At Pico Bonito, we stayed at a little eco-hostel called Jungle River Lodge. The pull-out from the river rafting excursion was literally at the lodge itself.
The lodge is about 7km up the Cangrejal canyon from the city of La Ceiba (which is the jumping off point for ferries to the Honduran Bay Islands). From the open air veranda of the hostel, this is the morning light meeting the trough of the valley. The water was the perfect temperature for a morning swim and the gentle breeze coming up the valley provided therapy for the bustling daily commute in San Pedro.
