The North Coast

The northern coastine of Honduras is a long and dramatic expanse of isolated beaches interrupted only by the small fishing villages of Omoa, Tela, and La Ceiba and the historic town of Trujillo with its old Spanish fortress and fading colonial buildings.

A number of peaceful Garifuna communities, of Arawak Indian and West African descent, are dotted between the main coastal towns.

The national park of Pico Bonito is set further inland from La Ceiba, a cloud forest encompassing seven different ecosystems, popular for white-water rafting and abundant with wildlife including jaguars, armadillos and monkeys. The mangroves at Cuero y Salado provide a biological reserve for endangered aquatic mammals such as the elusive manatee and many species of migratory birds. Honduras’s industrial capital, San Pedro Sula is located just one hour inland from the coast, a hub of economic activity sprawled beneath the flanks of the Merendon Mountain range.
