Honduras to receive cruise ships
Honduras will form part of the organization of countries that receive cruise ships, a development that will allow it to improve negotiations with industry representatives.

This will enable the government solve problems and to generate favorable conditions for all market participants, said Tourism Secretary Ricardo Martínez.
While Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua are vying for cruise ships to dock on their coasts, during 2013 El Salvador will only receive three ships with tourists.
During the month of April the number of cruise ships that entered the country fell by 42.7 percent compared with 2007.
A bill proposes reducing from $3 to $1.5 the municipal tax paid by tourists who disembark from cruise ships in the port of Puntarenas.
Each cruise passenger spends on average $70 in the terminal and $89 on tours offered in areas around the port.
