  1. Great episode, very informative I enjoyed it a lot! It’s also really fascinating knowing the various ethnic groups in Honduras and how they shape the culture and history, makes me want to visit to explore further!

    1. Thank you so much, Ina, for listening! Well I am sure you would really enjoy visiting the Mayan ruins in Santa Rosa de Copán, and take a ferry to the Bay Islands of Útila and Roatán. I’ll let you know next time I go so you can join me! 😉 There is so much to explore in Honduras, and I am so happy to know that people will gain further interest in visiting.
