The city of Choluteca is the capital of the department bearing the same name, in the southern area of Honduras. Also known as La Perla del Sur or Pearl of the South, the city was founded on June 28, 1825, and is the birthplace of the wise José Cecilio del Valle, editor of the Central America Independence Act in 1821.

Choluteca has the best preserved historic center of Honduras, which is extremely pleasant to visit during the early hours of the morning, or at night. Its patron saint festivity is dedicated to the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception, and in December of each year, FERISUR, an agro-industrial fair that is already positioned in the Central American region, is celebrated.

Punta Ratón and Punta Condega are places chosen by nature so that each year the olive ridley turtles return to the place of their birth to spawn and give way to their procreation. In these places, there are groups working for the conservation of these turtles.

Due to its strategic location, San Lorenzo is very popular. Here, to come and enjoy the delights of the sea is an experience that must be accompanied by a visit to Playa del Amor, located among mangrove forests crossed by channels that take you to open waters in the Gulf of Fonseca. You can also visit the fruit farms, where you can enjoy wonderful melons and watermelons, among other fruits.

San Marcos de Colón is a city declared as Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It has an enviable climate, and it is a quiet place, clean and tidy. The area is well known for its agricultural and livestock activities, and its traditional fairs. It is also well known for the production of leather, meat and dairy products. In the surroundings, there are picturesque villages surrounded by exuberant vegetation.

Amapala is a city located on the Isla del Tigre, or Island of the Tiger, at the heart of the Gulf of Fonseca, in the Pacific of Honduras. The Island of the Tiger is by itself a great and enchanting attraction, with many places to enjoy when taking walks along the beaches and the road that surrounds it. A trail that begins in the community of Caracol takes you to a hill. Cueva de la Sirena is located in Playa Grande, which is told to have been a haven for pirates such as the famous Francis Drake.
