I lived in Tela, Honduras for a year (1994-1995) on a student exchange programme. I was living in a homestay situation during this time. I returned for another three months, two years later, (over Christmas 1996) this time living in La Lima (near San Pedro Sula) with my then boyfriend. I have travelled a fair bit all over Honduras and think it is a fantastic country with a vibrant culture.
If you are planning a trip to Central America then you should definately consider Honduras as a place to go!

Approximately 90 years ago, Honduras became the largest banana exporter in the world and the sleepy, quiet town of Tela became the banana port. Today, the town still has the charm of clapboard houses built on stitlts but people now come for the beaches instead of the bananas.
