Is it worth it?

Thought about going somewhere different. Is Tegucigalpa worth visiting from the U.S?

Hello, the Humuya Inn is a beautiful little hotel with wonderful staff. That said, it's in a fairly decent residential area without much around it. That can be either good or bad depending on what you're looking for. There is a large mall (Las Cascadas) fairly close but it's not something you can walk to. Even though the residential area is touted as a nice upscale area you really should be walking around to far from the hotel. I have stayed at the Humuya twice and the locals I was with were not real fond of of the idea of walking due to safety concerns. That said, you will love the hotel. I'm more than willing to help if you have any questions as I have spent alot of time in Tegucigalpa and the surrounding areas..both in the more touristy areas and off the beaten path with my Honduran friends.

We will only be here for one day, a Saturday. We would like to go experience the most important sights and find some local eats? Any suggestions?

Hi I'm going to Tegucigalpa on March 28 with a friend who is from there. I'll be there for a month staying with her family. Any suggestions for day trips, points of interest, or shops to visit in the city. I already bought my ticket and now I'm starting to get a little nervous after reading all there negative comments. Are there any nice restaurants or hotels where i can escape if I need some privacy or just plain luxury.

Also is the water safe to drink and will i need an electrical converter. Anything you can think of, that I can bring to make my trip more comfortable please advise. I'll be waiting anxiously to here from you all

You should drink bottled water in Honduras. No elec conv needed if coming from u.s. see if your friend would like to go with you to the islands for a week, it would make a nice break. Also head up to copan to see the Mayan ruins for a few days, Hedman alas bus line is very good & perfectly safe if you go on your own. Have fun

I have stayed at the Intercontinental and it is a very nice hotel right next to the mall.

I just spent 10 days there on business and it was fine. I enjoyed walking to the Cathedral. The art gallery and the museum of identity were well worth the visit. You can visit Valle de los Angelas and Santa Lucia. I'm sure her family will assist you in planning your time.

You'd have lots of time to visit Copan and the islands. I second the recommendation of traveling by Hedman Alas. Your friend's family will also assist you with security issues.

Was just there a couple weeks ago. Agree with some of the other posts here. See Copan if you can. Love the Bay Islands. Valle de Angeles is a quaint little town to knock around in, and not too far out of Teguz.

Stay out of Comayaguela for sure, and no, don't drink the water!

If you need a break , the Intercontinental is fine IMO, and next door to the Mall MultiPlaza which is very nice.

Some interesting restaurants include TaContento for good casual food/great service, and a place called Baleadas for breakfast (good local food and inexpensive).
