Van Ride from San Pedro Sula to La Ceiba

You can fly into either city, San Pedro Sula or La Ceiba.  The best deal on tickets sent us to San Pedro Sula.  There is a local bus you can take but with 7 people it $20/person for a three hour van ride.

The road is paved and is two lane.  However with all the passing, it turns quickly into a three lane.  There are a couple of checkpoints along the road and it is a bit strange to see policemen with automatic weapons.

The slowest vehicle is the horse drawn cart and I was surprised at the number of them we saw.

I will post pics from Flickr.

Vacation Began at the Miami Airport

We were blessed this trip to have my Dad, niece and nephew join us. They came from Pittsburgh and we came from New York. We met in Miami and began our journey there.

We are all fresh and excited about the trip.

Papa is walking around and I have the camera.  Sitting in air conditioning with no sunburn or bug bites…:o) – I remember how nice it was to get back to Miami…

Utila, Bay Islands – Honduras

Do you remember all the countries in Central America? I often have to look at a map to remind my self and decided to just add a map to my blog.

El Salvador
Costa Rica

Honduras is between Guatemala and Nicaragua. Utila is one of the Bay Islands off the the northern coast of Honduras. This is where we spent our week.

Utila Scooter Pumpkin Hill

I just uploaded the first video of the trip.  (Many more to come!)  This video is of the east side of the island with the highest point of the island in the background – Pumkin Hill.

Come back later for more.
