Honduras' Caribbean Coast Travel Guide

The third-largest city in Honduras, La Ceiba was once the country's busiest port. It's named after a huge tree near the dock that sheltered the workers, which should give you an idea of how hot La Ceiba can be. Mild relief is occasionally offered by trade winds off the bay.

La Ceiba has several reputations. It's first known as the axis of mainland Honduras. Domestic flights to

the Bay Islands and La Mosquitia depart from the Golosón International Airport, and ferries to Roatán and Utila take off from the Muelle de Cabotaje.
