La Ceiba, Honduras – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

The fourth largest city in Honduras, and considered to be the nightlife capital of the country.

Houses a massive Carnival celebration in May each year, during at which time over 500,000 tourists invade the city. If you’re looking to meet women, I’d only come to this city during Carnival, otherwise it’s hard to make a strong case for La Ceiba.

POPULATION: 200,000

NIGHTLIFE IN LA CEIBA

6.75/10 

La Ceiba is a bit disappointing for what is supposed to be the best Honduran city for nightlife. Perhaps it depends on the time of year. I can only responsibly recommend two places:

I recommend: Casona or Hibou

 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Come to La Ceiba for a party on your way to Roatan, or for a party on your way back. The weather is a bit uncomfortable with the humidity, and there’s not much to do. The city lacks culture and is more than a little rundown.


OVERALL RATING: 6.25/10
