Hotel & Eats
Craving for a short adventure of some sort? Head onto Angeli Gardens nearby 25 Calle just after the fork at 33 Calle. This is a restaurant with excellent views, which you can enjoy after a short hike. It sits on a lush garden at a mountain edge and is surrounded by a thick jungle. Try their local beer that has been brewed in-house at Cerveceria Del Bosque.
Don’t drive these roads at night. There are many animals along the road, and theft is common around La Entrada. Most of the roads are very good, and you can expect to maintain a comfortable speed. Nevertheless, remember you are sharing the roadway with children, livestock, carts, and parked vehicles.
The route via La Entrada and San Pedro Sula is visually stimulating, and the roads are in excellent condition. If you want to visit the coast or the Bay Islands, this is the route to take.
