Garífuna Village Oriented Toward Tourists

Sambo Creek is nine miles east of La Ceiba, and actually is a better place to stay because it is much smaller. This is the largest true Garífuna village in Honduras (according to Wikipedia), and yet it caters very well to tourists wanting to hire an open boat destine to Cayos Cochinos, or possibly even to Roatan. We enjoyed good seafood, walked the beach, talked with residents, and hung around the best hotel in our Honduras trip, in addition to hiring a boatman to ferry us out the Cayos Cochinos for snorkeling.
