Jan 29, 2009 - Comayagua to Tela, Honduras

It was a bright sunny morning and both of us seem to be pretty much recovered from our little bout of flu or whatever it was. Before leaving town we stopped at a farmacia in a modern mall to see if I could obtain some medication I was soon going to run short of. It was not available in Panama, Costa Rica or Nicaragua but they had it here. Of course, like Mexico, no prescriptions are necessary, You can get pretty much anything you need right over the counter. Once underway we soon began climbing out of the valley where Comayagua lays and...

Jun 13, 2008 - Tela, Honduras

The boarder crossing going into Honduras was trying to say the least. Not only do they not give a shit whether or not you visit Honduras, they actually make it hard for you! Never the less after two days of trying and help from a border custodian named Armando we were finally on to country # 4. Our first day we headed into the coastal town of Tela. It is one of three major cities that line the Northern Coast. Normally when we come into a town like this with a large selection of places to stay, we just park the car and walk around till we...

Oct 9, 2006 - I've hit the Caribbean!

Hola again, A quick entry to bring you up to speed. I went out to these natural hot springs outside of Copan yesterday. It was supposed to be quite picturesque and gorgeous with two pools to laze about in. Well, the setting was nice, the pools very ordinary and they weren't anywhere near as hot as I thought they would be (even though I know I AM a cold frog..) But what they did do was put on a fantastic bbq with these amazing mixed shishkabobs (anyone know how to spell that one?) that were like a fiesta in my mouth. All meals were eaten in...

Aug 5, 2006 - Finally Left El Salvador!!! - Tela, Honduras

Well it took us forever and a half, but finally we got our asses off the comfortable couches at Casa Frolaz, and caught the bus up north. It was nearly impossible to leave Santa Ana though. Javier, the guys who runs the hostel, makes his house not only a second home, but better than home. We drank with the guy, went on trips to his coffee plantation, went out to the bar, ate dinner .... all inclusive! Besides that we met an excellent aussie girl, who was ready to shoot the shit for hours. Best nite was our last nite in Santa Ana, the four...

Jun 15, 2006 - Utila: the greatest of the Bay Islands (Honduras)

Utila: After saying our goodbyes at the Hogar we headed out with our massive bags (one week later they are already 10lbs heavier) to catch the direct bus to la Ceiba. We were super exctied that we caught the bus just as it was leaving! However, it broke down 15 min out of La Ceiba! Due to Janelle need to relieve herself, she made friends with a local female who helped us hitch a ride in the back of a pick up for the rest of the way! (it was life or death...we were going to miss our ferry!) Instead of taking the ferry we opted for the...

Apr 7, 2006 - Honduras: Puerto Cortes

There will be no photos of this port. After a crazy 5 hour ferry ride from Palencia in Belize we arrived in this major shipping port for Honduras. It was suppose to take 2 hours but the immigration process kept us held up for an additional 3 hours on the boat. The water was fairly choppy and one by one the little ones on board fell sick with relentless vomiting. We started to take bets on who was next! Luckily the adults made out OK but we got in too late to catch our connecting buses so off to San Pedro Sula we went after a nice dinner by...

Mar 24, 2006 - Long haul to Tela

12 hours on the bus and we managed to make it across Honduras!!! We arrived in Tela late last night. It was worth the haul though because Tela, of course is so very picturesque. In the hour that we were out of our room this morning we met the nicest man from New Jersey and he offered to take us around the town. Being that David and us are about the only travelers around he kind of fathered us about the ins and outs of Tela. He is an ex-criminnologist, now professor who has traveled here 22 times in 15 years. He is now building a school up...

Oct 3, 2005 - A weekend of Caribbean sunshine & partying in Tela

After spending last weekend stuck in La Esperanza with a stomach infection, it was a welcome relief to swap the cold of the mountains for the warmth of the beach & Caribbean sea this weekend. As it was quite a distance to Tela & the fact that Honduran buses only seem to run on mornings & early afternoon, Rosie, Caroline, Rachel & myself decided to leave La Esperanza on thursday afternoon & spend the night in San Pedro Sula. This way we were able to make the short trip to Tela first thing on friday morning so we had the luxury of two full...

Jul 23, 2005 - Honduras, fourth week, Spanish classes

Its me--I'm still alive. Still in Honduras , mainly in the Northeren part near the caribbean sea..in Tela. Here I've been enjoying the local town life, sampling garafuna food and have taken a couple excursions. Mostly I've been in classes for two weeeks reviewing everything I already forgot in Spanish. But each time I have classes I understand the language a little better..even if I can't speak it very well yet. One of the excursions was to Isopo Nat Park where two by two the group set off in kayaks to explore a river that winds through a...
