La Ceiba is a port city on the northern coast of Honduras, situated in Central America. According to legend, the city was named after a giant Ceiba tree grew near the docks, initially becoming a tourist attraction in itself for many decades. La Ceiba forms part of the south eastern boundary of the Gulf of Honduras and is host to over 200,000 permanent residents, though at most times of the year tourists form the majority with generally over half a million residing there at any one time.
Party-goers typically lust over the buzzing nightlife and late night clubs that are synonymous with La Ceiba. Nearly all the action is over the estuary in Barrio La Isla, which has become somewhat of a mecca for Hondurans who want to let loose for a few days. Away from the party scene there are several beaches, though many of them are deemed polluted and unsafe so remain largely untouched by tourists. The downtown area has a similarly neglected vibe, but remains more of a tourist hub due to the transport links to La Ceiba’s natural landscapes. There are buses that run to Pico Bonito National Park, the picturesque Cayos Cochinos and the stunning white water on the Rio Cangrejal.
The town is relatively small so many of the locals will have knowledge of all the major sights and their transport links; it is advised to have the name of the desired destination written on a piece of paper for easy communication. A taxi rank lies in the centre of the town which is within a relatively short distance from the port, though it is worthwhile negotiating a price before entry.
