Travel Tips for Tela

Independance Day

by Pieter11

Like everywhere in Central Amerika, the national Independance Day in Honduras is celebrated at the 15th of September. This day in 1820, all the Spanish colonies in the area got their independance. And still, every year this is celebrated with festivals all over the country, in every country in Central America.

At the 15th of September in 2007, I was in Tela. There I saw the way they celebrate it here. An enormous parade that walked through the streets of the town, with every group of people that have any position in the social life represented: the army is there with some of their soldiers carrying the flags of all the Central American countries. All the schoolclasses in the area are present, all dressed in white and blue suits and all making their own music and marshing on it.

And then there are many more groups: the police, the fireguards, the sportsclubs etcetera. The streets are quickly filled with people when the parade comes by and it really is a nice thing to see. When you are in the area at the 15th: definitely make time to see the Independance Day festivities!

Lazy days...

I found this great picture of the father of my friend. I saw many people relaxing in Tela. It is so hot that you have to spend a good amount of time recovering. In his case, he likes to party and this was him recovering from too much beer!

Tela Station

by Pieter11

In the 19th century Tela became famous for being an important banana producing city. The American companies Standard Fruit Company and United Fruit Company established large plantations and also invested in the railroads along the coastline. After 1930 most of these plantations were abandoned because of deceases and floods and because of this, so was the railroad.

At the boulevard in Tela Viejo, close to the bridge towards the new part, you will find the old, abandoned station that is a silent memory of the times that the trains still drove through the plantations. Today the building is hidden behind trees and is somewhere between being building and ruin.

If you want to get an insight in the world of the Central American railroads, a fascinating book "The Old Patagonia Express" by Paul Theroux is very interesting and makes you feel sad that all the railroads have been shut down nowadays.

EL RIO ESPERANZA

by kiwigal_1

About 20-30 minutes outside of Tela is the Esperanza River set amongst a beautiful backdrop of lush forest. The river is pure mountain water and serves as a reservoir for villages along its path. I have been here a couple of times to swim in the river and think it is one of the most beautiful and natural places I have seen in Honduras.

TRIUNFO DE LA CRUZ

by kiwigal_1

Triunfo de la Cruz is located in the part of Tela beach known as La Ensenada. It is a small garifuna settlement. It makes a nice day trip from Tela either walking along the beach or by car along the highway travelling east. There are many garifuna restaurants with fish or sopa de caracol being the specialty.
