Following the military coup in Honduras this past summer, the hyper-wary U.S. State Department did what you might expect: It issued a travel alert for the country. Adventure-travel outfitters also did the expected: They kept on leading trips, despite late-summer riots in the capital, Tegucigalpa. In 2010, Mountain Travel Sobek will run its regular multisport itinerary to Pico Bonito National Park (seven days, $2,995 per person; mtsobek.com). Meanwhile, GAP Adventures is continuing its trips to the Maya ruins at Copán (three days, $659 per person; gapadventures.com). "Our itineraries don't visit Teguc, and the unrest has nothing to do with tourists," says Sobek trip leader Mark Willuhn.
