La Ceiba Carnival 2012!! May 12th-26th (Tegucigalpa)
Any plans for May? What about if you go to Ceiba and enjoy one of the biggest events in Honduras?
La Ceiba is the third largest city in Honduras, but it is certainly its liveliest!! The carnival in La Ceiba is the biggest celebration of its kind in Central America, and each year, it promises to be every bit as lively and popular as the prior celebrations!
Hundreds of thousands pour into town to enjoy the festivities. The main celebration takes place in late May and includes a big parade that features plenty of colorful characters. After this parade ends, thousands of revelers remain in the streets and the city basically becomes one large street party. Food and beverages are sold all night long, and partygoers can pick up souvenirs on the side.
While you are not partying in the streets with hundreds of thousands of other people you have a plenty of things to do in the city. La Ceiba visitors should find it easy to arrange fun eco-tours, for example, and there are area beaches to relax on. Visiting Garifuna villages is just one more way to keep busy on the side, and the option to head out to the Bay Islands is also an idea. In other words, your La Ceiba Carnival experience can be blended with any other number of rewarding experiences.
