Pico Bonito Hotels
There are several different Pico Bonito Hotels. All of them of course are located around Pico Bonito National Park. A magnificent National Park that is the second largest in Honduras and offers a huge biodiversity because of the different altitudes that this protected area spans, that goes from a very wet tropical rain forest at sea level facing the Caribbean Sea, eventually transitioning to a very humid Tropical Cloud Forest in the higher altitudes and then to a tropical very dry forest in the south side of the Park.
Most Pico Bonito Hotels are located in the Cangrejal River Area or in the area around the community of El Pino, which is located about 15 km. west of the city of La Ceiba. This is precisely the area where you will find the famous Lodge at Pico Bonito, as well as a couple of other properties.
This highest concentration of Pico Bonito Hotels is in the Cangrejal River Valley, which is very close to the City of La Ceiba, within 7 miles of downtown La Ceiba you will find 9 small lodges and inns. For a list of all hotels in the Cangrejal River Valley, check www.cangrejalriver.com.
Although each and every one of the Pico Bonito Hotels located along the Cangrejal River is unique, there is no doubt that La Villa de Soledad Boutique Bed and Breakfast and Eco Jungle Lodge has a special charm. 5 comfortable rooms, each with a private bath with hot water, high speed internet and some of the most magnificent views of the mountains and the Cangrejal River will certainly enchant you!
Huge open areas, all facing outdoors and generously spaced areas with hammocks provide the perfect environment to relax in nature. In addition, innkeepers, Soledad and John will go out of their way to make you feel at home and help you arrange all of the different activities that are within close reach of the different Pico Bonito Hotels: white water rafting, hiking in the jungle, zip line canopy tours, visits to hot springs, a tour to Cayos Cochinos are just a few of the many different options available. They will also help you arrange your local transportation to and from La Villa de Soledad.
A word of caution: Pico Bonito, a towering mountain that rises behind the city has become an icon for La Ceiba, and there are some properties that use the name of this icon to promote themselves. Some of these are located within the city, so make sure you double check where the hotel is really located, so that you can be sure that you have really booked one of the Pico Bonito Hotels!
