Honduras Real Expeditions is hosting a group of US engineers this week, representatives of different institutions (such as Engineers without Borders and Rotary Club) doing land surveys for future water projects in the Marcala area (La Paz, Honduras) with ADEC (Agua y Desarrollo Comunitario) as local counterpart. Much of the groundwork for the projects has already been done by ADEC, but it is necessary to verify elevation levels with a GPS total station to make sure the water system will actually function in the future. So armed with walking sticks, machetes, measuring tape and GPS equipment, the 8 engineers hiked up and down the mountains of three communities around Marcala as well as the community of
in Copán Ruinas. Lost of slippery
slopes, muddy boots and behinds, but the work got done! Virginia

So what’s the latest in tourism? How to promote Honduras and the rest of Central America in those difficult times? How to “sell” our country to the rest of the world? Those were a few of the questions that were asked during the seminar led by Pablo Ramírez, tourism consultant from Chile who came to Copán Ruinas to work with all kinds of representatives of tourism from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. During three days of lively conferences and workshops, the participants learned to focus on offering an all-around experience, rather than selling a product. Just trying to sell our service or product is no longer sufficient; we have to offer our visitors a unique, personal and hands-on experience they will never forget, and working together with all sectors in the process.
Honduras Real Expeditions was there for the seminar and will surely put the lessons learned into practice…
