Activities & Sports
With a portion of the second-largest barrier reef in the world, Honduras is one of the premier diving destinations in the world. There is no end to the outdoor activities you can find here from golfing and hiking, to horseback riding and whale shark spotting, and the highly recommended Canopy tour. Natural hot springs are located near Palma Real Caribe-Beach Resort and they offer natural volcanic mud for your skin while you bathe at the hot springs.
Dining & Nightlife
Most of La Ceiba's nicest restaurants are found around the Zona Viva area, which is generally the best place to grab a bite. Arrecife (best for seafood), Playa Taty, El Guapos, and La Palapa are a few options. Many of these restaurants convert to bars after food service ends, so dress appropriately if you want to hang around. For bars & nightclubs try Expatriados, Snake Bar, or Hibou. In Roatan there is Lobster Pot, Dixie & Mavis, or Bida. And in the evening Aura nightlclub, Rick's for live music, Nova's for dancing, and Sundowner's for catching a sunset.
La Ceiba has a Mall with several shops; the most popular souvenirs stores are called "El Bueno Amigo." In Roatan shopping can be found in the West End and Cruise Ship Market. Pottery, junco art, woodcarvings, Maya replicas, and coffee are popular souveniers from Honduras.
