Copan is one of the best places to visit in Honduras. It used to be an Mayan city for about 2,000 years but it was abandoned in the 10th century. At the peak of Copan it was home to over 20,000 Mayans. Copan has 2 amazing museums to show the real life behind the Mayans. Another place I would recommend would be Utila. It is one of the best diving spots in the world!! And there is other things like explore caves, ride horses, and more. And the last place I suggest you go is Roatan, it has amazing views of the caribbean sea and is great for snorkeling. There are also some places that include gardens and butterfly sanctuaries.
