Day 10 : Discovery of new islands

For those who want an adventure in the jungle, to meet the indigenous peoples, excursions can be organized from La Ceiba to La Moskitia (which is a little the Central American Amazon). However, there is a need for several days.

Day 15 : Second day of exploring the jungle

We continue this excursion to the jungle.

Day 16 : Immersion in local culture

Take a day to visit the Garifuna fishing villages around La Ceiba.

Day 17 : Back to reality

Go back to La Ceiba to take a bus to San Pedro Sula, or a plane (or bus, but much longer) to Tegucigalpa. From nature to city, change is rather radical...

Day 18 : End of stay

Plane to France.
