In order to provide visitors to the Letâ€™s Go Honduras
web site with even more information about the countryâ€™s
main tourist destinations, the Honduran Institute of Tourism
(HIT) has signed a cooperation agreement with Red Technologies
Honduras, S.A. de C.V. to equip the site with high quality
digital maps. Red Technologies will produce, install, run
and develop the countryâ€™s official digital tourist maps.
This strategic alliance is the result of a cooperation initiative
launched by the Institute to seek greater support in developing
its web site. Red Technologies will keep the site updated
on the countryâ€™s tourism events and activities and will
place those events on the maps. This service will be provided
at no cost to the Institute, whose sole responsibility will
be to provide the necessary information to create the maps
and update the events.

alike to use the Internet to access and discover the countryâ€™s
highways, including distances, the names and locations of
departments, municipalities, rivers, lakes and lagoons, and
other tourist attractions.

to plan, manage and implement business operations using modern
information technology and the fastest growing communication
medium in history: the Internet.
The Honduran government supports this medium by providing
it with a wide variety of institutional information, plus
data on key tourist sites, statistics, investment information,
press releases and other information of interest to travelers.
The site also offers excellent advertising opportunities both
nationwide and abroad.
The cooperation agreement, which will help launch one of
the countryâ€™s newest technologies, was signed by Tourism
Minister Thierry de Pierrefeu and Red Technologies General
Manager David Pimentel.
