Train from Puerto Cortes to San Pedro or Tela

by goldminer

Can anybody tell me about the train? I've heard that it goes to both Tela and San Pedro Sula. Can anyone tell me what the fare is and what the schedule is? If anyone has traveled both routes, which is the best? Thanks, Bobby

Bobby -

I have not done this personally. The following information is from Honduras Tips Magazine and may well be dated:

There is regular railroad service between Puerto Cortes and Tela. The service, which departs from the Puerto Cortes Railroad Station operates on Fridays and Sundays. At time of print, the fare is Lps. 12.00 per person. Departure is at 7:00 a. m from Puerto Cortes, with an arrival at Tela around 11:00 a.m. From Tela, the departure for Cortes is at 1:00 p.m. with a 6:00 p.m. arrival at Puerto Cortes.

This is the old banana route from Tela to the port. It does not appear that there is service to San Pedro Sula.

Have a great trip!

Be careful of this- I was there a year ago in Tela and waited and waited for the train. I finally found out from one of the store owners in the area that" we know that the train is going from Tela to Puerto Cortes, only when it arrives from Puerto Cortes". I also noted a lot of weeds growing on the train tracks.

Travel Tips for San Pedro Sula

Short stop in SPS

by skullcrusher

I hadn't really planned on making a stop through San Pedro Sula (I prefer to abbreviate it to SPS). Travel issues made it necessary for me to pass through here - many of you folks who read this will have and idea of what I'm talking about. Since San Pedro Sula is a major transportation hub if you happen to be traveling through this part of Honduras there is a good chance that your bus will at least stop in this city.

Before coming to SPS I had heard many negative things about the town such as it being very ugly and dangerous. I got to spend a morning and an afternoon roaming around the downtown area and I personally didn't find it any more dangerous than your average mid-sized, third world city. The situation at night is probably much shadier. However, it IS generally bland looking and the town won't win any ''pretty city'' awards anytime in the near future. On the bright side - there are quite a few modern comforts for the traveler with numerous internet cafes, several shopping options (on the street and in stores), and numerous restaurants. I was surprised to find a Wendy's, Pizza Hut, and many other western franchises along with the usual McDonald's. Also, the costs for almost everything is about half the cost of what you might expect to pay in a Western country for similar things. Not surprisingly things are cheaper here than at the touristy area of Copan.

Of course there isn't all that much to do or see in this town other than visit the downtown area and have a quick look at the Parque Central. I heard there were some decent museums but they are a taxi ride from the downtown. I don't think a person would want to spend a significant amount of time in SPS because there are much nicer options such as Copan Ruinas, along the coast at La Ceiba, or at the Bay Islands. None the less, if you do need to make a pit stop here then at least it has some creature comforts for the road weary traveler. Like elsewhere the Honduran folks are kind and helpful, there's good food to enjoy, and nice music to dance along with.

San Pedro Sula, Honduras

by Docu2001

I wasn't in the country long enough to draw many conclusions - but I had the good fortune to meet and speak with a few of San Pedro Sula's citizens.
Honduras, like many countries in Central America, is struggling to make a place for itself in the world after an uneven political history. But from the poorest family just moving to the city and living in one of the slums scattered throughout the area, to Physicians and University administrators, members of the clergy ý all of these Hondurans were proud and confident people. They are certainly aware of their limited resources, but are nevertheless determined to make the most of what they have and to build a better future for the next generation. If the people of San Pedro Sula are any indication, I expect Honduras will have a bright future.
