Copan combines the charm of a colonial town with cobblestone streets and friendly inhabitants, and the magnificence of the most important Archaeological Park of the country: The Ancient Mayan City of Copan and the Mayan Sculpture Museum. It is located in the jungles of northwestern Honduras, a three-hour drive from San Pedro Sula. In Copan, the Mayas reached their most refined sculpture, leaving the longest hieroglyphic text, and the most fascinating collection of stelares.
Located on the northern Caribbean coast of Honduras, La Ceiba is the third largest city of the country. With a reputation as a party town, La Ceiba holds an annual carnival on the third Saturday of May and nearly doubles its size for the event, as it attracts over 200,000 tourists from all over the world. Fishing, as well as exports of bananas, pineapple, and grapefruit, are essential to the economy of the area. The mountain Pico Bonito provides an impressive backdrop to the city.
Thirty-five miles north of Honduras, on the Caribbean coast lies the submerged Sierra de Omoa mountain range, fountainhead to the verdant jungle islands of Roatan, Guanaja, Utila and a jeweled patchwork of smaller islands known as The Bay Islands of Honduras. They are tucked away from the mainstream, and remain today as some of the Caribbean's most beautiful, pristine and tranquil islands. This is a diver's paradise, boasting unspoiled reefs that are among the healthiest in the Caribbean.
San Pedro is blessed with excellent access via the most modern paved highways in Central America, has some of the best hotel infrastructure in the country and many attractive sites are within short distances from this industrial capital of Honduras. Don Pedro de Alvarado founded it with the name of "Villa de San Pedro de Puerto Caballos", and within the next 5 years was know as San Pedro Sula, with the name Sula deriving from the local dialect Usula, meaning "valley of birds".
This is the favorite vacation spot for beach lovers - The beautiful beaches of Tela are among the best in the Caribbean.
The town of Tela is only 31 miles away from San Pedro Sula, which is experiencing a major boom in tourism for its still uncrowded beaches and forests.
