Outdoor Adventures in Honduras

Exploring the natural wonders of Honduras

Honduras is one of the many corners of the globe that suffers in tourism thanks in large part to international perception. Bullets! Crime! Gangs! Drugs! This all leaves the average traveler envisioning a country where foreigners (in this case, mainly gringos) are hunted mercilessly. Of course such logic fails when tested with reality.

Fact is, Honduras is a mecca of biodiversity with some of the world’s most pristine jungles and rainforests, plus a Caribbean coast that needs no photoshopping before it becomes a postcard. The country is at the heart of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor between Mexico and Panama, with seven percent of the Earth’s biodiversity. This includes vital and sensitive ecosystems, such as rainforests, mangroves, pine forests, savannas and swamplands.

6 Reasons You Need to Go to Detroit This Year

Detroit, Michigan

For awhile now, Detroit has made news for the wrong reasons. Bankruptcy, “ruin porn,” residents maintaining public parks because the city just wasn’t – the list goes on. In the past several years, however, the story has been changing, just like the city.

Detroit’s recovery, dubbed “America’s great comeback story,” may be a morbid curiosity to reality TV audiences waiting for failure, but that recovery is real – palpable in the city itself, particularly when you talk to people who have lived in Detroit for decades. Yes, there are still boarded-up buildings downtown, but occupancy rates in renovated apartment buildings are so high there’s a waiting list.
