  • Living onto beach

    "Initially we booked Blue Bayou Beach House for 5 nights. We were attracted by the location right next to the coral reefs and of course an affordable price. And we weren't disappointed. The house has a beautiful porch from where you can hum right into the corals. Just outside the house is a great wall with the most amazing corals. Lots of coral fishes. The house is a bit rustic, however charming. There is though one nuisance: Sand flies! You don't notice them, before it's too late. You don't see them, you don't feel, when they bite, but you will seen see the impact of them on your body. So be advised to take need precautions (repellents, baby oil,...). Before making the booking, we had a very positive correspondence with the owners, Deanna and Ed. Very responsive and very helpful. We felt confident throughout the engagement with Deanna and Ed. On the island we were welcomed by Mike, who is kind of a janitor, and he made sure we were put on a taxi (or rather a tuc-tuc) to take us to the beach house. Mike also made sure, everything was ok during our stay. Thanks a lot to Mike!! We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bayou Beach House very much, and we actually extended with it another 2 nights. There are lots of things to do on Utila. Definitely a place to return to...."

  • Villa Dorado

    "We stayed for two months, I wish we hadn't. The house is beautiful. Amazing views, lush forest, fresh fruits off the trees all great. We were told there was a generator in case of long power outages, it was not operational and no effort made to make it so. Also in case of power outages, the gas stove in the apartment was to be for our use, it was also out of gas and not filled for sometime. The power was out for 12 hours one time and 10 another. The housekeeper is wonderful. The beach property that was to be included with our own private beach was not available, an alternate plan was available but if we wanted to spend our days at Campamento we would have stayed at Campamento. The house roof leaks in many places, it needs some maintenance. We enjoyed walking up and down the hill to town, it is quite a hike up! Would we stay there again, probably not. When paying tip top rates, we expected tip top accomodations."

  • Relaxation and Adventure

    "Guanaja is a beautiful part of the world, and Wilmont Bay is perfectly suited to experience it at it's best. The snorkeling at the door step is among the best we've experienced, as are the sunsets—two green flashes in seven days! Travel in Guanaja is mostly by boat, which is an adventure in its own right, and Jorge will happily and skillfully get you anywhere you would want to go. While you are not alone at Wilmont bay, one could hardly be call it crowded. In addition to the two Cabins, there's just a few private homes in the area. The cabins are well stocked with all the necessities for an independent traveler (full kitchen, shower, fans, even an air conditioning if you need it) and are quite comfortable. Both Cindy and Jorge are wonderful hosts, and will make every effort to ensure you have a great trip. Bonaca is a fascinating and unique city built on two small Cayes--well worth the visit included in your stay, as is the near by waterfall (not included, but quite affordable). A trip along the coast by kayak is also quite rewarding—depending on the day, you may not see another soul. This isn't the place to go if you want to lounge on the beach (sandflies will not allow that) and be served hand and foot (this isn’t a resort, which for us was a large part of the draw). But if you are looking to relax, explore a near empty coastline, and enjoy healthy reefs just steps away, this is a great choice. For us, it surpassed all expectations. P.S.—Though you can get along just fine speaking only English, at least since Mitch, many mainland Hondurans now live and work in the area. As such, we found a bit of Spanish went along way in certain circumstances. So we’d suggest, if it is not your first language, you brush up."

  • 10 days in Paradise

    "I just got back from 10 days at the best spot on Roatan. This was my 2nd visit and I'm already starting to plan on coming back for a 3rd time. This is now my official favorite vacation spot. Sunset House is well situated on a beautiful stretch of beach between West End and West Bay. The house is beautifully maintained, air conditioned and has everything you'll want for your vacation, including a fantastic outdoor bar and barbecue. The grounds are gorgeous, with a lot of palm, banana and almond trees that provide plenty of shade. Water taxis pass by regularly so you can easily travel back and forth from West End and West Bay. West End has lots of shops and restaurants, and many dive shops if you're a scuba diver or want to learn. It's an excellent location for both snorkeling and scuba diving. West Bay is a stretch of beach at the end of the island with number of resorts and restaurants. I'd highly recommend going to The Grand Roatan at the very end by the rock cliffs. The food there was excellent and it's never very busy. It's a great place place to go for lunch and to snorkel, or for an evening meal."

Honduras Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Honduras Vacation Rentals

The climate in Honduras varies in the different regions. While it is generally tropical, the weather is cooler and more temperate in the higher mountain regions. Generally, you can wear lightweight cotton clothing all year long. You will need a good rain jacket especially if you are traveling in the wet season. Make sure that you also have one or two warmer items of clothing if you plan to visit the highlands. Typically, the wet season is from May to October. Tropical storms have been known to blow across from the Caribbean, bringing heavy rain and strong winds. The north coast is one of the most popular tourist regions; however, temperatures can get very hot and visitors are advised to use plenty of sunscreen and wear hats. The most popular travel season is during the drier months which are from November through April.

Activities and Attractions near Honduras Villas

Tegusigalpa has a beautiful historic city center. Colonial architecture can be seen in a number of the ancient buildings. Just outside of the city on one of the hilltops is a relatively new monument known as the Christ of the Picacho. From the monument site, you can enjoy great views out over the city. Another city that has well-preserved colonial architecture is the former capital of Honduras, the city of Comayaguan. Here you can roam the cobbled streets, visit the town plazas and see the quaint white-washed houses. Each year for Easter, there is a week-long celebration that is full of cultural festivities. If you have an interest in the ancient Mayan culture, one place you must visit is Copan. The Copan Ruins Archeological Park houses some impressive structures which give testament to the advancement of the Mayan culture. There is an Acropolis, the Court of the Heiroglyphic Stairway, and the Great Plaza.

There are several national parks and wildlife reserves where you can hike nature trails or join a guided overland tour. Canopy tours through the rainforest are quite popular. There are also various boat trips or kayaking excursions that can be enjoyed down the country's major rivers. There are also caves to go exploring. The beaches in Honduras are legendary and the Bay Islands are a tropical paradise. The coral reefs off the Bay Islands offer excellent scuba diving and snorkeling.

Getting to Honduras Beach Houses

Honduras is located in Central America just to the north of Nicaragua and east of Guatemala. The capital city Tegucigalpa is located in the southern region of the country. The nation's main airport is located just three miles to the southeast of Tegucigalpa. There are daily scheduled flights that operate to Miami in the U.S. For travelers staying in other parts of North America and Europe, your best flight options will be to get a connection via Miami. The airport is served by buses and taxis which can take you in to the city center. If you will be visiting the coastal regions, you can get a connecting domestic flight as this is the most convenient way to travel around the country. Roatan has a cruise ship port and many visitors arrive in the country here.
