    Transporte Cristina offers direct buses from SPS – La Ceiba for L180
    You can inquire about bus schedules via WhatsApp +504 3161-2564

    The journey takes around 4 hours and they will make a stop at a restaurant/buffet place in Tela half way through the journey for about 20 mins.

    La Ceiba – Ferry Terminal
    – there are buses leaving from the Center (Terminal Central de Autobuses) to the Terminal for the Utila Ferry (Muelle de Cabotaje). Look out for people yelling „Muelle“ from the bus, should be L13 and takes 25 mins
    – for the way back from the ferry terminal, just wait for the bus where you got off when arriving. Frequency is every 20 mins roughly

    To Jungle River Lodge/Yaruca:
    – Go to the Terminal de Buses San José and ask for the Yaruca bus, locals should direct you to the right spot. There is one bus at 8 AM and another one at 10:00/10:30 (not sure), don’t know anything about cost and schedule though

    From SPS onwards:
    – to D&D (Lago Yojoa) as already posted, take the El Mochito bus for L60, will take around 2,5 h due to bad roads close to the lake
    – to Copán, take the Transporte Casasolas bus for L160, should take around 5,5h

    From SPS to Guatemala/Río Dulce
    – in the bus terminal, go through the food court and down the escalator, after walking for a bit exit on the right, there will be a bunch of mini buses
    – ask for Puerto Cortes and go to a bus that already has people in it – journey should take around 1,5h and costs L60
    – from Puerto Cortes, ask for Corinto/Frontera – after getting off the bus, take two left turns, that’s where the buses leave. There‘s two options: L35 for a big chicken bus who will make many stops and L84 for a minivan which is slightly faster. I opted for the minivan

    Once at the border, border crossing was smooth, on Guatemala side ask for buses to Rio Dulce

    The main bus terminal in La Ceiba to/from San Pedro Sula and Rio Cangrejal is Estación de Autobuses San Jose. Coordinates 15.776926, -86.800961.

    The buses to/from the ferries are about 1.5 kilometres away from that at 15.784138, -86.792643. The bus will cost you L13 to get to/from the ferries and it takes a long, convoluted route so leave plenty of time. It took us about 40 minutes.
    To go from the port to central La Ceiba you can wait outside a small shop about 95 metres from the entrance to the port. We waited about 50 minutes before a bus showed up.

    I’ve read that a colectivo from centro to the port is meant to cost L50 per person but you’ll need some serious haggling skills.

    The Utila Princess doesn’t run any more. There are two ferries a day to Utila with Utila Dream at 9am and 4.30pm. It costs L800.
    Galaxy Wave will take you to Roatan at 9.30am and 4.30pm for US$36.

    To get to Rio Cangrejal or Pico Bonito National Park you can take a bus from Estación de Autobuses San Jose. You need the bus to Yaruca which leaves at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. It costs L30.

  5. Karolina

    La Ceiba to D&D brewery ( los naranjos) take the bus Mirna from La Ceiba to San Pedro (121Lps) around 3,5-4 hours then on San Pedro terminal take bus “El mochito” (50 lps) there is a stop D& D around 1,5-2 hours.

  6. Martina

    San Pedro Sula to La Ceiba
    – Different bus companies available
    – Diana Express (2nd class) costs around 115 HNL, duration approx, 5h, longer than they say it would take

    La Ceiba to Utila
    – At the moment there are two different companies operating – Utila Princess (114 HNL) and Utila Dream (200 HNL)
    – Duration approx. 45 min. depending on the weather
    – Utila Dream La Ceiba to Utila 9:30 am and 4:00 pm
    – Utila Princess Utila to La Ceiba around 6:30 am
    – There is a morning and afternoon ferry, Utila Princess is the older one and people say it is more likely to get seasick on this one but I was fine taking it.
