La Ceiba is the third largest city in Honduras, and is probably the most vibrant. A relatively young city, it got its name from a huge Ceiba tree that was next to the beach and provided shade during the hot afternoons to the workers at the dock and locals. La Ceiba has long been the operational hub of the Standard Fruit Company, producers of bananas, pineapples, grapefruits and many other Honduran exports.

Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge


Located just 33 km from La Ceiba on the Caribbean coast, this wildlife refuge was designated a protected area in 1986 because of its endangered manatee population, as well as the complex series of saltwater and freshwater wetlands it contains. The park protects about 35 species of animals, including manatees, Jaguar, Jabiru, whiteface and other species of monkeys, as well as alligators and a great diversity of fish species. The area is also rich in bird life, with 198 different species (about 28% of the total bird species found in Honduras). There is also a rich variety of vegetation supporting the animal life, including primary forests, lush mangroves and different types of palm.

Transportation into the park is by "burra" - a hand powered cart following the rail line. Individuals are advised not to separate from the guide as a protection for their personal safety and to reduce their impact on the park.

Pico Bonito Cloud Forest.

Unquestionably one of the most diverse parks in Honduras, Pico Bonito covers an extension of land that goes from sea level to as high as 7,300ft, and has the largest change of altitude in Honduras. Wonderful waterfalls and incredible views of the Caribbean coast and the Bay Islands is the reward to those who walk high enough.
