The hard-to-pronounce capital of Honduras, Tegucigalpa is known affectionately as "Tegus" among locals. Known for its signature highland mountains and old stone streets, Tegus is a delightful if sprawling place to visit. The scenery only serves to complement the city's plethora of activities. Tegucigalpa packages are the perfect way to dive into the heart of Honduras, which offers attractions and festivals year-round.
First and foremost, it's a good idea to check out Tegucigalpa car rentals if you're planning Tegucigalpa vacations, so that you can get from one attraction to another easily and securely. For an incredible panoramic view of the city and surrounding hills, head to Parque de la Paz, which also possesses a moving peace monument. While Tegucigalpa isn't known for its venerable colonial landmarks, it has its fair share of them, so be sure to stop by Saint Michael's Cathedral and San Francisco Church. The National Zoo is worth a visit to see some tropical fauna, and the National Identity Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in Honduran culture. It even has interesting information about the Mayans!
Since Tegus is the capital of a predominantly Catholic nation, there are always faith-related festivities around Christian holidays. Easter brings the biggest festival of the year, noted for its parades, and Christmas – noted for its never-ending concerts – is close behind. For a non-religious celebration, residents of Tegucigalpa and tourists alike often head to the nearby town of Danli for the Corn Festival held each August. This Fiesta de Maiz is full of delicious food, lively music, beautiful art, and parties that go through the night.
