1. As the last video of the series, we explore the hidden side of Honduras - beyond the popular tourist areas of Roatan, Copan Ruinas and La Ceiba. Honduras is home to many small towns, with a variety of beauty, cultural and activities to offer visitors. This video showcases just a few of these towns, including: Valle de Angeles, Comayagua, Lake Yojoa, Gracias and Omoa.

  2. Those seeking a cultural experience off the beaten track should consider The Lenca Trail, a 76-mile route spanning from Santa Rosa de Copán to La Esperanza in the Western Highlands. In a series of charming towns, visitors will encounter the Lenca people – one of the largest indigenous groups in Honduras. A great gateway to the route is the town of Gracias, home to colonial churches, a Lenca museum, historical fort, and a Farmer’s Market where the Lenca people sell their vegetables and pottery. Other offshoots of the route include San Manuel de Colohete and La Campa – where visitors can witness the Lenca people making their pottery using the same methods as their ancestors. http://www.colosuca.com

  5. Visitors to Honduras can slow things down with visits to two spectacular botanical gardens. One is the Lancetilla Botanical Garden in Tela – the second largest tropical botanical garden in the world. Lancetilla was established in 1926 as an experimental site by Tela Railroad Company, and boasts a large variety of plants from the Central American region as well as from other tropical areas throughout the world. The second is nestled on the island of Roatán – Carambola Botanical Gardens. Owned by a former Peace Corps volunteer, this garden provides an educational experience for its visitors among 40 acres of lush landscape.
