Old houses in the center of San Pedro Sula are disappearing. Very few have been restored and many owners have chosen to demolish them instead to build commercial buildings and restaurants. Walking through the city I found this old house, which was being emptied by a truck after three years of being uninhabited. I immediately saw the furniture and asked if I could enter. When I did, one of the first things I saw was a piano with the music sheets still attached. It looked like someone had been playing it just a few minutes earlier. Time stopped in the corner of this house and I was able to immortalize such a beautiful musical instrument in my mind before it became history.
After taking so many trips to the island, I was finally able to travel like a tourist. I saw more detail of its corners, and Amapala is a place where time passes, excellent for meditation and relaxing.

The Cathedral of Tegucigalps has undergone a restoration of its walls, dome and clock. Built in the 18th century, the clock in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Tegucigalpa, which was installed 133 years ago, started working again after it was repaired after being out of use for 72 years. The Guatemalan expert Antonio Ceron made clockwise and move back to the bells sounded to give time to the thousands of passersby who daily spend on the cathedral in the historic center of the Honduran capital.
The island of Utila is the cheapest place on the planet to take the Open Water, Advanced or Dive Master courses. With increbiles prices (170 euros for all open water courses), the cheap prices do not mean that the quality of teaching suffers. Most of the diving sites here are very professional, with good safety measures and spectacular scenery. The reef that runs from Belize to here is the second largest in the world after Australia. You can see real forests under the sea and catch amazing glimpses of wildlife like the whale shark. A tip: you do not go in the rainy season, where the water is a bit murky. A must if you're traveling through Central America.
This area has become one of the most important tourist centers of Honduras (second only to the areas on the coast of the Caribbean and the islands), due to its history as a colonial city. In the city center you can find the Plaza Central, where you can see the mayor's office (built during the sixteenth century in a Neoclassical style) and Comayagua Cathedral, which is the most important tourist attraction of the city, being one of the largest and most beautiful in Honduras. I did not think it was up to the standard of other places (Granada in Nicaragua, for example) but the advantage is that it is very well connected, 80 km north of Tegucigalpa and it is a safe town (which is quite rare in Honduras). You can also hike pretty easily to Lake Yojoa.
Situated on the Caribbean coast, in northern Honduras, about 7 kilometers from the city of Tela, based on the size and variety of its flora, is the second largest tropical botanical garden in the world, with species found throughout Central America. There is no public transport to arrive here, so we had to negotiate the taxi price. In one morning you can see everything without any problem.
Roatan means Celestial Kingdom, and this place is the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras. It is situated between the islands of Utila and Guanaja. It is 45 kilometers long, less than 8 km at its widest point, and is situated 30 miles away from the coast of Honduras. The capital of Roatan is Coxen Hole, which is the main town on the island, and has the largest population. There are also some important French towns here, such as West End, West Bay, Punta Gorda and Oak Ridge. The Bay Islands are a popular destination for tourists who want to take part in various types of sea-related activities, most often diving. Roatan is the largest of the three islands, and it has an international airport, as well as a port to export and import products to and from Honduras. Roatan is one of the areas with most foreign tourism in Honduras, in addition to Copan and La Ceiba.
Immaculate Conception Cathedral of Comayagua, dates back to the years 1634 and 1711, and it is one of the most representative architectural monuments of colonial architecture, being the largest and most beautiful of all the cathedrals that were built in Honduras. It has four altarpieces, with a fantastic high altar with wood carving that are covered in sheets of gold, some with exquisite paintings and other beautiful pictures. There is a floor with a the form of a which has three naves, all covered with barrel vaults and hemispherical domes. It is asymmetric as a single bell on the left side with four floors.
Tela, on the Caribbean shoreline, is the most popular destination. It's a perfect place to relax on the country's most beautiful beaches. The program is delightfully monotonous: Packed with seafood and long hours in the sand, interrupted only by swimming in the emerald waters. The best beaches are located east of the city. For a dollar you can hire a boat to take you to Punta Sal National Park.
