La Ceiba offers many different activities for our students. It is a vibrant, lively town which beats to the rhythm of its Latin, Caribbean and Afro-Antillian culture.
The "Zona Viva" is an area along the beach where most of the restaurants and night clubs are located. Central Park is a pleasant shaded area in the center of town and the beautiful Standard Park just minutes away. There are many hotels, restaurants, and a modern cinema.
White water rafting and kayaking are a thrilling attraction and the beaches surrounding La Ceiba are safe and clean. You can ascend into the majestic cloud forest of the "Pico Bonito" Natural Reserve, and hike from near sea-level up to 8,000 feet.
You will also discover the Fauna the Flora, several exotic waterfalls and incredible views of the Caribbean Coast and the Bay Islands. The Picturesque mountain peak, "Pico Bonito" is a landmark on the north coast of Honduras and without a doubt makes La Cieba an important Eco-Tourism destination.
A ferry boat or a 20 minute flight from here takes you to the turquoise waters of the Bay Islands, Utila, Roatan and Guanaja.
The Bay Islands. Roatan, Guanaja and Utila make up the Bay Islands that are located on the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere and extend from 20 to 40 miles off the coast of Honduras.
The Islands have a heritage and flavor all their own because they were settled originally by descendants of British privateers. English is so widely spoken on the Islands that many people don't speak Spanish at all. They are home to a flourishing lobster and shrimp fishing industry. Palm trees fringe the turquoise blue and crystal clear waters renowned for the scuba diving and leisure resorts.
The Bay Islands are where you can discover an entire world for yourself, whether it be fishing, diving, snorkeling, exploring nature trails and exotic plants or simply relaxing on the beach.
