How to get from Utila to Puertos Barrios (Guatemala)?


Could someone help me with this: what is the best way to get from Utila (or La Ceiba) to Puertos Barrios or to Livingston in Guatemala? Are there any boats leaving from La Ceiba for example or do I have to go overland... (and how?)?

Thank you very much!

Overland, I believe, by bus. First step is to get to San Pedro Sula, then Puerto Cortes, then the border, then Puerto Barrios. Should be doable in a day.

Another route - much longer - would be to go via Copan Ruinas, stop there, and then travel up through Puerto Barrio through Guatemala.
