Honduras - 4 Months

I spent 4 months in Honduras, spending 3 of those scuba diving on the Carribbean island of Utila.

Before heading to Utila we visited and camped out in the Celaque National Park, next to gracias, with its pretty cloud forests and four mountain peaks.

After the park I went to Utila, originally only for a week but I loved the diving so much I decided to stay and train to be a divemaster. I did tonnes of diving, with plenty of drinking mixed in, and saw turtles, a 9ft nurse shark, some whale sharks between 20-30 feet, some lesser spotted rays, sea horses, squid, many dolphins and tonnes of pretty fish.

After I had completed my divemaster I stayed and worked for 3 or 4 weeks before leaving the island to continue traveling.

Once back on the mainland I visited another national park called La Muralla, located at la Union, in the heart of the country with some more picturesque cloud forest.

I quickly passed through the capital Tegucigalpa, a big chunk of concrete with zero attractions.

Then we crossed into Nicaragua
