The adventurous among you should wake up early and head out before breakfast for a hike through the Merendon hills (the hills to the north are the closest), only a 15-minute drive away from the hotel. These verdant slopes offer a quick immersion into the region's rich ecosystem and an impressive view back into the city, especially when the first fingers of dawn begin to spread. After such a hike, a good, healthy breakfast is in order, you can give a try to our famous (local-style burritos) at Baleadas Express on Avenida Circunvalacion. Later you can go to Zizima Water Park to refresh yourself and enjoy the different attractions this park possess. If you are hungry you can have lunch at Bambu, InterContinental restaurant, this delicious dishes will delight you.
Start your afternoon with an insight into our rich history by visiting the Museum of Anthropology and History. A few streets away to the south are the city's green lungs: Central Park. Here you'll see locals selling an array of merchandise or putting on improvised performances for a small donation. Nearby is the Municipal Palace and the city's most distinctive landmark, our unmistakable cathedral. You're now in the oldest part of the city, founded in 1536 by Pedro de Alvarado. You'll soon notice its distinctive Spanish roots. Later, hop in a taxi and head to Pastor Fasquelle Nature Museum, where you can discover more about the national parks we have, our fauna and flora. Later, you can head to the Guamilito Market where all kinds of arts and crafts are laid out for you. Follow your nose to the delectable fresh taco stalls for a great snack.
After such a busy day you deserve a real treat. So round it off in style by choosing from the diverse array of international cuisine the city has to offer. If I may make a suggestion: if you already enjoyed our NAU Lounge, you can visit the Centro Social Hondureño Arabe, also an exclusive club for the city's well-to-do that has its own sushi bar, lounge bar and restaurant Gourmet Mediterraneo, offering sumptuous gourmet food in a refined setting. Have a nice and enjoyable time watching a play at the Saybe theater and called it a day.
If you come to San Pedro Sula, you must not leave without trying the famous baleadas, a flour tortilla with fried beans and cheese or butter. The best place to it them is Super Baleadas.

DID YOU KNOW ?
Honduras means 'deep waters' and was the name given to the country by Christopher Columbus because he landed in a deep bay off the north coast.

Primera Calle and Tercera Avenida
The oldest streets in San Pedro Sula are First Street (Primera Calle) and Third Avenue (Tercera Avenida). They divide the city between north and south. Avenida Circunvalacion is considered the city's centre.
Hondurans are called CATRACHOS, this word comes from 1857. In that time, General Florencio Xatruch was ordered to fight William Walker soldiers in order to maintain peace in Central America, so Florencio´s soldiers were called xatruches, the word changed during the following years, until it became catracho.
Temperatures in San Pedro Sula can reach as high as 40 C during the Summer. Overall we get high temperatures and humid weather year round.
WHAT TO PACK
You'll find US dollars are the most convenient and efficient currency to use. Not all currencies can be exchanged at the local banks.
