CANATURH, HONDURAS: Having trouble deciding what beach to go to?

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When people decide to take a vacation at the beach, they usually look for places in the Caribbean that offer warm waters, white sand and tropical settings. The supply is quite abundant and the tourist ends up deciding on the basis of some additional feature that a certain destination has to offer, and at times the decision is hard because somewhere there is something extra that appeals to them but it's lacking something else, and that's where they just have to take their chances, resigning theirself to not having everything, because, as they say, "you can't have it all in this life," – and yet…

How about if you realized that there is such a place that has all those extras in just one place? Well, keep reading, there's something here for you…   

Tela is a place where the beaches are vast expanses of white sand bathed by seas of crystalline waters, where the horizon is a band of deep turquoise… well, you'll say, that's fine but that's available at quite a number of places in the Caribbean, and you'd be entirely correct, but only two places are considered virgin within the enormous Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (MBRS), which is the second largest coral reef in the world, and one of these two locations is Banco Capiro located just off Tela, a place with 70% live coral coverage, while the rest of the MBRS reef reaches 20% at most – now that's not bad for an extra, is it?

But the list of additional features doesn't end there, crossing the access highway to Tela you'll find a spectacular botanical garden called Lancetilla, a place where you can discover an enormous variety of plants from all corners of the globe, and which since the beginning of the 20th century has been a world-class research center, which makes it the biggest Tropical Botanical Garden in the western hemisphere.  So then, moving right along, crossing the bay of Tela in a ferry, we come to the Jeannette Kawas National Park, which, to put it briefly, is a tropical forest with an enormous range of biodiversity, and if that were not enough, it's surrounded by small coves where you will be welcomed by scores of hundreds of birds, and that might seem to be enough, and yet there's more, one of the most captivating places to tarry is the Garífuna community of Miami, an almost surreal place located on a fringe of sand separating the Caribbean from the Los Micos Lagoon, so-called because of the abundance of monkeys in the forests surrounding the lagoon, and in moments you go from choppy sea to the stillness of a lagoon…

We've spoken now of attractive natural features, so is there anything else? Tela and its outskirts are home to Garifuna culture, a Honduran ethnic group with Afro-Caribbean roots that maintain its ancestral cultural ties, drums, seashells, music, dance, and of course, a culinary tradition that includes Conch Soup, coconut candies and all sorts of surf and turf combinations that can pass the test of the most demanding palates.  

And when it comes to accommodation and food, there's plenty to choose from, ranging from the newly inaugurated Indura Beach Resort, ranked among the best resorts in the world for 2014, to guest houses where a hammock can become your bed; restaurants ranging from simple stands selling baleadas (wheat-flour tortillas stuffed with fried beans), one of the country's most popular staples, to fine gourmet restaurants – or just put it this way, there is lots to choose from.

Now that you know all this, all that remains is to set the date for your trip, because you can enjoy any time of year here since it's always summer time, and we'll be waiting for you with a cocktail.
