Is there any good shopping in La Ceiba?

Hi to all La Ceiba experts. We are travelling to Utila via La Ceiba and wondered if we should set aside time to shop. We live in the Cayman Islands where everything is really expensive so we would be looking for all of the everyday items such as clothes, undies, shoes, small electronics as these are very expensive at home.

An internet search brings up a MegaMall Plaza? Is this suitable for tourist shopping? Is it far from the airport and/or ferry terminal?

And I am also interested in a lot of craft items, such as bead making, and other hobby items. Does anyone know if they have any sort of craft shop there?

If anyone can give advice also on the transfer time between the airport and the ferry terminal that would also be useful.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

1. Re: Is there any good shopping in La Ceiba?

the mall is a 20 minute taxi drive to the ferry. the mall is just that a mall. its a cheaper version of a u.s. mall with an applebees and cheap clothing stores. sadly Honduras is curiously devoid of handy crafts (most seem to be imported from guatemala) so i don't think you'll have much luck.

however, utila is great!!!
