Comayagua is a small city in Honduras. It has maintained much of its picturesque Spanish Colonial era architecture.

Understand

Get in

Comayagua is about 2 hours by car or bus from Tegucigalpa, where the nearest international airport is located. TACA, American, and Continental airlines service the Tegucigalpa airport.

Further away, but on a better road, is the San Pedro Sula airport.

Get around

Taxis abound. Fares for anywhere in town, before 6PM, are 20 Lempiras per person. Rates go up after 6PM and again in the evening hours. Rates may even be higher at 3 AM or so. ALWAYS ask the fare before entering the cab.

See

In the central square of the town sits the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, an outstanding example of 18th-century colonial architecture.

Itineraries

Do

Eat

  • Restaurante Colonial, Parque Central (next to the Cathedral). Very good food at reasonable prices in a romantic setting, on the central square, right next to the cathedral. Seafood, steaks, salads, chicken and plato tipico. Ricardo, the owner, has filled the restaurant with art, crafts, and antiques from Honduras as well as the US. Credit cards accepted. Outside seating on the parque. Special seating for groups up to about 25.
  • Restaurante Toritos (Toritos Restaurant), CA-5 (On the main highway, just south of town). Toritos is probably the best restaurant in town. Known for their excellent steaks, they also serve seafood and chicken. Full bar, credit cards accepted. Secure parking.
