de Tegucigalpa, it was not until 3 centuries later, on October 30, 1880, that it became the capital of the country. The city of Tegucigalpa has a wide variety of interesting places to visit, among them are cultural, historical, ecological, recreational and fun sites.

          Copan ruins
          If you want to go into tunnel buy ticket at entrance. Met two people who walked thru. I tried and a guy Came up asking for 20USD. It's only 40 lympias at booth. The site is doable in a couple of hours. Don't really need guide unless you are a full on history buff. Well worth a visit. Some really good protected stone images

          Don’t do it.
          There was not a seat for me to view. I was ready to climb down and there wasn’t a place for me to go after the stairs. I ended up sitting above board on deck and the tour guide squeezed inside to sit on the stairs. I feel there had been confusion, because we were left waiting without seating while the boat(s) came and went. Finally, the moment came to see underwater reef and animals/plants, but I didn’t have a place to sit or stand in the hull. Please don’t waste your money and time on this excursion. I booked it from my NCL cruise and had expected a great experience. I was so disappointed in the excursion AND the NCL excursion desk not believing me. So don’t think (like I did) that it’s a great experience just because you book through your cruise boat…. Ugh

          Highly recommended tour to San Juancito and Rosario with Rene
          Rene was an excellent, knowledgeable guide and we had an interesting day visiting San Juancito and Rosario Rene was very flexible and attuned to our interests particularly the wonderful ceramic factory. We felt very safe throughout the visit. I would definitely recommend

          The most detailed of Mayan ruins
          I went to a few ruins during my time in Central America, but this was by far the best in terms of the level of detail. It was really interesting seeing all the Mayan art, particularly the hieroglyphic staircase. Also, you get a panoramic view of the ruins that feature on the Honduras Bank note. It was also cool seeing lots of macaws.

          Well worth a visit
          Copan Ruins also known as Copan archaeology site is well worth a visit. I never tire of ruins, whether Aztec, Inca or Mayan. Our guide for the morning was the very knowledgeable Rex who has to be 65 but loves his job. What he doesn’t know about this site isn’t worth knowing. For 30 years as a guide, he knows how to capture a groups attention with stats, figures, anecdotes, humour and even a little musical jig (he’s also a musician). The site isn’t as large as others I’ve visited but certainly well worth visit. Allow 2 hours to explore. At the entrance there are a couple of shops for touristy trinkets or refreshments. Toilets are located here as well. Also here is a 3D map of the site showing the scope and extent of the structures. Built between 706 and 756 AD, it’s an impressive. The British researched the site around 1890 and today there are efforts to restore certain sections. The macaws that fly around the area are certainly eye catching but like cockatoos, they can get a bit mangy with feathers dropping out and mites attacking their skin. There are a few places where food is put out for them to feed on, which is nice as a tourist but I wonder if they become reliant on this handout. Well worth having a guide here and understand the history and daily machinations of the community, how they

          Really nice day out.
          Great visit, there's a tractor ride up the hill and a gentle walk down. Lunch was delicious mixture of Honduran food, with wonderful service. The guide was passionate on the subject of coffee which was totally infectious.

          Colorful display of murals
          A little walking is required to see all the many locally painted mural on the walls of residences and shops around the town. Cobbled streets. Went there on a Monday, so very few tourists. The plaza is a local hangout with little vendor stalls. At the plaza square is where you will find a few vendors selling local wines and chichi, a fermented fruit drink.

          Experience of a lifetime
          I can’t even express the amazing time we had here. An encounter with hugs and kisses and an awesome snorkeling experience with the dolphins. The staff obviously cared deeply for the animals and made the experience one I will never forget.

          Morning Visit
          Visited here in the morning when they first open (08:00) and spent a couple hours with an onsite guide to learn about all the various plants, animals and fruits. Truly fascinating place and highly recommend you include this in your visit to Tela/La Ceiba.

          Great experience and servide
          Great view of the reef and marine life. A narration would have been nice. We were picked up outside the cruise dock and had transportation for the day. Our driver, Henry, was very gracious and took us to sites we were interested in.

          Greatest tour of the Roatan reef
          Went on a tour of the Roatan reef with the Glassboat tour, simply fantastic ! Great way to discover the reef’s amazing treasures, saw so many species of fish and even divers. A great excursion for the whole family, this is so amazing and made us feel like part of the ocean.

          Best food in Copán
          We visited Finca San Lucas for lunch and not only was the food delicious but the scenery was amazing. Enjoying the beautiful view while relaxing after lunch was great. I highly recommend it❤️

          One of The Most Important Places in Honduras
          This is one of those places that you must go when you visit Honduras because of the beaches, the rainforest you can meet many kiand of animals, you can dive, swim. Everithing is perfect in this place.
