Pico Bonito National Park
The most diverse park in Honduras, Pico Bonito covers an extension of land that goes from sea level to as high as 7,500 ft, and in effect boasts the largest change of altitude in Honduras. Named after the mountain that lies just south of La Ceiba, Pico Bonito has become a landmark for La Ceiba, and is will without doubt play an important role in making of La Ceiba an important eco tourism destination in the years to come. The area is also rich in bird life, with 198 different species (about 28% of the total bird species found in Honduras). There is also a rich variety of vegetation supporting the animal life, including primary forests, lush mangroves and different types of palm.
On a clear day, you can see, and almost touch Cayos Cochinos; the small islands are visible to the east-northeast of La Ceiba. Although from this particular viewpoint, what you see is one island, the reality is, that there are two islands as well as a series of smaller keys. Cayos Cochinos is National Marine Park in Honduras and is protected by law.
Located approximately 24 km. east of La Ceiba, on the highway that leads to Trujillo. This small oceanside lagoon is totally surrounded by mangrove forests, where a variety of tropical aquatic birds can be seen. In addition, there are 8 troops of monkeys that inhabit the area, of which some are howler monkeys and the others are white face monkeys.
Cangrejal River Rafting
Some of the best white water rafting in Central America is to be found right here in La Ceiba. The Cangrejal river offers class II, III and IV rapids, all within a short 25 minute drive from downtown La Ceiba.
There are now two different Canopy tours operating in La Ceiba. The first is located on the banks of the Cangrejal River, only 7 km on a scenic dirt road from the Saopin Bridge over the Cangrejal River. The second Canopy Tour in the area is located in Sambo Creek, on the road towards Trujillo, a couple hundred yards past the entrance to Sambo Creek; on the mountain side of the road you will see the sign....Read more

My husband and I and another couple enjoyed 5 wonderful days in the roomy Ceiba Tree Lodge. Richard and ana have created a beautiful place to stay. We have never had accomodations quite like it! Great birding, beautiful, expansive gardens, well cared for by a friendly staff. The kitchen is well-stocked with implements, and cooking there is great fun! Richard and ana are kind, helpful, and know how to get things done in Honduras. I highly recommend Villas Pico Bonito.

We just returned from two and half weeks in Honduras in august 2010. We spent four invigorating days in the Cangrejal River Lodge (Villas Pico Bonito). We had only planned on staying three days but couldn't pry ourselves away!
Richard and his wife anna built the place and their love for it comes through in every detail. We opted to stay in the Ceiba Tree Lodge and would heartily recommend it. It is a masterpiece. It's like living in a comfortable tree house surrounded by the sights and sounds of the jungle but with all the comforts of home. We fell in love with the place immediately! The Ceiba Tree and the other lodges are scattered around a compound that is a botanical garden of tropical trees and flowers. There is also a crystal clear infinity pool set above the river and the rainforest beyond. We spent ample time in the pool as well as in the warm Rio Cangrejal flowing by below.
After relaxing by the pool on our first day we hiked to the El Bejuco Waterfall and soaked in the spray of the sixty meter falls. The entrance to the trail is over a suspension bridge a short walk from the lodge.
The next day we went rafting on the Rio Cangrejal, a trip that Richard helped us organize. That was a thrilling and beautiful ride that also included some cliff jumping.
On our last full day we rode the local bus to a small town called Las Mangas and set off on another hike to the village of La Muralla and some fabulous swimming holes.
Richard and anna are friendly and helpful hosts. Richard arranged transport for us from the Roatan ferry to his place and back to La Ceiba for our bus connection. We never missed not having our own transportation. Richard will offer advice or will help arrange adventures in the area, or you may just wish to stay close to the pool and soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful place.

My family and I stayed in the Ceiba Tree Lodge for 4 nights, and loved every minute. The staff was exceptional, the location was perfect (beautiful view of the Rio Cangrejal and the nearby waterfall, and only a 10 minute walk to great hiking trails), the food was delicious, the pool was beautiful and clean, and the host and his family (Richard, Ana, and Mildred) were gracious, kind and very sincerely wonderful people. Lucy was the most gentle, laid-back mastiff I have ever met - we all loved her. We are so glad we travelled out of La Ceiba to stay in this area, because the beauty of Pico Bonito National Park was worth the extra distance. Thanks to everyone at the eco resort!
