What to do in LaCeiba?

If we were to take the ferry from Roatan to La Ceiba just for the day, what is there to do on La Ceiba? Anything interesing within waking distance from where the ferry docks, or would it be necessary to get a taxi to get anywhere? We will be in Roatan for 1 week and was considering a trip to the mainland for a day.

Honestly I'm not overfond of the city of La Ceiba itself, but check out the day trip and 1/2 day offerings here - rafting, kayaking, horses, mt. bikes, hiking, waterfalls:

www.omegatours.info

They'd provide the shuttle from the dock and back; might be a charge 1 way, can't remember that part. Happy trails!

There is no interesting spot near the ferry dock, but there are several options that you could take advantage of in the short time you would be in La Ceiba. La Ceiba is considered a Nature and Adventure destination, and although the city itself might not be interesting for a day tour, the trip can be a nice complement to Roatan. Probably the best options are around the Cangrejal River Valley. This is a short 35 minute taxi ride from the ferry. (the road was a disaster but they are working on it as I'm writing)

Omega Tours offers several options, including white water rafting, horse back riding and hiking. La Moskitia Ecoaventuras also offers the white water rafting and hiking the Pico Bonito National Park trails. Another option would be the Cacao Lagoon, also within 25 minutes from the ferry dock. You can enjoy mangrove canals, see Monkeys and many birds while kayaking in the lagoon and its canals. Both Omega and La Moskitia offer tours to the Cacao Lagoon.

I definitely recommend visiting La Ceiba for at least a day tour. It will show you a window of what Honduras Is all about and you will truly enjoy yourselves.

LaCeiba is not what it used to be. I went there last year with my wife, who is from Honduras and she was well disappointed. Playa Coca cola is quite dirty and the town is scruffy and dangerous.

Just be careful when visiting mainland Honduras.

Bon voyage!
