Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Honduras
Honduras is one of the least travelled of the countries in Central America. While it has a reputation for being dangerous, as long as you do your research and avoid spending a great deal of time in the more rough areas of the country, there are quite a few things to do here that are fairly amazing. Honduras doesn't have as many hostels as some countries in Central America, but there are at least a few in the main destination cities.
Majority of people who come to Honduras make sure that they do a trip to The Bay Islands to either Utila or Roatan. Roatan is the more upmarket and quieter of the two islands where as Utila is known as party central. Both islands have spectacular diving and Utila has a reputation for being one of the cheapest places in the world for learning to dive and doing your PADI Certificate. Many of the hostels on the island work in conjunction with dive companies so look about and get a great deal. A hostel will cost you between ten to fifteen USD a night which is more expensive than most other areas of Honduras. Most hostels here are fairly classy and are similar in style to hotels though there are some budget options that are more party orientated.
If you can ever manage to get off the islands (people tend to come and stay because they area having so much fun or are so drunk), you will be going into the port town of La Ceiba. If doing the journey over to Guatemala it may be a good idea to stay the night in a hostel in La Ceiba before you start heading west as you don't want to get stuck in one of the port towns that have a reputation as being not so safe.
You will have to travel through the major bus hub of San Pedro Sula. This is home to one of the cheapest airports to fly into and out of in the entirety of Central America, but you need to be vigilant if spending any time here. Ask your hostel for advice on safe areas and how to get where you need to go safely if you stay here.
The capital city is Tegucigalpa. Many buses come through here as well. There are some great sights to see in the city but it will not take you a great deal of time to get through, maybe a day is enough. From here you can get buses into El Salvador or south to Nicaragua.
The most popular of the Mayan temples in Honduras is Copan. This is located on the westernmost border near Guatemala. It is a not to be missed attraction is you are heading that way.
Remain vigilant, do your research and Honduras can be an incredible place to experience, with many of super friendly locals. The hostels outside of the islands can be sparse, so you need to do your research as to where the hostels are and book in advance so you don't get stranded.

La Ceiba doesn't have much going for it -- if you're on your way to or from Copan you will be much better off staying in Santa Ana, about forty-five minutes West of La Ceiba. It's got hiking trails, waterfalls, nice people, cool fruit trees, and good food. In the city of La Ceiba there's almost nothing, though a fair …
