They are much more interested in being friendly to both one another and to tourists. Perhaps most important of all, the laid-back attitude of the Hondurans is infectious. You'll soon discover yourself in a much more peaceful state of mind.
Things to Do in Honduras
Roatan Island has access to some of the most beautiful beaches you'll find almost anywhere. While you're relaxing on the beach, make sure to stop by one of the many small stands located along the beaches that serve coconut water straight from the coconut. These treats are inexpensive, delicious, and refreshing.
Other popular activities include snorkeling, bird watching, observing nature, exploring national parks, and watching the howler monkeys of Parque Nacional Jeannette Kawas. Utila especially is well-known among backpackers for inexpensive food and a great place to find a cheap Honduras hotel deal.
The clear waters of Honduras make diving and snorkeling a great adventure. While the waters are a bit chilly early in the morning, they warm up quickly enough.
