I had hoped to see a lot of jungle, unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate, and the itinerary didn't work out as planned. There are very interesting nature reserves, some of them are so reserved that no people are allowed in them.

Birds in Honduras

There are lots of bird species in Honduras. Unfortunately I saw only a small number during my trip, mostly because the weather prevented me from going on nature excursions. The exception was the excursion to the Laguna de los Micos, where I saw lots of birds.
