Honduras Bicycle Touring
Back in 2010, I cycled through Honduras as part of my bike tour from Alaska to Argentina. During my time spent cycling on the Pan-American tour, I kept a blog post a day.
The thing is, I didn't exactly spend that long in Honduras before cycling into Nicaragua.
In fact, I only stayed in Honduras for one night in the end! I literally cut a corner off the country.
The decision to only spend two days cycling and one night in Honduras was more to do with the directness of the route than any other factor.
