Accommodation and Hotel Guide to Honduras
Budget Jungle Lodge near La Ceiba
Camping is not an option chosen by the majority of Hondurans, and
there are not an abundance of campsites in the country. However Honduras
is covered in national parks, and reserves, spreading from coastal
areas to more remote inland regions of the country. Many of these
national parks do not have facilities for sleeping, but do allow visitors
to camp. People wanting to camp in Honduras should be equipped to
deal with little or no camping facilities.
HOSTELS - BUDGET HOTELS
The hostels and the lower prices hotels are known as hospedajes and
pensiones within Honduras, and are the cheapest options for budget
travellers in Honduras. Prices can vary from US$2 to US$20, ranging
from a simple dorm room with shared bathroom, to a basic room with
a private bathroom. Honduras can have a very hot climate, and therefore
it is important to ensure that the room is equipped with a working
fan. This type of accommodation will more likely be found in the more
popular destinations in Honduras such as Copan, the Bay Islands and
several other of the Caribbean coastal towns, however sometimes basic
accommodation might be the only option in the smaller remote towns
MID RANGE HOTELS
Moderately priced hotels range from US$20 to US$60, and similarly
to the hostels will be found in the more urban areas, and the areas
visited by more tourists and business people. The rooms are clean
and offer more amenities in them such as air conditioning and cable
television, private bathrooms. The hotel will normally have a restaurant
Luxury Hotel in San Pedro Sula
Located in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula and the Bay Islands you find
the more luxurious hotels of Honduras. Tourists can pay anywhere from
US$80 to as much as US$1300 per night for suites. These are five star
hotels, with immaculate rooms with modern furnishings, private bathrooms,
air conditioning, room service, and the hotels often have comforts
such as swimming pools, tennis courts, bars and restaurants and gyms.
The Bay Islands are a group of three islands located off the coast
of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea. One accommodation option on these
islands is dive resorts. Some of the best diving in the world can
be found in the reefs surrounding these islands. Most Dive Resorts
are deluxe hotels, which offer weekly packages instead of nightly
prices, including meals and two boat dives per day. For those looking
for a relaxing time at the beach with an abundance of opportunity
to dive, an all-inclusive package might be an ideal situation.
In most locations of Honduras for long-term visitors a rental house
could be an attractive option. Though at most times you need to look
for a vacant house or apartment locally once arriving in a location.
It has though been becoming more and more popular in the Bay Islands,
San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa to be able to find rental houses advertised
on the Internet and through online newspapers and newsletters. If
you are considering a longer-term vacation to Honduras be sure to
look into renting a rental home as a base to explore Honduras.
