... Melo had prepared a box of survival materials such as clean razors that Chabelo needs in prison. To my surprise, when we arrived at the prison, which was off the main highway and down a dirt path through a pineapple field owned by Dole fruits, we were met at the front gate by Chabelo and a number of police guards. The atmosphere was relaxed and cordial, and the police including the commander greeted Melo whom they have seen on many ...
... for my passport I flashed back to the side draw of my previous hotel and realized I had left it behind. Surprisingly no panic overcome me like usual, no tears, no stress. I just processed my options. Call and see if they have it, go back and get it tomorrow, see if they can post it, but I don't trust the post. So I called mum first to let her know I had arrived safe and sound and fill her in on my mishap. To which she said well I'm surprised you've made it ...
But Copan has a couple of additional attractions and a dusty adventure was undertaken to the following day - 1 1/2 hrs to go 24km on the dirt road lead us to the stunning thermal hot springs. The dustbath of a ride was well worth it to cake myself in local clay, steam myself over the 80 deg C river and conversate for hours with the lovely Theresa of Oregon.

Historical Traveler Reviews Palma Real Beach Resort & Villas La Ceiba
I stayed here for 5 days back in September 2003 when it was still the Barcelo Palma Real. But I think I still could have a few reasonable things to say.
I just returned from the Palma Real after a 1 week trip with my wife, son and a couple of friends. We usually travel to the cheaper spots (San Andres, Margarita) so my expectations were not high.
we stayed in Palma Real Beach on Dec 29 to Jan 5 and it was a beautiful week. we had some problems but I think There is no vacation without a problem. first of all when we arrived at the hotel we found out that our travel agency bell air reserved a room out side of the hotel and it was not nice. before you go make sure that your room is inside of the hotel building but the hotel stuff helped us out. thanks to you carla...fabio was carrying our luggage and he is really really nice and reliable. you can count on him when you say something to him he runs. his dream is to come Canada he wears canadian hat, amblems and everything. we loved you Fabio. and Kenny, the waiter, he is one of the best. one you make friend with him, he serves you everywhere and no matter what he does what you ask immediately. internet sources say that locals speak english but it is not true. as far as I have seen nobody speaks english but it will not matter to you because they are really friendly. towels were problem though. make sure that you dry your towels everday by yourselves because we could not get another two for one week. but before 2 days we left we asked Fabio and he right away gat for us and our friends. I told you he is great. oh by the way there will be a representative Nancy Lopez. I dont Know how se became a representative because She doesnt Know anything. dont ask her anything. before you go make sure that you go a travel clinic because food is really different and we have been all suffered from diareha. and be really careful about sun protection. eventhough I have dark and not senstive skin I was dying from sunburn. theri animation show is not really great but you will laugh. if you dont like spanis music, eventhoug you like get your own cd because after a while you will be bored with the music. but they are trying. you can change the music if you want. ask antonio he will help you. he is really funny and nice guy. you can do lots of things in Honduras. definitely you go Canopy. it is really fun. you will enjoy green and blue at the same time..it is great we enjoyed so much.by the way famous taxi driver is hector you will find him easily. if you want to go city dont go there with turaser tour. call the hector or milton they will help you show you around. we loved the people and the place. you will love too...
We stayed at the Palma Real Beach Hotel in La Ceiba from Jan 30 - Feb 6, 2004. It was myself, my husband, and our 2 children aged 5 & 9. The resort is a nice smaller size, which we prefer, and it was just our plane load of people at the resort - well at least until Friday when all the locals descend upon the resort in herds. Overall I would rate this a solid 3* resort. Gorgeous scenery - an ocean on one side, a mountain on the other. Not a ton of stuff to do, but if you're looking to hang out by the pool or beach and relax all week then this is perfect for you.
TDSB March break 2005.
Paid CDN$1580 for 2 including all taxes for my wife and I (30 and 31 years old)
Hotel direct phone number ------ (WARNIG $0.50 to $1.00 per min.)
Hotel web site: ------
Rated a 4 star, more like a 3 star. But very acceptable. Met great people had an awesome time! Well worth the cost.
While there you MUST take the Canopy Tour (or zip line tour) US$35! other countries charge over US$100!
Also, ask the front desk for Hector the cab driver. His local # is 440-0100 or cell 994-1760. For the same price as the bus, he will take you into town, show you around, translate, and help find whatever you are looking for.
We will post more later, including pictures!

WE loved this resort. I saw all the negative comments and was somewhat leary when we booked it. This is a resort where you get more than you pay for considering the reasonable price and location.
i went to the barcelo hotel for 2 weeks during the winter break. I very pleased to escape from winter and spend chrismas and new years under teh hot sun. The outside decoration were well organized with chrismas lights all over the hotel, witch still gave a warm feeling of home and chrismas.
My boyfriend & I went to the Palma Real Beach Resort in Honduras on an all-inclusive last minute sell off. It being my first time traveling outside of North America, I was not sure what to expect. Contrary to what I thought I had a wonderful time.
