Trujillo Bay From Calentura NP

The Beach!

It is possible just to spend your days walking along or laying on the beach.  The beach in front of Casa Kiwi is the middle of the bay and very calm and relaxing; often full of starfish and sand dollars.  At night, the bay in front of Casa Kiwi is filled with phosporescent plankton. There are the beaches all the way out past Santa Fe to enjoy as well.

Boat Trips / Guaimoreto Lagoon:

Boats to explore the Lagoon or fishing trips, etc.  The boat will pick you up and drop you off here; a round trip around the Lagoon and back takes 2 ½  - 3 hours. A nice trip is to go past the Garifuna villages of Santa Fe, San Antonio and Guadalupe and go out to the river on the Betulia point. Although talked about for years, there is no road all the way to Betulia and the only way to get there is by boat. Another option is togo to Guadalupe and ask around for a boat from there

Boat Trip In Guaymoreto Lagoon



There are wrecks towards Puerto Castilla that can be reached by boat and are good for snorkelling.  There is a large starfish colony near Casa Kiwi. A boat ride away is an almost unexplored small reef “Cayos Blanco” near Santa Fe.


The Bay of Trujillo is also a great place for windsurfing and Kite-surfing. The winds are favourable to start at Casa Kiwi

You need to go up early if you want to see any animals, as they come closer to feed in the mornings. That means at the latest a 6am departure from town.  Entrance to the park is free


Hiking In Capiro National Park


There are some cool, refreshing waterfalls/swimming holes a 30-minute walk from town, as well as several up on the hills of Capiro and Calentura

Garifuna Villages:

There are the villages of Santa Fe, San Antonio and Guadalupe if you want to have the full experience of the north coast.



A wild collection of things hoarded from around Trujillo over the years.  Just ask the people living next door to open up for you.  At the back, they have swimming pools fed directly from the river coming off the mountain and are surrounded  by bamboo and  trees.



For the history buffs, William Walker was executed in Trujillo after storming the fort and staging his attempt to govern Honduras from Trujillo. The cross you see in the photo marks the first mass in the Americas in Puerto Castilla where Christopher Columbus landed.
