The government has begun to promote tourism on the Islas de la Bahía off of Honduras's Caribbean coast.
Foreign tourists are attracted to Honduras by the Mayan ruins in Cobán and coral reef skindiving off the Islas de la Bahía (Bay Islands). Poor infrastructure, however, has discouraged the development of substantial international tourism. Despite these problems, the number of visitors arriving in Honduras rose from fewer than 200,000 in 1987 to almost 250,000 in 1989. Small ecotourism projects in particular are considered to have significant potential.
