Hedman Alas and Viana have temporarily suspended their service to La Ceiba. We hope that they will soon re open the route. This is the purpose of this Travel Update. To provide you with a few alternatives that will help you travel between San Pedro Sula and La Ceiba.
For over a year I heard horror stories about the Tegucigalpa to Choluteca Highway due to construction. By some reports, it could take as long as 7 hours to drive the 160 kilometers between both cities. This past week, I had the opportunity to travel between Tegucigalpa and Choluteca. I am happy to report that travel time was under 2 hours.
Most anyone who has been to Copan Ruinas in the last few years complains about the highway. I was just there for the weekend and am happy to provide the following Copan Ruinas highway update. I drove from La Ceiba to Copan Ruinas last Friday and just got back home a couple of hours ago.
Travel between Roatan and Utila used to be nuisance. With no regular service scheduled between the islands, you had to travel to La Ceiba and then backtrack to the other island. Fortunately, that is all part of the past.. The Utila Dream Ferry Service now operates daily between both islands.
Since I live in La Ceiba, travel to Roatan is easy. I have two options: I can fly or take the ferry. When I first moved to Honduras, I could only fly, as there was still no ferry service available. Fortunately, we now have a state of the art ferry that is efficient, safe and fast!
