Welcome to La Ceiba

There's otherwise little of interest in Ceiba itself: local beaches are polluted and unsafe and the downtown has a crumbling, neglected air, although it's all lively and friendly. Despite this, most travelers will find themselves here at some point as Ceiba is the transportation hub for the Bay Islands, as well as a great base for exploring the Pico Bonito National Park, the idyllic Cayos Cochinos and the world-class white water on the Río Cangrejal.
