For International Travelers Entering Honduras
Visa & Passport Requirements: All foreign visitors must have a valid passport to enter the country with at least six months remaining validity.
Customs: To enter Honduras, you must present a U.S. passport with at least six months remaining validity. U.S. citizens do not require a visa for tourism, but you must provide evidence of return or onward travel. For other nationalities, it is your responsibility to ensure your own visa requirements, and no refunds will be awarded for customers denied access for lack of a proper visa.
You may bring items that are for your personal use without paying import duties assuming the items are appropriate for your trip. The items may not be for commercial use such as goods for resale. Scuba divers should not bring spear guns. They are prohibited on the Bay Islands and will be held at the airport until you leave the country.
For your convenience, there are (4) international airports in the following cities of entry: La Ceiba, Roatan, San Pedro Sula, and Tegucigalpa.
Arriving in Guanaja
There are two options to choose from when getting to Guanaja: air and sea. By air, both Aero Caribe Airlines and Lanhsa offer regular flights from La Ceiba to Guanaja. As a general rule, there are very limited connections from San Pedro Sula or Tegucigalpa to Guanaja, so we recommend you make all your air travel plans to Guanaja from Goloson International airport in La Ceiba. Lanhsa Airlines also has weekly flights from Roatan to Guanaja. Make sure you book in advance as the service is provided in a small aircraft and seats are limited!
By sea, and because of its easternmost location, the Port of La Ceiba is not used as a hub to travel to Guanaja. Trujillo, located one hundred miles east of La Ceiba has become the mainland port from where to travel from the mainland to Guanaja by sea. The Pearl Princess is operating the Trujillo to Guanaja route three times a week, on Monday, Friday and Sunday, departing Guanaja bound for Trujillo at 7:00 a.m. and Trujillo to Guanaja at 2:00 p.m. Departures from Guanaja and Trujillo are from the municipal dock facilities in each city.
The Island Pearl is also running a Roatan to Guanaja route twice a week, on Wednesday and Saturdays, departing Guanaja at 7:00 a.m. and from Oakridge, in Roatan at 2:00 p.m.
