Thought the tour was ok - buses were old, streets are bumpy (it had just rained and there were a lot of puddles too). I thought it was a little forced at the end when they had locals waiting for us to perform a show and then expecting us to tip them. I realize this is a very underdeveloped country but I wouldn't go about getting money in that fashion. It was a little off putting. Read Less

Trujillo, Honduras is a new port and so there are no Diamonds Intl, or color changing tshirts, etc., but that's what we really liked about it. If you want to see how real people live on a beautiful coast where there is no KFC or Taco Bell - check it out. It won't be long before it is much more modernized, a new pier is being built to accomodate cruise ships. Right now it's a tender, but there is only one cruise ship a week there. Just imagine how nice the people are when they aren't pushing you into their stores. Enjoy a historic tour around the small town then stop and have a few beers on the beach - three for $5,00. Know that November through January is the rainy season and so the streets may be muddy. And since the town is isolated and the only one within a six hour drive to an airport, the kids are out of school during this time. There aren't hundreds of them, but they will be trying to get your attention to buy their wares.One quick funny note - I have developed a bad habit of saying "No" to hawkers' requests whether it was children or adults. One small boy called me on it. He replied "No, thank you". I acknowled his lesson to me in showing respect and said, No, thank you. I think it's a must see before the cruise industry ruins it.
