I'm a traveller writer who has spent her holidays at Honduras Shores Plantation six times. We've been here since Oct. 9th and will leave the 23rd.
I think we were here when climber from Florida was here. It is the rainy season here, and it has come down in sheets every night and often at times in the daytime. The 6km., road is a mess, but cabs still come. The road will be fixed when it stops raining, in fact the dirt and gravel are waiting beside the road.
In the dry season, it is a different story, the road becomes a typical cottage road at home, yes with potholes. It usually takes 10 minutes to get to Tela and a taxi costs around $7.
Again in any rainy season anywhere with the wet comes bugs... ask anyone in Ontario who suffered through an unusually wet May, June and July. Right now here you need bug spray, and long pants, shirts, shoes and socks during the dawn and dust.
Bugs love me, so I wear ode du bug all day, my pal hasn't a bite. In the dry season the beach is raked to get rid of sandfly eggs. Again dawn and dust there are some bugs around, but nothing serious. The beach is a pretty 10 minute walk from the Cabanas (I'm a fit 65) there is a pool there. Closer are four condos again with their own pool but just perhaps a five minute walk.
Other than that I agree with climber it is a great property and the maid comes in every day and does the dishes.
