Guatemala-Honduras-Nicaragua-Costa Rica-Panama

Hi there,

I'm after a bit of help. I'm currently in Antigua, Guatemala and have decided to fly out of Panama mid April. I now have almost 2 months to make my way there. I'm starting to read through some books and realising that there's probably not an obvious route to make my way down to Panama City.

First off, some questions on Honduras and what I shouldn't miss, and where to cross from Guatemala, and on to Nicaragua.

I would like to go to Utila as would love to see the whale sharks, and potentially would like to see Copan, but not a big defo as I've already seen a lot of ruins in Mexico, Asia, and will be visiting Machu Pichu. My interests are good food, wildlife, nice places, generally just getting a good feel for a place.

Does anyone have any not misses in Honduras, and a potential route through to Panama, or at least in from Guatemala, and out to Nicaragua?

Thanks a lot for your help,


Vancouver Island...

I'm assuming you don't want to fly.

So you could take a bus from Antigua to Copan Ruinas with Hedman Alas, and then on to La Ceiba with Hedman Alas and catch the ferry to Utila. Hedman Alas is more expensive, but comfortable, secure and relatively fast. There are cheaper alternatives, both local buses and shuttles.

Aftter that, I don't know.
