Find out about travelling in Honduras, including Copan’s hot springs, Roatan’s paradise beaches and safety.
After an amazing week in Guatemala, it was time to cross the border into Honduras. The plan? To visit Copan and Roatan Island.
Copan is a small town made famous by the Mayan ruins nearby. While there we visited the Luna Jaguar Agua Caliente (hot springs). After an hour travelling on the back of a truck down bumpy, unfinished roads, we were all extremely happy to get off and take a dip!
What a beautiful place! Once across a rickety bridge, several different pools, each of different temperatures stretched out before us. They were all shimmering with crystal clear water. The hottest was around 90 degrees – too hot for us to handle… but there were a couple that were just perfect. It was like stepping into a perfectly warm bath. We spent a few hours there, drinking homemade cocktails, and rounded off the evening with a tasty Honduran BBQ.
