Ron Mader: Essay


Honduras ought to be a wonderful place for international tourism, but there are two obstacles:
1) The lack of timely and trusty worthy information regarding safety
2) The lack of practical information for visitors in English

As a fan of your country and the author of a now 10-year-old guidebook to nature tourism, I would love to know more about what's on offer, but I have not found official sources to be candid or forthcoming.
Honduras debe ser un lugar maravilloso para el turismo internacional, pero hay dos obstáculos:
1) La falta de información oportuna y digna de confianza en materia de seguridad
2) La falta de información práctica para los visitantes en Inglés

Como fan de su país y el autor de una guía ahora 10 años de edad para el turismo de naturaleza, me encantaría saber más sobre lo que se ofrece, pero no he encontrado fuentes oficiales sinceros.

Forests

In 2005 Honduras had nearly 50,000 km2 of varied forest cover (FAO 2005), including tropical rainforests, cloud forests, mangroves, and coniferous forests, making it rich in biodiversity. However, it has also had one of the world’s highest deforestation rates, losing about 3% of its forest cover annually since 1990. - Honduras Carbon, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Map (PDF)

Videos

The Río Platáno Biosphere Reserve, Honduras – home to the highest level of tropical biodiversity in Central America, homeland of the Pech and Miskito Indians, and keeper of hundreds of unexplored archeological sites – is in danger. Non-indians are invading the Reserve from all sides, poaching endangered wildlife and fish, slashing and burning ancient forests to sow pastures, and forcing indigenous inhabitants off their ancestral lands. Paradise in Peril follows an expedition organized to document the destruction of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and collect testimony from the native peoples who rely on the Río Platáno for survival.
