Diving in Utila was as cheap as the rumors lead us to believe. We did 12 dives each (six days) and the total for all the dives was about $530, around $25 for a two tank dive!  The diving in…

When we left for this trip we debated wether to pack our dive gear since it takes up a lot of space and diving in many places can quickly bust even a generous travel budget. Since the XP has so…

Thanks to Fernanado Llort, a famous El Savadoran artist, La Palma is a colorful village in the mountains near the border with Honduras. He moved here in the early 1970s. After a beautiful ride up winding mountain roads, I wander…

Honduras- Feeling hot, hot, hot

It was over a hundred degrees in Copan Ruinas with stifling humidity, so why we decided to go to hot springs in the mountains is still a little bit of a mystery to me, but when you are traveling, hot…

Honduras- Copan and Copan Ruinas

Honduras has a really bad reputation among overlanders as having horrible border crossings and corrupt cops. Also, being the murder capital of the world does not help sell it to travelers. You can understand why most people chose to cross through…

Internet in Honduras

Internet in Honduras is cheap! We had had trouble finding reliable and fast internet in El Salvador, so when crossing the border in Honduras, we decided we wanted to try if a SIM would be worthwhile to get better access…

Many overlanders decide to drive straight through Honduras and complete two borders (El Salvador and Nicaragua) in one day.  The overlanders that do enter Honduras usually do so through the Copan crossing from Guatemala.  Since we wanted to hit some…

We spent exactly a week in Honduras. Crossed the border on a Monday, which went all very smoothly. However, when we tried to get money from a bank with either our debit card or our credit card, it did not…

You thought our stay only four days in El Salvador was short? Haha, good joke: we crossed Honduras in 4 hours !
 
It must be said that many of the travelers we met in Guatemala we had warmly recommended to stay in…

After seven months in Mexico, we spent one month in Guatemala, one week (!) in El Salvador, and two weeks in Honduras. I wanted to write about these countries politics and past, but I won’t. It’s hard to write an…

Honduras: a mixed bag

Read the original post and follow Van en van's overland adventures on their website: Van en van.


A lot of overlanders skip Honduras, mostly because of widespread police corruption on the 100-km Honduran stretch of the Pan-American highway, and the country’s reputation as the poorest and most dangerous in Central America. We decided to do a basic…

Onto Honduras

The El Salvador-to-Honduras border crossing at El Poy was our worst one yet. We were stamped out of El Salvador in about 25 minutes, but the Honduran side took a full three hours. While it only cost us 60 lempiras…
