Honduras has the world’s second largest barrier reef, dazzling Caribbean islands, colonial style towns, and a mountain interior on the west. Honduras is famous for its breath-taking beauty and of course there’s Copan, the archaeological site of the Maya civilisation. The small Mayan site is famous for its remarkable stela some dating back to the 9th century BC. But Honduras’ true treasure is the people and relaxed lifestyle. You will also enjoy the Independence parades, local celebrations and carnivals, and soccer games.

Honduras is your destination if you’re interested in getting off the beaten path and studying in a country that will provide you with natural beauty, a slow pace of life, and thousands of years of culture. AFSers in Honduras live with a host family and attend a local school. The school year runs between February and November and AFS students are generally placed in grade 11 or 12.
