Day 4 National Parks of the Caribbean Coast
After breakfast transfer to the tranquil port of Tela. Two night stay in a very comfortable beachfront hotel overlooking the Caribbean.

Take a step back in time with a visit to a traditional beachfront Afro-Caribbean Garifuna Village where the people live in the relaxed style of a bygone age in tiny thatched huts built on stilts without any modern conveniences like electricity or telephones.

Enjoy a typical lunch before a boat trip on the Laguna de los Micos - "Spider Monkey Lagoon", a huge lagoon located in a lush mangrove forest in the middle of Punta Sal National Park. From the boat it is easy to spot the rich wildlife, such as large waterbirds like Spoonbills, Herons and Anhingas living in the area and possibly even freshwater turtles and crocodiles too. (B)
Day 5 Nature and Wildlife
In the morning leave by boat to explore the impressive rock formations of Punta Sal. Visit the sheltered little bays, well hidden among the rocks, with palm-fringed beaches and blue lagoons. There you will enjoy a tropical lunch, listening to the Howler Monkeys living in the forest behind the natural beaches. Swim and snorkel in the crystal clear water exploring the interesting marine life as the world's second largest Coral Reef comes close to shore at Punta Sal.

Returning to Tornabe there is also the chance to see dolphins jumping alongside the boat. The rest of the afternoon is free to enjoy the white beaches in front of the hotel. (B,L)
Day 6 Botanical Beauties
After breakfast leave Tornabe to visit the Lancetilla Botanical Gardens.

The gardens were founded over 70 years ago as an experimental botanical site by the United Fruit Company. Here you will find hardwood, medicinal and ornamental plants as well as tropical fruit trees from all over the world.

You will see how the bamboo forest absorbs some 90% of the daylight, admire the long rows of majestic Royal Palms or try exotic fruits fresh from the tree. An Orchid Garden and a Natural Reserve with it's beautiful 1,200-hectare virgin tropical rainforest with 240 species of birds are also part of the Park.

Lunch at the Restaurante Garifuna, a unique restaurant featuring typical local foods situated on a delightful patio next door to the Garifuna Museum. The museum is the result of a tremendous community effort by the local Garifuna women's group, and a great place to learn a little more about these fascinating people who have made their home along the Caribbean Coast of Honduras and Belize.

Late afternoon transfer to La Ceiba, a typically Caribbean port town and gateway to wildlife reserves, national parks and only minutes away by air from the Bay Islands. Two night stay.(B,L)
