The press team continues its tour of the spectacular tourist sites in Honduras, exactly in the municipality of Tela, department of Atlantida.

On this tour we appreciated the beaches of Tela, an impressive place with very friendly people, a cool atmosphere, a beautiful view from the Sherwood Hotel. On the shores of the sea are the sales of handicrafts, people who are dedicated to the elaboration of braids


After a comfortable stay at the hotel, people can take a tour and visit Miami Beach in Honduras, which was founded in 1973, with green mangroves, lots of wildlife and hundreds of birds.


Its name is due to the fact that it has a resemblance to the beaches of the City of Miami, United States. Those who predominate in this area are the Garifuna community on the shores of Los Micos Lagoon in Tela, in the Jeanette Kawas Park area.


Within this area, 45 families live in red mangrove houses, this culture preserves its traditions intact and its natural reserve.


Here are the best fishermen in Honduras, the best restaurants to eat delicious rice and beans with fresh fried fish. Another famous dish is the fish soup, rich coconut bread, snails, and garlic shrimp.


But this adventure continues with the boat tours to visit Tela, you can find different tour operators and boatmen that go to the Parque Nacional Jeannette Kawas on the Punta Sal peninsula.

Come and take advantage of all the tourist, recreational and rest offers for everyone. The prices are accessible to all, we are waiting for you", said Larissa Cali, Honduran Tourism manager.


The price is 650 lempiras, which includes guide service, transportation, a snorkel mask, and a cooler so you can bring your drink.


The rocky cliffs are also added along the way, which consists of passing between them. These cliffs are small keys, where different types of birds feed on fish and roam the entire area at different times of the year.


As if that were not enough, they will have the opportunity to go through the tunnel of love. A rocky hole, which passes from one end to the other, being a unique experience for all those lovers of the extreme.
