The art and craft work includes nice wood work (especially musical instruments), baskets, embroideries and cloth painting. You can also bring a box of cigars back from Honduras because the country is a big producer of tobacco. Shops are open from 9:00 a.m to 6-7:00 p.m, sometimes with a break between 12:00 p.m and 2:00 p.m. Shops are closed on Sundays.
The plato tipico (typical dish), offered in all restaurants in Honduras, is made of beans, rice, tortillas (corn flat bread), fried bananas, potatoes and cheese. On the cost, fish is excellent and very cheap. It is often served, as is seafood, with a snail soup composed of coconut. Sunday is the day of mondongo soup (tripes). Tropical fruit juices, composed of milk or sugary water are excellent. The best brands of rum are Ron Flor de Caná, Ron Plata and Yuscarán.
A word of warning to those who decide to stay near Mosquitia - the housing conditions are very basic, but a few days in the jungle with Indian tribes is really worth the trip. In Honduras, people do not joke about mosquitoes. Do not forget to bring sprays, creams and mosquito nets to protect yourself.
