Language

Spanish.

Getting Local Currency

Lempira. You are advised to acquire local currency (in small denominations if possible) in advance of a visit to Pico Bonito. You can change US dollar cash or travellers cheques in Honduran banks and may be able to obtain cash advances via the few ATMs in larger towns and cities. You may have to ask your bank to authorise withdrawals before you leave the UK and amounts may be limited.  However these ATMs do not always accept foreign cards, which are also not usable in many smaller hotels and commerce.

Time Difference

GMT -6 hours.

Combines With

A beach wind down at Tela, 1.5 hours drive from La Ceiba (103 km); diving and snorkelling from the island of Roatán, a short flight from La Ceiba.

Getting There

The park is just a 30mins drive south from Las Ceiba on the coast and a pleasant 2.5 hours drive from San Pedro Sula or the town’s airport.
