The Honduran Institute of Tourism (IHT) and the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE) created a map for tourists to use to explore coffee in Honduras. This is the latest joint initiative from the two organizations.
The “Coffee Route” encompasses the country’s six coffee-growing regions––Copan, Opalaca, Montecillos, Comayagua, Agalta, and El Paraiso–each with distinct geographic and bioclimatic conditions.
“The combination of tourism and coffee with the launch of the ‘Coffee Route’ allows us to offer the best of Honduras to both domestic and international tourists. It also serves to diversify income sources and create new opportunities for our coffee farmers,” said Rene Leon Gomez, general manager of the Honduran Coffee Institute (IHCAFE).
IHT and IHCAFE have collaborated since 2013 to develop coffee plantations, equipping them with the necessary infrastructure and training to support visitors to the sites. The investment and development is an important economic driver for the region.
