Tela is a coastal town in Honduras located just 90 minutes from San Pedro Sula, the second biggest city in the country, which also has a busy airport. The capital Teguclgalpa, is situated on the south easy region of the country. This Caribbean beach resort is fast becoming a favourite international tourist destination. Its outstanding white sand beaches and surrounding tropical parks, national park, coral reef, wildlife refuge makes it an amazing cultural, nature loving and scenic region.
This beautiful coastal town was founded by one of the Spanish conquistadors in 1524. The towns importance was due to its clean water, food and medicinal plants, plus its easy access to the Caribbean Sea.
In the 16th Century Tela was used as a base for ‘buccaneers’ who roamed the seas nearby looking to attack Spanish schooners for their wares, especially for their precious metals and stones.
The reason Tela is so important to the future of Honduras, is that there is a Government and Private Sector Collaboration there, called Indura Hotel and Spa Resort. It is the first of its kind and if successful, could the start of many such projects. The enthusiasm of the Minister for Tourism, Emilio Silvestri and Tela’s Mayor, Mario Fuentes is matched by the local community and so creates an atmosphere for expansion on a national scale.
A major part of this project is the involvement and connection with the local environment and community. From construction of additional roads for transport for locals, ‘monkey bridges’ so they can continue to live in the same habitat, jobs and training for nearby residents and a sympathetic ear to the Garifunas, a community that descend from Afro-Carib origin from St Vincent. They still live nearby and have their own; religion, language and believes.
The town was put on the map when the Tela Railroad Company and United Fruit Company made their Headquarters there, as they expanded their banana growing industry from this location.
Indura is not only a luxury Hotel, it is PGA Golf Course, Spa, High Class Restaurant, but is also a National Park. It has already been visited and endorsed by the Prime Minister Juan Orlando Hernandez ,who is not only fully supportive of this project, but is actively turning his first 12 months in power to be one of the most successful to date. The majority of the country believes they now have someone who can really make a difference to their beloved Honduras.
Indura definitely represents the ‘future’ for this magnificent country, but don’t forget what else Honduras has to offer and it has so much, you do not want to miss a thing.
Let’s not ignore the fact that Central America has had a bad repetition for a number of reasons, but this is something that is being dealt with by all organisations concerned and is improving rapidly. Add to that, the fact that the majority of cities in the world have an area where security is an issue and Honduras is no different.
An idyllic place to visit near to Tela and reached by boat is Punta Sal and Micos Lagoon. This is a deserted white sand beach and waterway full of a variety of fish and wildlife. From crocodiles, dolphins, flying fish and turtles to white faced monkeys, parrots, toucan’s, lizards and snakes. Add a walk through a National Park while there and you have a taste of everything that Honduras is all about.
Pico Bonito in nearby La Ceiba, is a not only a rain forest, but has spectacular views and an array of birds that equals anywhere in the world. ‘The Lodge’ is an amazing place to stay, being in the middle of so much natural forest and wildlife. This location is not only a ‘bird watchers paradise, but is also known for its meditation, massage, relaxation and quality food and drink.
Lancetilla Botanical Gardens is also a Research Centre and so preserves the flora and fauna of not only Honduras, but from around the world. Walking around this magnificent place you get to see hundreds of exotic plants and trees. It is also home to some mammals that are in danger of extinction, plus birds, reptiles, fish and insects. There is also a training centre, laboratory, conference hall and living quarters too. A tour around Lancetilla is not only beautiful, but educational too as it reminds visitors how important it is to preserve what this planet has given us and not take it for granted.
Tela itself is vibrant, with a number of hotels, busy streets, churches, bars, restaurants and shops, all the things you expect from a typical Central American town. The main difference than most though is its average temperature of 29 degrees and a white sand beach that goes on for as far as the eyes can see.
Tela, Honduras, is not a town or a resort, it’s the symbol! It symbolises the country’s quest to be a Worldwide Tourism, Investment and Sporting Destination. There are places to visit all over the world, but this one is different, it’s not a holiday, it’s an unforgettable experience.
