Originally our plan was to build a beautiful home, a huge infinity pool and guest house on a gorgeous piece of land on the banks of the Rio Cangrejal right in front of the largest waterfall on the river. We named it Villas Pico Bonito.
The property next door became available unexpectedly and so with that acquisition, we were able to add four more Lodges and create the Eco Resort. We built many beautiful stone walkways and pools to join the two areas. Now the Eco Resort flows together as one through gardens of palms, heliconias (bird of paradise), gingers, hibiscus, bougainvillea and many other beautiful plants from around the jungle. We renamed it Villas Pico Bonito Jungle Eco Resort.
The resort is built on a spectacular section of the river, deep in the cloud forested jungle of Pico Bonito National Park. However we are just fifteen minutes from La Ceiba, close to party central, the "Zona Viva" with its beach restaurants, discos and small casino. Want to Golf, play the 9 hole golf course at the Club Antoni. Like shopping? There are two supermarkets, one of which owned by Walmart in La Ceiba and numerous malls and shops close by downtown.
The La Ceiba airport is thirty minutes away, the ferries to the islands twenty minutes. We can arrange pick up and drop for a small charge should you wish. Taxis are available and car rentals from most of the well known companies.
Bird watching is a wonderful way to spend time. We have benches throughout the grounds, strategically placed for you to enjoy your hobby. We have planted hundreds of flowering plants to attract Colibri, Humming Birds. In the trees and canopy, birds of the Jungle abound. We frequently see Mot Mots, Toucans, Collared Trogons, Kiskadees, Red Legged Honey Suckers, Oropendulos and many other varieties of birds.
We are close to 4 great hiking trails, the Guaruma, the Mapache, El Vampiro and Los Lobos. Rafting centers are close by. Zip lining in the canopy is just a short walk away. Horse back riding and many other activities and tours are available. Check our tours and activities page for additional information or just ask us.
Our Lodges have full kitchens (Jungle Lodge, kitchenette). Don't want to cook? Enjoy delicious grilled foods and fruit juices come to our Hidden Paradise Bar and Grill (Open Wednesday through Sunday). The Hidden Paradise offers a full range of soft drinks as well as a fully stocked bar where you can enjoy a variety of beverages and excellent cocktails while sunning and swimming in our infinity pool. Our large infinity pool has a sun area as well as a beach entrance, fountains, a waterfall and a fantastic view of the Jungle for your enjoyment.
If you want to swim in the river, swimming holes along the river abound and are a few steps away from your lodge.
