Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

Tegucigalpa is the capital of and largest city in Honduras.
Hondurans in general, and people familiar with the city, shorten Tegucigalpa to "Tegus", while most locals actually use the full name.   Tegucigalpa is a great example in Central America of urban sprawl run amok, spread out across very hilly terrain.

The city is a 400 year-old mining center and has many interesting sites and activities for those with the time to find them. It has a plethora of interesting, if decaying, old colonial buildings, and many old stone streets, winding intriguingly up steep hills, to hidden parks, stone steps, and old houses.

The defining event in recent Honduran history, and that of Tegucigalpa also, was Hurricane Mitch, which devastated the country in 1998. Mitch reputedly set the country back 50 years. Tegus is still recovering from the massive flooding of the river, and equally massive landslides, both triggered by the rampant deforestation of the hills surrounding the city. Indeed, signs of whole colonias (neighbourhoods) having slid off steep hills are still evident. Workers continue to toil daily in the river, removing silt deposited by the flooding.  Most people lost friends and relatives during the tragedy.
