The capital of eco-tourism in the area, La Ceiba started life port city on the northern coast of Honduras. Originally named after the large ceiba tree that once stood at the centre of the city, today La Ceiba has grown to become a thriving tourism destination for those who like to explore.  On the shores of the Congrejal River and just 30 minutes drive from La Ceiba, is the Pico Bonito National Park where you can enjoy a day filled with river rafting, ziplining, hiking and mountain biking. Another delightful way to soak up La Ceiba is by taking a day cruise out to Cayos Cochinos, a network of picturesque islands that boast some of the area’s most photogenic landscapes together with excellent snorkelling opportunities. The baleada is a dietary staple and one of the most common street foods in Honduras. It is made of a thick flour tortilla which is folded and filled with refried beans, quesillo or cheese and a crème fraiche.
