Hope (in English) in Intibucá, twin cities linked by one past and one future. Settled at 1.700 meters above sea level, the two become a single entity in the eyes of outsiders: La Esperanza, the highest city of Honduras. To the outside world can be a single city, however, when the traveler remains sometime in the area they realize that there are significant differences. Each of the cities have their own mayor, the Catholic Church and to its market.

Intibucá is head of municipality, La Esperanza is head of the municipality and the department. While Intibucá maintains a predominantly Lenca population, La Esperanza is mostly Ladino (mestizo). Interestingly, they share Central Park.

However, all these differences go unnoticed for the traveler who just arrives. There are no limits established between them and the first thing you hear is a single city with an extraordinary climate, dedicated to trade, growing potatoes, blackberries, strawberries, peaches, apples and corn (the department of Intibucá is the largest producer of potatoes from the country). Production of textiles and pottery in white clay are some of the main items of the Lenca people. These crafts are attached to new income alternatives such as wine making, fruit in syrup and rural tourism. It seems that the twin cities begin to carve out a new future.
