In 1536 the Spanish authorities located in Guatemala needed a safe and easy access to the embarkation and disembarkation of goods between Spain and the key points in Central America. That's why these went in search of a safe place, where he was found in Omoa. So in 1752, founded the port of Omoa Camoa under the name, a name that lasted to the municipality until 1795, when it was given its present name. After its foundation, Omoa became a port is not only safe and easily accessible, but also an important port for long. However, this significance was lost for a couple of reasons: The destruction of the town in a couple of times by fire, and finally the construction of Puerto Cortes and Puerto Caballos as it was called in colonial times, east and very near Omoa . The latter eventually seal the fate of Omoa, turning it into a small town tourist attraction or merely fishermen. Omoa, is located off the coast of Caribbean Sea.
