Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Honduras is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It's the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
The Republic of Honduras, lying alongside the Gulf of Honduras, has some of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches in the Americas. It also has towering mountains, lush jungles and thundering rivers where you can go white water rafting if you're feeling brave enough. Its natural wonders will thrill and beguile you, so when you plan your visit to Honduras, car hire should be high on your agenda. Most people arrive via the international airports in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula or La Ceiba (Roatán is only for the islands), but it's in between the cities that the most exciting places are to be found.
Several ancient civilisations based themselves in Honduras at one time or another and left their mark. The most impressive ruins remaining today are Mayan, at Copán, and visitors can explore them directly before finding out more in the two excellent museums about them in the nearby town. This is also an area known for its exotic bird life, so look out for brightly coloured parakeets and birds of paradise flying overhead. Just a short drive away in Los Naranjos, by Lake Yojoa, you can see ruins left by the Lenca people, whose descendants still live in the southwest of the country and preserve some of their traditional ways.
Honduras is home to an astonishing number of different butterfly species and, though you can see them in the wild, the best way to experience them is in the dedicated butterfly gardens near the Guatemalan border. You can also see lots of wildlife by driving down the Caribbean coast through the banana plantations, or by going walking among the waterfalls in Parque Nacional Pico Bonito.
It's fair to say that Honduran drivers do not have a great reputation, but as long as you're patient and don't get irritated by honking horns, you can get around pretty safely. Talk to your car rental outlet about exactly where you plan to go before you choose your vehicle. A small car is the only way to get around narrow streets in the old towns but you'll want something rugged if you plan to explore the back roads. Honduras is always an adventure.
