La Ceiba

La Ceiba is the ecotourism capital of Honduras. Located on the Caribbean coast of Honduras, it is also the gateway to the Bay Islands of Honduras, since the ferry service and airlines use this city as a hub to connect towards the islands. Four national parks are within easy access from La Ceiba: Pico Bonito and Nombre de Dios National Parks, as well as the Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge and the Cayos Cochinos Marine Monument. La Ceiba is an ethnic melting pot, with Garifunas, Bay Islanders, Miskito natives, and an important expatriate community living here. La Ceiba is famous for the Cangrejal River and its outstanding white water rafting and kayaking. Hot springs are abundant along the north coast of Honduras, and La Ceiba is no exception with lovely natural hot water springs along the Nombre De Dios National Park. The largest selection of Ecolodge type facilities in Honduras are located around La Ceiba, with many on the Cangrejal River. The headquarters of Standard Fruit Company (Dole) in Honduras are in La Ceiba. Access to La Moskitia, the remote jungle region that Honduras shares with Nicaragua is mainly from La Ceiba, with daily flights departing from La Ceiba to this region. La Ceiba is located 200 km, from San Pedro Sula, the second largest city in Honduras
