Trujillo Hotels: 2 reviews and 10 photos
So you want to get away from it all – really getaway, but you don’t want to rough it, then consider Casa 17 between Trujillo and Santa Fe, Honduras. Situated high on a hill surrounded by the tropical rainforest and overlooking beautiful Trujillo Bay the luxurious three-bedroom house in a gated community has everything you need. All the appliances including a dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer are brand new as is the beautiful house. The kitchen is fully furnished. All linens are supplies. The expansive porch is perfect for dining, bird watching, lazing in the hammock, or watching the sunset. You will have your own private pool with a view of the rainforest and bay. Bring your own food if you want to prepare your own meals (tip: stop at MetroPlaza in La Ceiba or Tocoa for grocery shopping) or you can venture down the hill to enjoy dining at Tranquility Bay, Campomento, or Banana Beach. Casa 17 is perfect for two but can comfortably accommodate eight people. At only $450++ per week it is an amazing value.
Other than enjoying the peace and quiet that is so hard to attain in this busy world there are other things to do including visiting the historic fort, zip lining, bathing at the hot springs, exploring Guaimoreto Lagoon, checking out a bizarre museum of “stuff,” fishing, visiting Cayos Cochinos, paddle boarding, kayaking, and sail boarding. But the best part is doing nothing but reading, resting, bird watching from the porch, and enjoying a refreshing dip in the pool. Guests enjoy free access to a lovely sandy beach for a refreshing dip in the Caribbean.
What doesn’t Casa 17 have? There is no television (ah, what a blessing) but internet access is available and, a special benefit, because of its location on the hillside above the beach there are no dreaded Honduran sand flies! For more information and images check naturalhonduras.com.
