Driving in La Cieba?

Driving in La Cieba?

We are planning a trip to the Lodge at Pico Bonito and are contemplating renting a car in San Pedro Sula upon arrival, driving to La Ceiba, and then keeping the car during our stay so that we can explore the area.

What are driving conditions like and how safe is the area? Would renting a car be a mistake? Are roads well marked?

GA -

From San Pedro Sula to La Ceiba the roads are in good condition and though not really well marked bu US standards it is pretty much a straight shot. The entry to the Lodge at Pico Bonito is well marked on your way to La Ceiba and they have a very secure facility.

Enjoy Honduras!

Have you ever rented/driven in Central America before? If you have... then no problem... the driving conditions are ok...its about 2.5 hour drive. Just keep an eye out for the sign for Pico Bonito Lodge as its kind of small....we almost missed it the first time.

The area is safe....sound be fine...the roads arent well marked but since the highway is the only main road.. you really cant get lost.

let me know if you have any other questions...i took my fiance there to Pico Bonito... great place..
