Airports

by NBTMC

can you get a flight from San pedro sula to La ceiba?
How long does it take? approximate cost?
Would it be better then driving it? I'm not sure I want to take the bus. How long is the bus ride? and what does it cost from San Pedro Sula?

NB -

Yes, you can get a flight from San pedro sula to La Ceiba. It is a 35 minute trip and costs approximately $62 US with tax, per person, one-way. You can book on-line at the Islena Airlines web site at http://www.flyislena.com/

By bus the trip is approximately three hours and with the Hedman Alas luxury line costs approximately $15. You will find their web site at http://www.hedmanalas.com/

Either is infinitely better than driving yourself unless you have made the drive before.

Have fun!

Yes, you can fly from San Pedro Sula to La Ceiba, no problem. Sosa, Atlantic Airlines and Islena all do the flight. There are about 8 flights a day. Fares range from $50 to $60 one way, depending the airline. My suggestion is FLY! Do NOT ride the buses (especially Hedman Alas bus!), and car driving is at best an iffy proposition. There are several road hazards, on the road from SPS to Ceiba. Including a pretty funky one-lane bridge just before Tela. Taxis are plentiful in La Ceiba airport and quite cheap. Pay the extra money and fly, you'll be glad you did.

Hope this helps!

Travel Tips for Tela

Garifuna Tours

by calcaf38

Garifuna Tours is a small ecotourism agency based in Tela and in La Ceiba. They organize four excursions each from Tela and from La Ceiba, as well as longer trips to the Moskitia.

I emailed them before leaving, to find out if the Punta Izopo excursion was available on the date that was convenient for me. I received a response in a few hours, and I made my reservation on line by credit card.

The excursion itself was excellent - with only three participants in the group - and a good value for $31. Garifuna Tours doesn't offer a lot of options, but I sure would have liked to find an equivalent in the Santa Rosa and Gracias region.

Public Pools

by staindesign

They have 2 public pools in Tela. One at a hotel close to Telamar and another at a Teacher's resort. But i saw this sign and I thought it was really strange. Not to pee anywhere but the bathroom seems obvious to me, but hey maybe they have a problem with that. I was told by some locals they put the signs up because people just apparently pee where ever they want? hahahaha!

If you want to sleep, use insect repellent!!!

by staindesign

During the day insects don't seem to bother, probably because it is so HOT! But at night, if you aren't staying in an air conditioned place. Put repellent on before you go to sleep, the bugs (little flies) walk all over you! I would even suggest taking an insect net to put around your bed, during the rainy season of August & September!

Barely believiable

by staindesign

One of the nice areas of tela is Telamar, a large hut that is like a restaurant, and a rental place for beach chairs and ocean toys. It was such a beautiful place, i was told by locals that this place is rarely visited. But is extremely busy during semana santa (Easter week). This is a beautiful view from the hut looking out towards the little town and the bare beach!

Tela's Pier

by Pieter11

A nice spot to have a look at in Tela, is the pier you'll find in the new part of the town: Tela Nuevo. You can get here by crossing the bridge in the western part of town, and by entering the beach here immediately. After 100 metres you will see this old pier going into the Caribbean Sea.

The nicest thing here are the many fishermen that are trying to catch some fish here. With only a piece of fishing rope tied to their finger they keep it really basic, but they actually catch fish, even though I didn't see any big ones come up while I was there.

The pier itself has a railroad track on it, that dates from the times that the trains used to play an important role in the area. Today the only purpose of the tracks is to keep the pier together, because a lot of the wood is rotten away throughout the years. Especially this rotten material makes the pier as photogenic as it is, together with the wooden fishermen's boats you'll find around it.
