ABOUT OUR DESTINATIONS
About La Ceiba
Considered “The Capital of Ecotourism”, due to its diverse natural offerings. Among the many popular areas, the imposing Pico Bonito (Beautiful Peak) stands at 2,435 meters. Pico Bonito’s tropical rain forest provides beautiful waterfalls and spectacular landscapes. It is also home to the Cangrejal River, one of the few rivers in Central America enjoyed by people partaking in such water sports as white water rafting and canoeing.
Ecotours, river rafting, garifuna villages, and mountain treks are what La Ceiba is all about. Beach lovers can always just relax on any of the uncrowded La Ceiba beaches.
Located near the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the largest barrier reef in the Caribbean Sea and the second largest worldwide after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Roatán is world famous for its extraordinary and pristine diving locations scattered all over the island, because of the aforementioned Meso-American reef system which creates a barrier around the entire north shore of the island creating a sanctuary for marine life on the inner part of the reefs and an abundance of spectacular dive sites on the outer reefs. In recent years the island has also seen a steady expansion in Eco-tourism which has taken the island by storm and most of Central American tourism because of its ecological and environmental advantages as well as the promotion of green energy and conservation throughout these fragile and precious eco-systems.
Adventure sports and activities from Zip-lining, ATV, scooter tours, parasailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, wind surfing, free diving, and catamaran or sailboat cruises to the nearby Hog Islands, Cayos Cochinos or the island of Útila are also in abundance. Sport fishing excursions has become a growing favorite among visitors on the island for its abundant variety of marine fish. The island maintains strict laws against poaching and the killing of all big-game fish, primarily billfish, by practicing “catch and release” tournaments and fishing excursions. It is the only way to properly sustain and develop a healthy fishing industry and the environment.
Nestling in the Caribbean Sea and located approximately 18 miles (29 km) from the Honduran mainland port of La Ceiba, Utila is just 11 km long and 4 km. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful places in the world for its vast coral reefs with prolific undersea life, it is also the ultimate destination for whale shark encounters. People around the world come to Utila to experience the unique underwater world with over 60 different scuba diving sites to choose from, including caves and numerous wrecks. Visitors also choose Utila because it offers the most cost effective option there is.
Utila has many Cays, some privately owned and even up for rent, and others are open to visitors, especially Water Cay. Water Cay is a deserted tropical island, imagine heaven; the blue sky merges perfectly with the crystalline waters. It is also uninhabited and has no buildings on it. You can get there by water taxi, a 30 minute journey from the town centre to enjoy isolation and peaceful snorkeling.
