We spent less than 2 days in Southern Honduras, most likely the ugliest part of the country. "GRINGO!!!!" was the longest conversation most of the locals wanted to have with us. Our friends Ed and Gaye cycled through Northern Honduras and seem to have found the best part of the country.
- Most of the country had amazing roads with huge shoulders
- Beautiful pacific coast (Playa Gigante)
- Friendly locals
- Generally pretty flat riding through farmlands with volcanos all over the place
- Wicked cross winds (Andrea is stoked to see wind farms in action, but not on a bike)
- The regional street food 'quesillo' turns out to be a tortilla with a slice of cheese on top, biggest disappointment ever. We're still getting over our pupusa addiction from El Salvador.
The most beautiful country in Central America (haven't been to Panama yet) we will definitely come back here, without our bikes. There are National Parks all over the place and if the sliver of country we have seen so far is any indication of the rest of the country, we would very much like to see it too.
- We're riding through a tropical zoo, monkeys, sloths, more monkeys, massive butterflies, poisonous frogs, snakes (I hate snakes).
- Pineapples, bananas and coconuts are growing everywhere.
- Friendliest locals in Central America (Least amount of Gringo shouts)
- The cleanest country we've been in since leaving Canada
- Highest number of dog chases
- Thin roads, no shoulders, high volume of traffic
- The most expensive country we've visited in Central America, we can't even afford to continue our 9am Coca-Cola tradition
