DEL-Adventures in Nature: Honduras Paperback – February 13, 1998
Most people don't consider Honduras when they think of a trip that includes sea kayaking, exploring Mayan ruins, and snorkeling, but this Central American country provides these and many more adventures in nature, all with the slower-paced benefits afforded by a less "discovered" destination. This book not only can help travelers create a fun adventure, but it also educates them about how their trip can positively impact the country. Without becoming pedantic, well-seasoned Honduran travelers James Gollin and Ron Mader explain how "tourism is an integral part of environmental preservation" in Honduras as they delve into the largest tract of remaining forest in all of Central America and swim along the longest coral reef in the Northern Hemisphere. Chapters provide advice on places to stay, where to eat, and how to get from one place to the next. Interesting sidebars provide profiles of environmental projects and problems while allowing travelers to learn how to become part of the solutions.

"Honduras: Adventures in Nature" does not just list areas of the country and the Bay Islands that holds special interests to the traveler but gives precise details of how to get to the many different sites, what is available at each point of interest (as well as the surrounding a! rea), park fees but also information that only well seasoned explores would know, such as suggestions on particular qualified guides, lodging and meals. An extensive list of government and non-governmental organizations also adorne this well rounded book with contact information. The information is so personalised and current that this book will have to be kept updated and from what I understand, this is excactly what is being done. If you are wanting to make an enjoyable venture into this diverse country but want all the homework done for you in advance, then "Honduras: Adventures in Nature" is the publication that has done the homework for you.
