WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
There are two options for arriving into Honduras, either to fly into San Pedro Sula or direct to La Ceiba. If you fly into La Ceiba you will be collected from the airport by a friendly local staff member, who will then escort you to your home in La Ceiba, a port town on the north coast of Honduras, where you will live for the duration of your stay. If you are arriving into San Pedro Sula you will then make your way to La Ceiba via bus, detailed instructions for which will be provided prior to your departure. If you choose the San Pedro Sula option please aim to arrive no later than 2pm in order to make the last bus.
