ComayaguaHonduras. It has maintained much of its picturesque Spanish Colonial era architecture.
Further away, but on a better road, is the San Pedro Sula airport, the busiest in Honduras.
Rent a car at either of those airports, or catch one of the many busses running the SPS-Tegucigalpa-SPS route.
Restaurante Casa Colonialaddress: Parque CentralVery good food at reasonable prices in a romantic setting on the central square, right next to the cathedral. Seafood, steaks, salads, chicken and plato tipico. Coffee shop attached. Also serves breakfast. Inquire about off-menu items such as crab, or sushi-maki. Ricardo, the owner, has filled the restaurant with art, crafts, and antiques from Honduras and the US. Credit cards accepted. Outside seating on the parque. Special seating for groups up to about 25.
Restaurante El Toritoaddress: CA-5Toritos is probably the best restaurant in town. Known for their excellent steaks, they also serve seafood and chicken. Full bar, credit cards accepted. Air-conditioned. Secure parking.
Fast Food Restaurantsaddress: CA-5On the main highway, between the two major intersections, is a Pizza Hut, a Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, Baskin Robbins, and a Pollo Compenero. Wendy's is about a quarter of a mile towards town, on the "old" boulevard. Go towards town at the Texaco, you'll see it on the left.
GolosinasThese small, inexpensive, family-run restaurants serving typical Honduran food and either fried or rotisserie chicken are on every block it seems. Food preparation in Honduras is not tightly regulated as it is in the US, so caution is on order when in any restaurant. But after being in-country for a few weeks, you should be able to eat pretty much anywhere.
Mang Yingaddress: Old Blvd (4th Ave) and 7th StThere are many Chinese restaurants in Comayagua, most of them serving the same food, but Mang Ying is probably the best. Expect giant portions. A decent atmosphere, with large photos of Chinese landmarks and generous seating partially makes up for the fact that "American" style Chinese food, such as General Cho's Chicken, is absent from the menu. Overall, good food, prepared quickly. Air-conditioned. No credit cards accepted. Secure parking.
La Casitaaddress: Old Blvd (Ave 4) and 1st ST, approxExcellent family restaurant with the one of the only true grills in town (there are more than a few street food vendors around town who grill skewers of meat and white corn-on-the-cob). Grilled favorites such as steak, pork chops, sausage, and barbecue chicken are accompanied with tortillas, rice, beans, chismol, cooked plantains, and a trio of sauces in a farmhouse atmosphere. The walls are covered with original paintings depcting pastoral Honduran life, and antique Honduran tools and small farm implements that would have been used in a Honduran casita of years past. Reasonable prices. Air conditioning. Secure Parking. No credit cards accepted.
