The best deals in La Ceiba can 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. 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. Normally you will not have the comfort of a private bath in your room. La Villa de Soledad offers unique rooms, with spacious outdoor porches. You will find your own hammock with a heck of a view. A clean spacious bathroom with lots of hot water is part of the deal. High ceilings offer good cross ventilation that keeps the rooms cool. Without doubt, La Villa de Soledad is one of the best deals in La Ceiba. It certainly is 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 River. There is no better way to do it that to cross over the 400 foot hanging bridge, over the river. It provides a true “Indiana Jones” experience that you will remember for a lifetime!
Don’t miss the Cangrejal River Valley! It offers some of the best deals in La Ceiba, as a matter of fact, in all of Honduras!
