I just found some really cheap plane tickets to La Ceiba for a long weekend next week. I know nothing about La Ceiba and I am researching like crazy to know what I am getting myself into. I think we will stay at the Villas Pico Bonito. It seems that it is about 15 minutes from La Ceiba town. We would also like to see a Garifuna village and go to Cayos Cochinos.
My first question is, how do we get around from there? Is it better to drive or are taxis cheap, safe and widely available? If driving, is it pretty crazy or relatively tame? I've never driven outside North America before.
Secondly, what in your opinion is the one must do as a day trip?
