Why live in Honduras?
This relatively small Central-American country may be easily overlooked; that would be a mistake as it offers great opportunities for immigrants looking for adventure and a big change in their lives.
The country is home to beautiful reefs and national parks, Mayan ruins and ancient cities. There are diving and snorkelling opportunities and you can go hiking, fishing and rafting in one of Honduras’ protected ecosystems that are also home to some historical sites. And if you live in the big city, there are many beautiful islands to escape to. English is widely spoken on these Bay islands, Spanish elsewhere and medical care is available in larger cities.

There are many local companies that help immigrants get a work permit by sponsoring their stay and making it a lot easier to switch jobs.
