Hola, Honduras!

by Brenna Holeman








Copan Ruinas, Honduras
And just like that, five hours on a bus, two stamps of the passport, and three dollars for a Honduran entry fee later, I’m in a new country. My current travelling partner Meera and I have quickly settled into the tiny little town of Copan Ruinas, the gateway to the famous ruins of Copan. With little more than some steep stoned streets, souvenir stands, stray dogs, and an archetypal yet pretty little square, the town is still extremely inviting and comfortable, with locals smiling and eager to chat. A few laps around the park and some Mayan nut coffees later and we already feel like we can navigate our way around quite easily. I keep saying to her, “We’re in Honduras…!” Because that’s how it is, that’s how I always feel when I arrive in a new country – excited, bewildered, blessed.
 We’re off to explore the ruins tomorrow, and then I head to the coast on Tuesday…

How exciting to be in a new country! I’m itching like crazy to go diving in Honduras. Enjoy for me!!!

Yay – Honduras!! My favorite country. Are you heading to the Bay Islands at all? I really recommend it if you have the time/interest/finances. I just got back from my second dive trip there this year, and I’m relocating there semi-permanently (aka until I run out of money) in August. Can’t wait!

Andi – I will try to take lots of photos for you!

EM – That’s incredible!! I’m heading to the Bay Islands tomorrow. Any must-sees/must-dos?

Awesome! I see now you are headed to Utila though… I haven’t made it there yet 🙁 I have only been to Roatan. Utila is MUCH cheaper though, and a lot more backpackers and party scene. It really is as beautiful as it looks – the Bay Islands are gorgeous. If you are going to spend any time on Roatan, please let me know and I will send recommendations!

EM – Thank you! I don’t think I will get to Roatan on this trip, but it sounds really great as well…
