I would like to discuss La Cieba -- from weather to sand fleas

Downers Grove, IL

Weather is actually a little cooler than other parts of Honduras. San Pedro Sula is in a valley and EXTREMELY hot!!!

I walked by foot most of the time in Ceiba and didn't really feel all that hot. There are a lot of vendors selling bags of water or diluted orange juice for about 20 cents (4 lempiras).

I didn't note any sand fleas, but the beach isn't the most beautiful in the world, either. If you want to see a typical Carribean beach, I would suggest taking the ferry to one of the Bay Islands. I liked Utila, not as large as Roatan, and everyone says to stay away from Guana for some reason.

There are some former drug traffickers who were deported from the USA, so if an african-looking caribbean who speaks great english comes up to you and starts to reminisce about new york... take heed. He probably wants to either sell you something, or follow you around until you give him money.

Any other questions??? There is a good number of ex-patriates there... best place to look is at the bar called (what else?) Expatriates... it is across from the Hotel Catracho (very good deal/prices there by the way)... it's about 5 blocks from the city center.

Any other questions??? I unexpectedly met a woman there and fell for her almost immediately. We are hoping to spend more time together this fall and apply for a visa to come visit my family in the US.

Need to contact me? Goto Princeofvirginia on Myspace.... Oh,and here's a link to webshots of my pics from the trip to Honduras...

Cat -

My wife and I own a small hotel on the beach in La Ceiba. If you have any specific questions please let me know.

There are a lot of beachfront property opportunities in La Ceiba. A good beach bar in a tourist area would be a great thing. You could branch off from that by adding a few beach bungalow rentals and even live on site too!!
