Finding treasures to bring home to family and friends is no problem in Honduras. Simply explore the various shops in any town, and you’re sure to find a memorable handmade craft. This video explores three options… Valle de Ángeles, a small town located near Tegucigalpa, is known for its leather, carved wooden boxes and weavings. The distinctive pottery made by the indigenous Lenca people is a unique option - one that is only made in Honduras. While visiting the Bay Islands, be sure to consider the handmade jewelry and hammocks.
