The Paraiso Hotel in Omoa offers a unique combination of Rainforest and Beach in a delightful, classy setting. The hotel is 16 km west of Puerto Cortes on the CA13 highway that leads to the Corinto Border crossing with Guatemala. Nestled within the small village of Paraiso, it offers 30 boutique rooms, with all the amenities you would expect in a fancy resort. Air conditioning, cable TV, a small fridge, fine mahogany furniture and a comfy orthopedic bed.
You can tell that you have arrived in a hotel that is in a class of its own from the moment you drive into the parking lot. Everything is clean and orderly. The small lobby has air conditioning and you will meet with friendly staff who sport a pleasant smile and are ready to assist you. The rooms are all on the same level and offer ideal conditions for persons with a handicap. The gardens are immaculate and manicured to perfection. The combination of grass and flowers is very pleasant to the site.
An old wooden fishing boat is part of the garden décor. Swing benches are spread throughout the garden to provide the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the garden. These benches are the ideal spot to enjoy the dawn and dusk concerts provided by the tropical birds. The pool has a nice infinity design that allows you magnificent views towards the blue Caribbean Sea that is just a few feet away. Enjoy the view from the pool or the poolside deck. Without doubt a perfect location to enjoy a colorful Caribbean sunset while you sip your favorite cocktail prepared for you at the bar.
El Paraiso Hotel in Omoa offers the best of two Worlds!
The Paraiso Hotel is ideal to relax and enjoy nature. But there is also a more active, rainforest element that is not evident when you first drive in. The nearby Rawacala Eco Park is a short walk away from the hotel. This eco park provides an opportunity to interact with the tropical rainforests of Honduras. Feel the adrenaline pumping through your body as you zip from treetop to treetop in the Canopy tour. Enjoy a half day or full day hike in the rainforest and discover beautiful pristine waterfalls hidden in the forest. Take a dip in a natural pool formed by a breathtaking waterfall… The options are almost infinite!
If you are more of a beach person, then you will enjoy renting one of the sea kayaks and paddling out into the Caribbean to exploring the nearby mangroves. Or perhaps you want to visit a traditional Garifuna Village in the nearby town of Masca. Fishing is always another possibility. This part of the Caribbean is quite protected and usually perfect to go out for a paddle. Finally, there is another important thing to do in Omoa. A visit to the San Fernando Fortress. This is within the town of Omoa, only 11 km east of Paraiso Hotel in Omoa.
I am looking forward to another trip to the Paraiso Hotel for another encounter with the rainforest and the beach! If you like to feel papered and treated with a smile, then you should plan on visiting the Paraiso Hotel in Omoa!
