Caribbean Honduras is the area of northern Honduras on and just inland of the Caribbean coast.
|Bay Islands (Bahia Islands) |
- 1 San Pedro Sula
- 2 El Progreso
- 3 La Ceiba
- 4 Omoa — small beachfront town with a Spanish colonial fortress.
- 5 Puerto Cortes
- 6 Puerto Lempira — the main town in the remote northeast.
- 7 Tela
- 8 Trujillo — founded in 1525, this is where Columbus first set foot on mainland America. Overlooks a beautiful bay with nice beaches against mountainous backdrop with a nature reserve.
This is a region of great contrasts. The Sula Valley in the west is the most densely populated part of the country. In the east, the La Mosquita region is a huge area of remote lowland jungle, including the UNESCO world-heritage site Río Plátano Biosphere Reserve.
Perhaps most well known to travellers though are the offshore Bay Islands. These offer some of the best diving and snorkeling anywhere in the Caribbean.
One of the best ways to see the southernmost Caribbean islands or surrounding South American islands is via a cruise.
