guaranteed and daily departures with 2 passengers only

Day 1: San Pedro Sula  - La Ceiba (Honduras)
At your convenient time our guide awaits you at the reception of your hotel or at the airport. After a short city-tour through San Pedro Sula you are transferred to Pico Bonito Lodge close to the vibrant city of La Ceiba on the Honduran northern coast. The Lodge Pico Bonito is located at the foothills of the second largest national park in Honduras, the Pico Bonito NP, offering 300 hectares of private forest with guest-only hiking trails and a wide range of other nature activities. Accommodation in cabin-style features privacy, wood floors and a private veranda. Two overnights in the Lodge at Pico Bonito.

Day 2: Pico Bonito Lodge
Today you have plenty of time to discover the Pico Bonito NP - one of Honduras' most beautiful national parks, which is home to a huge range of animal species. Some species that inhabit the park are Bairds, Tapir, White Tailed Deer, Northern Raccoon, Nine banded Armadillo, Naked Tailed Armadillo, Jaguar, Mountain Lion, Kinkajou, Spider Monkey, White Faced Monkey, as well as many bird species. Time to go hiking and refresh yourselves at one of the numerous waterfalls.

Day 3: La Ceiba - Lancetilla - San Pedro Sula
In the morning you leave the lodge with your Mesoamerica Travel guide heading back to San Pedro Sula. En route, we visit the biggest Botanical Garden of Mesoamerica, Lancetilla. The United Fruit Company founded the gardens over 70 years ago as an experimental botanical site. Here you find hardwood, medicinal and ornamental plants as well as tropical fruit trees from all over the world. You see how the bamboo forest absorbs some 90% of the daylight, admire the long rows of majestic Royal Palms or try exotic fruits fresh from the tree. An Orchid Garden and a Natural Reserve with a beautiful 1,200 hectares of virgin tropical rainforest make up this wonderful natural area. We then proceed to your hotel. One overnight in San Pedro Sula.

Day 4: San Pedro Sula - Omoa - Puerto Barrios (Guatemala) - Punta Gorda (Belize)
In the morning, once again we leave San Pedro Sula in the direction of the Caribbean coast. This time we head towards Omoa, a small fishing village close to the Guatemalan border. There we visit the historical San Fernando Fortress built by the Spaniards to protect the coastline and ships from attacks by British pirates. The fortress offers a magnificent view of the bay and the Merendón mountain range. About noon we cross the border to Guatemala and shortly thereafter we arrive at the small port of Puerto Barrios, where your guide bids farewell. You take a small boat to cross the bay of Amatique and about 1 1/2 hours later you arrive at Punta Gorda in Belize. You are met by a hotel representative at the terminal and transferred to Belcampo Lodge which is situated on a hilltop in the nature reserve Laughing Falcon. Two nights lodging in your privately sited suite with comfortable sleeping and relaxing space, screened fresh-air veranda, and luxurious tiled spa-style bath.

Day 5: Belcampo Lodge
The main building of the lodge takes full advantage of the views, with two floors of public space giving a close view of toucans, telescopes ready for spotting wildlife. In addition the lodge disposes of a Spa and offers a variety of tours and activities. Discover the nature reserve's diverse fauna and flora on a hiking tour, visit the nearby Mayan Ruins of Lubaantun or Nim Li Punit, go for a boat adventure on the Rio Grande, a hiking tour in one of the famous caves close to the lodge, a half- or full-day snorkling-, diving- or fly fishing trip.
