  • For people who love nature and spend a day outside the city, in a relaxing atmosphere, beautiful and full of adventures, this is the perfect place. It is a charming, magical place without agglomeration of people. I could say many good things, but it is better to live the experience. Unforgettable!

  • Very nice ... River has some nice rapids worth giving it a try... Went with jungle river tours who did an excellent job
  • Only ent for a 4h hike and saw awesome waterfalls. I recommend it but not jungle eco lodge. I'd go with Omega if I would do it again.
  • I kinda don't want to tell you anything about this place... It sucks, I swear. Don't bother. Leave it all for me, please! (It's phenomenal).
  • Very nice Lodge in the Honduran Jungle.
  • 100% nature

Where to stay in La Ceiba

The north-facing coastline serves as the most popular place to stay in La Ceiba, with a range of hotels and lodges nestled right up against the beach. Budget-friendly hostels and mid-range hotels can be found throughout the city center, with the streets around Parque Swinford serving as a particularly popular area to stay. If you're looking for something a bit more natural, stay south of the city itself, at one of the villas and bed and breakfasts lining the Cangrejal River.
