Tegucigalpa is the largest city and capital of Honduras. Hurricane Mitch destroyed much of Tegucigalpa in 1998, especially the poorer and more dangerous sector known as Comayaguela. The city provided such heartbreaking images during the mega storm that brought endless rain - resulting in flooding and mudslides.

Tegucigalpa has a new face now - new buildings, new roads, and new commerce. It's safer and cleaner than 5 years ago.  The city is a good central gateway and transportation hub (bus terminals and airport) with easy connections all over Honduras incl. the Bay Islands, Copan Ruins, and other Central and South American cities, as well as the USA.

Tegucigalpa is definitely worth a visit on your way into or out of Honduras - by plane or bus. While you are in the capital, make sure you visit the quaint mountain towns nearby like Santa Lucia, Valle de Angeles, and Yuscaran (where they make the famous local alcohol) or Danli (where the export-quality puros or cubano cigars are produced).

Tegucigalpa is just on the doorsteep of the beautiful "La Tigra" National Park.. (great for day and overnight hikes).
