Date 2015-01-04 10:01:58 Location : Central America
Nueva Ocotepeque is a safe, quiet town of about 15,000 in the westernmost part of Honduras. While certainly not a tourist destination, it is a beautiful town surrounded by picturesque cloud forests and mountains. It is a frequent stop off point for travelers heading to and from El Salvador and Guatemala, therefore bus transportation to the rest of the region is excellent. Ocotepeque is considered small by most volunteers, but not so small that basic necessities like internet access aren't readily available. For volunteers who like to travel, San Salvador and the Copan Ruins are a day trip away. Also, popular coastal destinations like Tela, La Cieba and the Bay Islands are easily accessible during long weekends and vacations.
