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.
