But Passplanet will, hopefully, be more than a free backpacking travel guide to Honduras
& Asia. My ambition is to make it a place where backpackers can freely exchange the latest info from "on the road" of the asian countries and communicate with each others. In the world of backpacking, information indeed changes with the blowing of the winds. But while a guidebook is out of date by the time it reaches the shelves, a web site can be updated daily.
Pass planet will strive to keep the budget information about Honduras warm !
But to achieve the above, we need your help & support. Passplanet is not supposed to be a single backpacker's journey and travel guide. There are too many trips ahead.
Honduras, Asia and the world are too vast to be covered by one individual. Let's share !
Everyone is welcome to join the backpacking adventure and submit travel information !
Passplanet is looking for new backpackers, budget writers, partners and ideas on a shoestring. And Passplanet also counts on you for its promotion. If you find it useful, please give the direction to other backpackers.
The more traffic, the more updated info in the future to backpack Honduras !
Passplanet is also a place of exchange related to Honduras. Beside all the forms which allow you to share your budget info about asian countries, experiences about a place, Passplanet also hosts a forum and a links section to other travel guide. You are welcome to submit your own travel web site in the latter and benefit from Passplanet's growing popularity in the world of backpacking on a shoestring.
Together, let's keep Passplanet as free & independent as a backpacker so more and more people can use this free travel guide to backpack
I wish you a good backpacking experience, on the site and around Honduras !
A dive in authenticity
Description of Honduras ?
With its cobbled villages, national parks, huge waterfalls,
colonial cities and local smiles, Honduras would offer a relaxed alternative to
busy Guatemala. Most people however come here for its busy Mayan ruins and diving
opportunities in Honduras
>> Why go to
Sharpen your discovery of the Maya
with very delicate ruins / Become a certified diver at the cheapest price
in the whole area / Take it easy on a
sandy beach / Snorkel among colorful fishes / Eat tons of free mango / Party all
night among backpackers / Then get off the tourist-track and see no foreigner
for a week / Trek national parks on your own in Honduras
>> Drawback of
The safety issues and lack of smiles on the North coast / The backpacking crowd
and lack of authenticity on Utila island / The
lack of Indian settlements and traditions / The cost to visit the attractions,
when paying the "tourist" price / The possible whole-day rain on the
north coast plus the heat & humidity in the lowlands / All those
"not-yet-open" or "not-easy-to-access" parks
>> Cultural Highlights
of Honduras ?
The delicate Maya ruins of Copan / The colonial
sights & colorful markets in the cities / The laid back atmosphere of a
Garifuna village / The carnival of La Ceiba (one week in May) /
>> Natural Highlights
of Honduras ?
Spotting a ray manta or whale
shark around the Bay Islands / Spotting a quetzal in La Tigra National Park /
The 373 species of birds in Lago de Yojoa and the 43 meters high waterfall
nearby / Kayaking around the mangrove / Descending rapids on the Rio Cangrejal
>> How long in
One week for the islands and the diving. Another two or three weeks
for the rest of the country.
>> Budget for
Around US$10 per day if avoiding any luxury or the expensive
>> Visa for
Honduras ? Not necessary. 30 days on arrival for most westerners.
>> When to go in
Year-round, except on the north coast which can be overflooded by
water between October & November (Hurricanes season). The islands and
beaches' towns are also more expensive when overflooded by tourists (holidays
and carnival times).
