Breakfast. Transfer to the Caribbean city of Tela. A little slice of heaven on the north shore, is more than the sleepy town often described. This is where to go on the Honduras Caribbean coast if you want to relax and be near/on the beach and swim in the sea. About 1h30 hour ride. Tela is located half
way between the cities of San Pedro Sula and La Ceiba. Originally the headquarters for the United Fruit Company in Honduras, Tela has a largest concentration of Garifuna villages in the World! The villages of Triunfo de La Cruz, Tornabe, San Juan and Miami are only some of the many Garifuna communities around the lovely Bay of Tela. Some of the best beaches in Honduras are found in Tela.
