    Tela Things to Do

    West of the former headquarters, you will find a whole neighborhood which once housed the US employees of United Fruit. The complex looks somewhat like a Southern military base.Part of the neighborhood has been turned into an upscale resort, the Villas Telamar. This is where the beach looks cleanest and safest.

    Tela Restaurants

    We ate at the Bungalow in Tela. Its a small place that is a favorite with locals and expats alike. We wandered upon it and noticed the low prices. We asked a few expats that we ran into about it and everyone had great things to say. We loved our food and ended up staying for hours talking to Norman, the owner of the restaurant, from Louisiana. I...

  • Some cabs are armed

    La Ceiba Transportation

    One night my friend and I left the club to get a ride home, the cab driver didn't have any change once we reached our home, so he charged us double to get change from the cab. The only way he got away with it was because he pulled a GUN on us. Seriously, be careful with these cab drivers, especially at night.

    Sambo Creek Things to Do

    Sambo Creek is a grimy but interesting town to walk around for some exercise and to see what's happening.

  • Walk Along the Beach

    Sambo Creek Things to Do

    Sambo Creek has a couple of small creeks flowing into the ocean, and the beach is long and beautiful. I like to look at the old plank boats and watch the children play. If I had the time, I'd dive into the surf. But, the waves aren't big here. This isn't a good body surfing beach. Sunset on the Atlantic side is certainly less interesting than on...

  • Bargaining for a Boatman

    Sambo Creek Transportation

    Pastel painted fiberglass boats with outboard motors and shade canopies are commonplace on the Atlantic coast of Honduras, so don't shy away from bargaining for the boat ride to Cayos Cochinos, or wherever else you may want to go.There's a well established tour package deal available at the red brick and mortar building right on the beach in...
