There is no real bad time to go to Honduras, it is a tropical climate with a wet and dry season. The climate varies from the mountainous inland to the Caribbean coast and so the best time to visit for both is February, just after the rains finish. At this time you can expect daytime temperatures to vary from late 20s/early 30’s and night time temperatures to be low double figures. It can be fairly humid year-round and significantly hotter inland.

Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.  

In the churches and cathedrals women should cover their heads with a scarf or hat and also cover their shoulders, while men should take their hats off.   

Language & Religion 

In Honduras the major language is Spanish but there are also several Mayan indigenous languages in use. English is spoken in some of the more heavily visited tourist sites but any Spanish you can learn beforehand will be very useful.   

Catholicism is the major religion in the country but Evangelism is on the increase. Many Hondurans combine ancient Mayan beliefs almost seamlessly with Christianity and the result can be a very interesting mix!  


Honduras is 6hrs behind GMT.

Food and drink 

As with much of Central America, Honduran food heavily features tortillas made from maize, however rice and potatoes are also important staples and are available in most places. Frijoles (or black beans) are also predominant and will be found accompanying many dishes. In the more popular areas, a wide variety of international cuisine can be found but there will still be many opportunities to sample traditional local food.  

Excellent coffee is available everywhere and local beers such as Gallo & Cabro are very drinkable. Imported wine is available in some of the more international establishments but be prepared for this to come at an international price.
