Situated on 1,800 acres along Central America’s Caribbean coast and the golden sands of Tela Bay (about 90 minutes from San Pedro Sula), the newly opened INDURA BEACH AND GOLF RESORT in Honduras is an ideal escape. Indura (meaning “Honduras” in local Garifuna dialect) features 60 junior suites spread among 15 thatched-roof villas, and each offers a view that ranges from a lush garden setting to a stunning ocean vista. All the spaces incorporate Honduran elements into their design, such as walls crafted of area pine and decorative accents made from locally harvested Guanacaste wood. There is also an 18-hole golf course designed by Gary Player, one of pro golf’s greatest linksmen, as well as an on-site spa that provides both thalassotherapy (treatments that integrate sea­water) and phytotherapy (using plants and herbs). If this isn’t enough to sway you, the boutique property sits mere steps away from Jeanette Kawas National Park, which boasts secluded coves, tropical rain forest and a bevy of wildlife, including howler monkeys, manatees and hundreds of colorful bird species. It’s the perfect spot for trekking, snorkeling and kayaking. Rooms from $250, www.induraresort.com
