Santa Lucia, Honduras

Santa Lucia is a beautiful little mountain town, outside of Tegucigalpa.  It is about 7 miles up the hill, and you can get public buses in Tegus.

It’s a great place to visit for fresh air, and for some shopping around the lagoon (nursery and flower places, souvenirs, a few small eateries).

 

I haven’t ever stayed in a hotel in Santa Lucia, but there are a couple on the main road.  There are several nice restaurants as well.  There is a market on the weekend, and the views from the Cathedral to Tegucigalpa and also from the nearby Municipal Building are worth the trip.Cemetary in Santa Lucia
