Accommodations in Honduras range from full-scale resort complexes and luxury hotels aimed at business travelers to small guesthouses, bed-and-breakfasts, and rooms rented out of someone's house.

In general, accommodation rates in Honduras are significantly cheaper than those in Europe or North America. High tourist season in Honduras is during national holidays and the dry season, running roughly from January to June, depending on what part of the country you're visiting. Hotels may charge higher rates, or they may not. Apart from the Bay Islands, most hotels do not have high-season rates. The prices listed in this guide are rack rates, but many hotels offer cheaper rates and promotional deals through their websites.

Apart from a few major international chain hotels and beach resorts that allow kids to stay free, most hotels don't offer discounts for children -- though it never hurts to ask. If you're visiting an eco-lodge or hotel in any area near the jungle, most accommodations have either screened-in windows or provide mosquito nets. The exceptions are the bare-bones beach shacks along the coast and rustic huts in La Mosquitia.

Don't be shy about negotiating a discount during the off season, as some hotel owners are willing to pass a travel agent's 10% to 20% commission on to you in the form of a discount.

Prices shown reflect double occupancy; ask for details about a "single" rate, as single rooms are often small and come with a twin-size bed.
