San Pedro Sula
Sorry, as of 2012 Bonsai is closed. Try either of the two Sushi Ito locations instead.Bonsai is a place I visit frequently when I am in San Pedro Sula. The sushi is always fresh and I always eat vast amounts of it. This is a two-story restaurant with exceptional service. Try the Titanic sushi boat- it is enough to fill up any party of four with a...more

My tips here and of any guide book may be innacurate, since things are changing and Honduras has been improving a lot its systems of transportation, which is excellent news. So, you had better check locally for any information on transport to/from and around.more

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,...more
Finally something exciting - boat to...
The reason why I got into Puerto Cortes was to find the boat that goes to Belize. I was extremely lucky as I accidentally arrived to town on Monday, and the boat to Belize goes only on Tuesdays - weekly. Finding the port was a challenge (as everything else in Honduras). As my receptionist said, the port is located 1/2 hour away by walk from the center. As I walked in the port direction, I saw nothing resembling an international port. For some reason, I expected to see some signs directing me towards the port or that I will see boats that will be an indication I am in the right place. Of course I saw none of that (when will I learn) - but I saw an interesting fish market. As I was looking around and smelling the fish, one guy approaced me and asked if I wanted to go to Belize. How did he know???? Well they always do in Latin America - they read me like a book. Anyway he gave me all the info, and I was at the same place at 11am tomorrow. The boat did not leave until 1pm but I did not care as I had fun there, looking at fisherment bringing all kinds of fish and talking to locals and other passengers.
Boat finally left at 1pm, ride was phenomenal, in 2 hours of speedy ride we made it to Belize - unforgettable experience!!!
