Porcino Pollo specializes in simple chicken dishes that will surprise you. I ordered the breaded chicken with a side of rice, and it came out perfectly. The chicken was crispy and delicately seasoned. Our server was extremely sweet and funny, and...
Sandy Bay, Honduras
Maya Key Island is a special place: a private island just off the island of Roatan, Honduras, it is privately owned and funded and serves as a sanctuary for rescued and donated animals that are local to Honduras, like the macaw and the jaguar....
Copán Department, Honduras
The hieroglyphic staircase at the ancient Maya site of Copan tells the story of the Copan dynasty in its entirety and is the longest inscribed Maya text ever discovered. I'm certain the sacrificial victims who were forced up these stairs to have...
Punta Gorda, Honduras
The less developed eastern end of the island offers much more solitude. There is a great spot not too far past the public access beach in Camp Bay where you can get the best rum punch (offered up homemade in a glass mug with a slice of pineapple)...
Carretera Principal, Sandy Bay 33166, Honduras
Tranquilseas Eco Lodge and Dive Center in Sandy Bay is a great place to relax. I love to snorkel and the coral reef is right in front of the lodge. The beach is quiet. The cabanas are set in a tropical garden. I really like the owners and the...
Col Satelite, La Ceiba, Honduras
Peaceful, serene getaway in the jungly mountains that border La Ceiba. Most people pass through this town en route to the Bay Islands but this hideaway is worth a night or two as is the rafting on the Rio Congrejal or the horseback riding. Oh, and...
West End, Honduras
Over the years prices on the island of Roatan have risen astronomically. Most tourist restaurants are charging what many typically think of as "western" prices. To avoid spending all your hard earned cash on food, hit up the street stalls. You can...
CA-11, Copan Ruinas, Honduras
This was the first of the Maya king ruins that I saw in Central America. It was an awesome beginning to an incredible trip. The carvings on the stelae under the simple protective coverings are marvelously preserved. Others, not protected are not...
Copan Ruinas, Honduras
Before even getting close to the entrance of the Copan Maya ruins in the morning one hears the raucous calls of the macaws. The staff at the ruins feed the various birds in the area and even provide nesting boxes for the macaws. Did you know they...
West End Road, West End, Honduras
The best meal in the Bay Islands, probably in all of Honduras is the chicken plate at Creole's. Ask any local expat on the island and they will tell you about this great little beach-hut rotisserie joint. Order the quarter chicken with 2 sides and...
Half Moon Bay, West End, Honduras
Most visitors to Roatan snorkel and sun themselves on the island's West Bay Beach, which can get pretty crowded (especially on cruise ships days). Get yourself some extra sand space by heading to the town of West End, just down the road and hang...
Barrio Santa Ana, San Pedro Sula 21102, Honduras
The night on the central square of San Pedro Sula, Honduras begins to to glow when the sun goes down, illuminated by the lights of the Cathedral. In the daytime the square bustles with life, street vendors, tourists, locals, old men visiting on...
San Pedro Sula, Honduras
These women worked all day, everyday, making four to five hundred tortillas. They took me in and tried to teach me their skill, but once again, I discovered that practice makes perfect. I have a lot more practicing to do to even come close to...
