What tour companies to use?

I am going to the Palma Real Resort March 10-17. Any suggestions on what tour company to use? I ahve heard of a few of them, Omega Tours, Garifuna Tours, Turaser Tours and the tours offered at the resort. I would appreciate any info I can get on any of these companies and the prices of the tours. Thanks a lot.

Crash -

We do a good deal of tour referrals and have had the best response from guests from referrals to Omega.

Omega you will find on the net at http://www.omegatours.hn/start.htm

Jungle River Tours at http://www.jungleriverlodge.com/

La Moskitia Eco-Adventures at http://www.honduras.com/moskitia/

Honduras Tourist Options at hondurastouristoptions.com/main_english.htm

Garifuna Tours at http://www.garifunatours.com/

I have not heard of Turaser before but from a prior post they seem to be the operator working from the hotel.

Have a great trip.

Hi crashfire...

Turaser has an office at Palma Real and we used them to book our four tours. They are a little more expensive (I calculated it to be about $5.00 more per person on average) however, for me the convenience was worth it. On two occasions we changed our tours, once due to weather and once because we changed our minds, and the staff gladly accomodated us. It was nice to be able to just wander into the office whenever we needed to book or change a booking and deal with someone face to face.

I don't know about those that Charlie mentioned, but with at least a couple of operators that advertised in the magazine in our room it stated the journey began and finished at a point in the La Ceiba. I may stand corrected, but it appeared as though you had to arrange your own transportation to and from the city; if that is the case Turaser would actually be lass expensive since they are door to door.

Crashfire,

We arranged several tours with Oscar at hondurastouroptions.com.

Prices, selection of trips were fantastic. They come to the resort and drop you back. They can arrange whatever your heart desires.

I can say they made our trip. The Cuero y Salado National Park was a highlight for anyone that went!

Wherever you go, and with whatever tour operator you choose, you will enjoy yourself!

Does anyone no if the La Moskitia Ecoaventuras company is still in business?? Their website shows it was last updated in 2001 and e-mails come back as undelivered.
