A Hike in La Ceiba, Honduras - Frayed Passport

A few years ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer and travel near San Pedro Sula and hike through Pico Bonito National Park, La Ceiba Honduras. La Ceiba is a port city on the northern coast of Honduras in Central America. It’s located on the southern edge of the Caribbean, forming part of the south eastern boundary of the Gulf of Honduras.

With an estimated population of over 170,000 living in approximately 170 residential areas (called colonias or barrios), it is the fourth largest city in the country and the capital of the Honduran department of Atlántida.

Below are a few pictures from the La Ceiba cloud forest hike—enjoy!

Ok, so maybe this isn’t from the hike itself–but it’s one of my favorite travel photos. I took this from a rooftop near the national park.
