I just returned from a trip to Honduras with my wife and four friends. After a week of diving on Cayos Cochinos we were looking for a little pampering and bird watching so we spent four days at The Lodge at Pico Bonito.
The Lodge is just outside La Ceiba but worlds away. We were there in early September so the birding was not at its best but we still saw keel-billed toucands, collared aracari, lovely cotingas, and a host of other glory birds. We are experienced birders but nevertheless we paid for several trips with a local guide, Jose and he could spot amazing things. Take the early morning bird tour and the tour to the coastal mangrove forest. Down there we saw crocodiles, howler and white-face monkeys, bats, several heron species and lots more.
The Lodge is not inexpensive but we found it worth the price. A couple pieces of advice. Ask for an upgraded cabin so that you get air conditioning. It is the tropics. Also the wifi did not reach our cabins, # 9 and 10 but they are the furthest from the main buildings.
Honduras has a reputation as a very violent place and one must be careful in La Ceiba. Nevertheless the Lodge at Pico Bonito had guards on the grounds at all times and we never felt unsafe.
