The best deals in La Ceiba will be found at the The Cangrejal River Valley. Here you can find several small hotels and tour operators that offer white water rafting, kayaking, hiking, zip line canopy tours and birdwatching tours.
The Cangrejal River offers a unique oasis, where despite the fact that you are a short distance away from the city, you will feel like you are far away in the mountains, in a remote location and very much at the edge of the rainforests of Pico Bonito & Nombre de Dios National Parks.
White water rafting here is without doubt one of the best deals in La Ceiba. There are three outfitters that provide the service, and if you shop around, you will always find a deal with at least one of them. Personally, I recommend either Omega Tours (www.omegatours.info) or La Moskitia Ecoaventuras (www.lamoskitia.hn) Both offer professional service and personalized tours. You will actually find that they sometimes offer one night free lodging if you take the tour with them.
Although it might seem like a great deal, consider that it will be in a hostel like dorm room or guest house, and that you will not have the comfort of a private bath. La Villa de Soledad offers unique rooms, with spacious outdoor porches where you will find your own hammock with a heck of a view, a pleasant spacious bathroom with hot water and high ceilings with good cross ventilation that keeps the rooms clean. Without doubt, La Villa de Soledad is the best deal in La Ceiba as far as a room in the tropical rain forests in the Cangrejal River Valley.
Another great deal in La Ceiba in this area is the network of trails into Pico Bonito National Park. Since the park is on the opposite side of the river, you must get across the Cangrejal and there is no better way to do it that to cross over the hanging bridge, which spans 400 feet high above the river, providing a true “Indiana Jones” experience that you will remember for a lifetime!
Don’t miss the Cangrejal River Valley, if offers some of the best deals in La Ceiba, as a matter of fact, in all of Honduras!
