Most travelers that come through La Ceiba do so on the way to the Bay Islands of Roatan or Utila. Because of this, very few of them actually overnight in La Ceiba. They are in a big hurry to get to the Honduras’ famous Caribbean Islands. Many never figure out what they are missing out by not staying overnight in La Ceiba and explore the surroundings. The truth is that a trip that includes the Bay Islands and the Cangrejal River is the perfect Central America vacation!
Without doubt, the nicest and most versatile area within La Ceiba is the Cangrejal River Valley. This area is only 10 km. (6 Miles) from town.
