Honduras’ colonial town of Trujillo, founded by Spanish conquistadors in 1525, is Central America’s first mainland cruise destination!
The fascinating history of the banana trade influences our architecture and theme. “Banana Coast” offers a fun day in the tropics.
More than just the beach, Banana Coast has natural diversity for visitors to experience firsthand:
- Waterfalls, Rivers & Streams
- Tropical rainforest
- Guaimoreto Lagoon Nature Reserve with mangrove ecosystem, rare roseate spoonbills and hummingbirds
- Sandy beaches, coral reefs, and crystal waters
The Caribbean destination is supported by the Campo del Mar Park System, featuring agriculture, flowers and gardens, animals and wildlife, a historical museum, 15th Century Spanish road, rivers and beach.
The Bay of Trujillo is a deep water natural harbor and was the first mainland landing spot of Christopher Columbus in 1502 during his fourth and final voyage to the New World. A two-ship cruise dock is planned for the future at the heart of the colonial city, near the Santa Barbara Fort, cannons and charming cobblestone streets.
Honduras has a rich cultural heritage. At Banana Coast, visitors will experience the cultures of the Afro-Caribbean Garifuna, and the peaceful Pech Indians.
