    To and From Puerto Cortés

    If you arrived in Puerto Cortés by bus from Tela or San Pedro Sula, you just have to change the bus at the terminal - which is not more than a parking lot. Drivers will help. The journey is short, something about half an hour. You can take the buses to Corinto, too, but then you'll have to walk all the way from the road along the main street. Well, "all the way" means 300m...

    On getting to Belize, see my tip in my Puerto Cortés page.

    Honduranian taxi

    I'm not sure if this shouldn't be posted as a warning and danger tip. But taxis in Honduras are not always up to date. When we went to Omoa from Puerto Cortez we had this old wreck. It sounded as if it won't make it the 20 kilometres and the interior was more than run-down. On one door the lining missed completely.

    But after some bargaining the price for the trip was really cheap and the driver was happy too - he obviously needed the money. And because of the bad road he had to drive carefully anyway. So we didn't feel very unsafe.

    boat to Dangrigo or Placencia (Belize)

    If you want to get to Belize from Honduras, a fast way is to go by boat. It will take you a few hours and it costs about 40 dollars. It's not a very comfortable trip, but you'll find it worth it once you arrive in Placencia!!
    Warning; the boat only goes once a week. We went on monday, but please check before you leave!! Another thing you want to keep in mind is; you should go to the immigration office in Puerto Cortes before you leave! There is no immigration office at the Harbour and you can't leave without a stamp. Please check the opening times.

    Port of Puerto Cortez

    Next to Omoa is the city of Puerto Cortez, Honduras' most important port. It's where the cruise ships arrive if they visit the Honduranian mainland instead of Roatan Island.

    The city itself isn't that interesting. Only the park in the center has some nice scultpures and a big banyan tree.

    Get a taxi that takes you to the more interesting destinations - like Omoa. But leave the port area. The prices get considerably cheaper outside. And don't forget to bargain.

    Old American school busses

    Public busses - somehow familiar

    Old American school busses get a second chance in Honduras. After their retirement in the USA they get driven down to Honduras and then a second life - maybe even longer than in the States - begins.

    Often they don’t bother to modify them at all. So in most cases you can find out where they have been used during their former life in the USA.

    Travel on to Guatemala and Belize

    Maybe once a week or so, small fishing speed boats will take you either to Livingston in Guatemala, or even to Belize.

    Ask around at the pier for info. This is a much shorter trip than going inland through the jungle, which can take a whole day. I have done both trips, they are equally interesting.
