There is one city in particular that has a well deserved reputation as friendly and hospitable city. Of course, I am referring to “Honduras’ bride”, La Ceiba. This Caribbean city is a true melting pot. The truth is that La Ceiba offers the best of two worlds. It is friendly coastal city in Central America. It is also a Caribbean City that loves to dance to the beat of drums.
All about La Ceiba
If you visit La Ceiba and spend the night in one of the downtown hotels, be ready to be woken by the siren. The Siren in La Ceiba is unlike those many cities in the world, where a siren means danger. The one we have in La Ceiba is more like a clock, and helps you know what time it is.
