With wild volcanic and jungle landscapes, atmospheric colonial towns and staggering archaeological sites, both Guatemala and Honduras offer diversity enough for everyone from bird watchers, to adventure sport enthusiasts, to history buffs.
Some regions remain utterly wild and free, while others were tamed by Mayans as far back as 400 BC. They left behind dramatic, inspiring and important archaeological sites such as Honduras’ glorious “lost city of Copán” and Guatemala’s Mayan temple city of Tikal, which rivals the world’s other grand pyramid sites.
In addition to the stunning ancient ruins, Guatemala offers a vibrant diversity of jungle landscapes, atmospheric Spanish colonial towns and famous indigenous markets.
Honduras’ biodiversity is spread across cloud-forested mountains, tropical rainforests, wildlife-rich lakes and two coasts – the Caribbean Sea on the north and the Pacific Ocean on the south through the Gulf of Fonseca. This area connecting North and South America has served as a cultural and biological corridor for millennia.
As part of the Mesoamerican Biodiversity Hotspot, Central America contains seven percent of the world’s biodiversity. That means travelers can expect stellar nature adventures in fishing, snorkeling, jungle treks and more.
From bare-foot resorts nestled among breeze-blown palms on white sand beaches, to mountain retreats with the ambiance of relaxation, Guatemala and Honduras have a menu of choices to delight everyone.
