Puerto Barrios Things to See and Do

follow us

Puerto Barrios is a working town and subsequently does not hold much attraction for travelers, unlike neighboring Livingston, and you will probably not be here unless you‚Äôre passing through on your way to Honduras. However, if you do have a few hours or an evening to spend here there are a few things to do. You could spend a few hours browsing round the large market in the middle of town. Instead of a shady plaza there is the cathedral, opposite Gecko‚Äôs Internet Caf√©, a peaceful place to sit and contemplate. Otherwise, eating and drinking to pass the time is a pleasant choice, particularly by the glimmering ocean of the Gulf of Honduras at Safari or Cangrejo Azul or the historic Hotel del Norte, in front of which there is a new park and malec√≥n, or promenade, for walk along the waterfront in the sun and the breeze. Further out, there is a air conditioned mall called ‚ÄėLa Pradera‚Äô on the way to Santo Tom√°s.
