BUSES OR PUBLIC TAXIS

The Concierge is the best source of information. In case you would like to arrange a tour or ask for recommendations in case you are traveling in your own vehicle, concierge services are essential. There are no dedicated center of tourism information in the vicinity of the hotel.
DID YOU KNOW ?
Coffee and cigars
Honduras is famous for its tasty coffee and handmade cigars from the western part of the country.
In the late 16th century, when Tegucigalpa was founded by Spanish settlers on the site of an earlier native settlement, its full name was Real Villa de San Miguel de Tegucigalpa de Heredia. Today, locals often shorten Tegucigalpa to 'Tegus.'
Until the 19th century, Tegucigalpa was the country's most important center for the mining of silver and gold. That's the main reason it became the Honduran capital in 1880. The name, in Nahuatl, a native language, means 'silver mountain.'
National Park La Tigra
It is not usual to find a national park in the middle of a capital city, but in Tegucigalpa you can see the La Tigra National Park just by looking towards the Cristo del Picacho up on a hill.
National Theater Manuel Bonilla
National Theater Manuel Bonilla offers a splendid interior decor. From Opera Concerts to plays, from monologues and Ballet Shows!
WHAT TO PACK
When packing, make sure to bring clothes for all seasons because of our geographical position, the weather in Honduras is unpredictable.
If you don't speak fluent Spanish, it's best to carry a dictionary with you. Not everyone speaks or understands English.
Hotel exchanges Dollars to Lempiras and vice versa. Almost all stores accept US Dollars.
Although most of the roads and avenues do have names, In Tegucigalpa we do not use them, instead we use places as a reference to give addresses. Which means it is very easy to get lost in the city, so you will need the help of a map to move around. Please ask our Concierge for further assistance.
A lot of families visit markets or small near towns for weekend getaways. Valley of Angels and Santa Lucia are highly reccomended.
