Highlights
    What to Expect
    After pickup at your hotel in Tegucigalpa, travel 20 miles (35 km) by air-conditioned van to the town of Sabanagrande for a typical breakfast followed by a short guided walk through the cobblestone streets and central square of the town. At the town's pavilions, savor Honduran rosquillas which are buttery, cheesy crackers made fresh daily.

    Then journey to San Buenaventura and pause for a cup of coffee or an artisanal ice cream before heading to Ojojona,about 10 minutes away, to taste more traditional food including soups, yuca, pupusas (stuffed cornmeal patties cooked on a griddle), and grilled meat. A short guided walk around town reveals the architecture, churches, and pottery and wood craft shops of Ojojona.

    The journey continues to Santa Ana to taste more regional dishes, including tamales and a corn-based beverage called atol, before returning to your hotel in Tegucigalpa. Food and beverages are not included in the price of this tour.

    Don't be afraid to visit Honduras
    Hi, I just got back from 3 beautiful weeks in Honduras. This is my 4th trip in 4 years. I flew into San Pedro and used Kerims private transport service to the western highlands near the Salvadorian border in the department of Lempira. I did not encounter any roadblocks/riots/civil unrest. I stayed there for two weeks without incident. Then Kerim picked me up from Lempira and took a girlfriend and I to PANACAM for a night (highly recommended for bird lovers), a night by Lago de Yojoa after exploring Parque Los Naranjos and Biopark Paradise. We again had a wonderful time without any incidents. Lastly, I spent 2 days in San Pedro with Kerim, we went to Omoa (what a cultural delight) and had seafood soup on the coast. My last day he took me to a spa for an expertly given massage. I even walked to the mall by myself from my hotel. The Honduran people are warm, friendly and humble. In my personal opinion, you are more likely to be assaulted on vacation in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, etc than in Honduras. Kerim is attentive, on time, and patient Don't be afraid of Honduras,if you are a tourist, and not looking for any trouble, it most likely wont find you. The news we hear here in the US is very slanted. There are always 2 sides to every story.

    ICatracho tours knows best
    Our mother - daughter (12 Years old) trip to Honduras wouldn't be as great if it wasn't for ICatracho Tours, with Kerim guiding us even before we left the US we were able to choose the best tours for a short 4 days trip. His knowledge and professionalism are excellent. I highly recommend Kerim for any of your travel needs in Honduras!

    Excellent day tour around Honduras
    My Mother, daughter and I had a great excursion led by Kerim. We would recommend it to everyone. Kerim was a safe driver, timely, courteous, friendly, spoke English and very knowledgeable with Honduras and the culture. Our excursion included the Pulhapanzak waterfall, kayaking at Yojoa lake, seeing the Taulabe caves, and stopping for a delicious dinner. We are glad to have had the convenience of traveling with a guide who knows the country so well. It was a great day!

    Had a great day trip with Kerim exploring Tegucigalpa and Valle de Angeles
    Kerim was incredibly welcoming, and very thoughtful! He made us feel safe and secure the entire day, and went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. Along with seeing beautiful parts of the city and eating delicious food, Kerim proved how knowledgeable he is about culture and history. We truly learned an amazing amount for a single day! We are beyond thankful we found Kerim, and would highly recommend him to anyone!

    Excellent tour and very informative!
    My mom and I traveled to Tegucigalpa for a short weekend so that we could experience the capitol of Honduras! We found this tour online and were excited to meet Kerim and learn about the city; and it did not disappoint. Kerim is very knowledgable and was eager to share about his city. He emailed us prior to our tour to confirm our location and the time for pickup, and then he even arrived early to pick us up (and kindly waited while we finished breakfast). His air conditioned van was very comfortable for the day's travel and he stocked it with cold water for us to drink throughout the day. Kerim shared lots of history and facts about the city and answered all of our questions! He asked us what we desired for lunch (typical Honduran food with tajadas) and he delivered; we loved the place we stopped for lunch in Valle de Angeles. If we have a chance to take another tour we won't hesitate to contact Kerim! He is very willing to cater the tour to your interests and make sure you learn and see the things you want!! Thanks Kerim!

    Road-trip in Honduras!
    I was a bit skeptical of my visiting Honduras, due to all the information found on-line about the dangers in San Pedro Sula, and cities of Honduras. Kerim changed that concept completely, and took me on a road trip through western Honduras that left me with nothing more than wonderful memories of kind and hospitable people, beautiful colonial towns, fresh and exciting coffee, and a deep exchange of conversations. He is a passionate person with a mission. I am so privileged to have been a part of his vision to change Honduras for the better. Go visit Honduras, and enjoy the company of Kerim!

    Another Great Tour
    This was third trip to Tegucigalpa and my second tour with Kerim. A very enjoyable day customized to my interests. The tour included several historic Colonial Churches, scenic photo detours, as well interesting conversation and insights into Honduras’ rich history and dreams for the future.

    Punctual / Flexible / Passionate
    I just returned from three weeks in Honduras. I used Kerim last year and he was great so I contacted him again for his services this time around. We went across the country from San Pedro/Santa Rosa de Copan/Gracias-La Campa/Lake Yojoa/PANACAM/Pulha waterfall/Tela/Pico Bonito. It was awesome. I highly recommend his services. If you are in the area or passing through Tela let him take you to lunch on the beach for sopa de mariscos with the Garifuna people. The zip lines in La Campa and Pulha waterfall are safe and fun. PANACAM and Pico Bonito national parks are pristine and filled with undiscovered swimming opportunities. I also went to Cayos Cochinos, a little overrated in my opinion. A neat place that was not on my list that Kerim suggested: the rarely visited Caves of Taulabe outside of Siguatepeque. Worth the stop if you are in the area. He's your best bet for tours/transportation in all of Honduras.

    Knowledgable, trustworthy and .....patient
    Contacted Kerim through the internet , based on the favourable reports on Tripadvisor. We were a group of 4 colleagues who wanted to se a bit of Honduras after completion of our jobs in Tegucigalpa. We had immediate contact and Kerim was very helpful in the proces of establishing what would be possible to see during our 3 day road trip. We had long and interesting days - driving a total of 1200 km on the not very good roads. Our wishes were: nature, trecking, gastronomy, local life (no churches, monuments or museums). Accomodation should be clean, safe and economical. Kerim understood our wishes and we planned a trip from Tegucigalpa to Tela and La Ceiba. Caves, natural parks, microbrewery and a visit to a very local restaurant - they had been serving the same dish breakfast, lunch and dinner for more that 20 years and the place is still full. We loved the natural parks - the towns did not win our hearts. Sometimes our wishes differed in the group and Kerim displayed extreme diplomacy to make everything work out anyhow. Honduras has a bad reputation for crime and I am sure that you should be cauteous. We only met friendly people, we did not feel threatened and nobody tried to rip us off. Kerim is very knowledagble about his country and our conversations gave us a nuanced picture of Honduras. I have no hesistation in recommending him as guide and driver if you plan a roadtrip in Honduras

    Honduras is Better Because of Kerim!
    Kerim Perdomo, of Intercambio Catracho, is honest, authentic, and sincere. We communicated via email (his English is excellent) until we met in person at TGU, where he was waiting for me in the Arrivals Hall. He is a professional, not only dressed accordingly but equipped with a new, clean Toyota van. (And given the amount of driving we did over the next three days, it's vital to add that he is a good and safe driver.) He is knowledgeable about his country, and he is passionate about the development of Honduras. He is adamant about making a good impression, and this reveals itself while walking through the streets of Tegucigalpa, the cobble-stoned alleyways of Santa Lucia, or the cavernous depths of the Telus Caves. Kerim is the premier tour operator in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, and the surrounding areas. Honduras seems to focus so much of its marketing on Roatan; thus, it stands to reason that tourism professionals flock to Roatan as well. But Kerim is on the ground, on the Honduran mainland, as he believes that Honduras has more to offer than scuba. And he is right. Tegucigalpa, Comayagua, Santa Lucia . . . are beautiful. (And I don't believe I'd have seen Comayagua and Santa Lucia had it not been for Kerim.) I consider myself a traveler, not a tourist. Very likely, Kerim was able to meet my needs because he, too, is a traveler. He's been to the USA many times (he is passionate about photography and music), and he has traveled to El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. He understands what a traveler wants to see and do; he "gets it." If you're thinking about taking a trip to Honduras, know that you have a friend on the ground. Kerim Perdomo, of Intercambio Catracho, is a stand-up guy who who will show you the beauty of Honduras.

    Exceptional!
    Bueno! Absolutely Bueno!!! I am a first visitor to Tegucigalpa (and Honduras) and came to visit kids that I help sponsor at a school here. While here, I wanted to learn a bit more about the Country than what I was exposed to on the hotel TV channels. My tour with Kerim far exceeded my expectations. Kerim is obviously proud of his homeland and gave up a successful career to try to promote understanding and appreciation for his proud Country via the tour company.. (Unlike some tour operators, he was also willing to discuss not only the Country's strengths and beauty, but also challenges). Kerim was more than willing to slightly adjust the itinerary and discussions to meet special interests. His experience helped guide me to some wonderful photo opportunities, but also locally owned shops, artisans and dining. Kerim even went beyond expectations in that he inspected each item that I had selected to buy and in one case, noted damage that I had missed, and arranged with artesian to replace the damaged part. Kerim repeatedly Thanked me for my trust. Kerim, Thank you. My trust was well placed. I hope to return to Honduras again and will definitely work through Kerim to schedule future trips.

    Trustworthy Catracho
    I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras a lifetime ago, I was hesitant to return, but I made the correct choice! Never once during my 2 week vacation, did I feel threatened. If Honduras is on your to do list, do it now, before it explodes and turns into another cookie cutter Americanized destination. Kerim is awesome and extremely flexible. I changed my mind a few times and he always went with the flow. No questions asked. Right on spot with hotel recommendations, and TRUST him when he gives you an estimate on travel time. His vehicles are new, air conditioned and clean. I highly suggest the tour to La Tigra in Tegus and the canopy tour in La Campa/colonial Gracias. Beautiful areas. If you love photography, this is definitely your man - just let him know an he'll hook you up. Once again, I left this beautiful country with tears in my eyes. Hope to return next year. If I do, I will certainly seek out Kerim.

    Dedicated professional!
    This is the second year in a row that I hired Kerim at intercambio Catracho to assist me in traveling in Honduras. First, he picked up our mission team at the airport then he spent a week with us transporting and guiding our mission team. He became part of our team and assisted us in more ways than I could write. His knowledge of Honduras and professionalism made the whole week go smoothly. For our return to the U.S.A., Kerim delivered us to the airport and then stayed with us through the check in process. He then waited until everyone had cleared the TSA inspections before leaving the airport. Everyone on the team enjoyed his calm and pleasant personality. We will definitely be using Kerim in the future and recommend him to anyone needing first rate personal service in Honduras!

    Amazing Tour Guide!!
    Kerim is a proud Honduran who is committed to showing off the beauty of his country and to ensuring that visitors leave with a positive impression. He is very trustworthy, friendly, and knowledgeable about Honduras. He picked me up and we went on a city tour around Tegucigalpa and then to Valle de los Angeles and Santa Lucia -- two lovely towns near the city. We also met up the next day to visit el Picacho and Parque Naciones Unidas. I throughly enjoyed chatting with him and seeing more of the city. He can customize tours to meet your wishes and is really dedicated to making sure you have a good time. Highly recommend!!!
