The closest to the equator I’ve ever been was Mexico. I’ve always wanted to go further down, really immerse myself in latin american culture and language. Really glad I read this piece….gives me a good idea of what hotel I wanna use.

Thanks, helpful entry! Some of them a bit above my budget, but planning to go and look for Hotelito Josue in Gracias, Honduras tomorrow.

Greetings Campbell, well, for us being a couple, it was cheaper and better this way. Keep in mind that most of these hotels will make cheaper if you get a single room. Prices are for doubles, please notice that. We always try to avoid backpacker hostels, which in most cases are over prices, but also, for the price of two bunk beds in a hostel we just got a small cozy room somewhere else. Happy travels! Enjoy Honduras!!! Keep in touch
