We went to Roatan for our honeymoon, and decided to begin our trip with two nights in La Ceiba relaxing at the Diving Pelican Inn. We found this place thanks to the reviews on TripAdvisor, and made just the right choice. We were totally exhausted after our wedding, and the Diving Pelican Inn was just the right place to chill out and recuperate for a few days. There was an amazing palapa (covered patio) with beers and juices available on the honor system and the most comfortable hammocks you have ever experienced in your entire life. There is also a beautiful quiet beach outside, with the occasional herd of cows wandering by occasionally (yes, I'm serious). Sooo relaxing. Jim and Cathryn can set up some cool expeditions, but we thought that the highlight of this place was just being right there. We didn't want to leave.
Our room was very comfortable, with a great selection of movies and a soft and comfortable bed. It was very clean. And we loved the breakfast that Jim prepared for us each morning, full of hearty eggs and fresh fruit. Jim can arrange pickups and dropoffs at the San Pedro Sula airport and the Roatan ferry dock. There is a fabulous restaurant, Paradise Found, right at the end of the beach.
I am a former Peace Corps Volunteer, and the whole time, I kept thinking that I wished someplace like this had been in the country where I did Peace Corps. It was an affordable and fun way to get a little bit of pampering and relaxation. So, if you are in the Peace Corps Honduras, get thee to the Diving Pelican Inn!
