Honduras is a dream destination for people who love to take amazing photos and enjoy a day by the beach. Tegucigalpa used to be one of Central America’s most dangerous cities, but it’s getting better year by year. You must always be aware of pickpockets and tourist scams, like you’d do in any big city. But don’t worry, volunteers have the support of their hosts and the Worldpackers team to find the best places to stay and the safest neighborhoods.
Aside from Tegucigalpa, two other major cities are San Pedro Sula and Coxen hole, where you’ll find international airports, museums and attractions. San Pedro is also historical, with pre-Columbian architecture. Before spanish invasion, the Nahuas and Mayas inhabited the region. It’s a great place to volunteer abroad because you can get to interact with locals and see wonderful nature. For example in towns like El porvenir where you find the Honduras Child Alliance and La ceiba where you find Pico Bonito National Park and Swinford Park.
You can use Worldpackers and find places to exchange work for free accommodation in Honduras. Our host list is varied, so you will find opportunities to do a bunch of volunteer jobs like gardening, teaching languages or even more complicated ones like website developing!
