I visited the Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge on a tour by a local guide and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The ride on the little train into the refuge was very pleasant. During the motor boat part of the tour, the guide pointed out a wide variety of wildlife, including boat-billed herons, an agami heron, kingfishers, cormorants, little blue herons, oropendolas, bats, a tamandua, and howler monkeys. Later on, via kayak, we spotted additional bird species and white-faced capuchins. If one is spending time near La Ceiba, it is a must to visit this wildlife refuge.

Great area. We saw monkeys, 2 crocodiles and many birds. But the trains goes trough a rather poor area. We did with a Tourist Options tour for 51 $ per person (entrance and train tickets including) and it felt totally safe and we could enjoy it fully. Ask them to leave at 6:30am to catch the 7am train as you'll see much more animals this way. As always in Honduras we were the only people there around. Just the train is worth it, but seeing the animals and going through the lagunes was great. The beach, nobody there, is just 5min away. So if you need to wait for the train, then you can go for a swim.

As part of our birding package with the Pico Bonito Lodge, we were taken there by guide Elmer Escoto. Awesome experience. We were able to get up close and personal with Boat-billed Herons, a juvenile Agami Heron, Sungrebes, crocodiles, and much more. The 9km ride to the refuge on the 1912 train is a hoot. Can't wait to go back.

It is a great natural reserve located just a few minutes from the community of LA Union (about 10 minutes from La Ceiba). The place is great for a relax boat ride; it is a prime location for Birding, you can see Boat-bill Heron, Wood Storks, and other 150+ species Keep in mind you have to take a small little train - no cars are allowed - so get to the departure place before 7am to take 7am ride so you get there earlier in morning if you are there for birding last train leaves at 2:40pm - there is a home where you can have lunch

From the entrance to the Cuero y Salado wildlife refuge you will see it is a different and original site. A funky, old banana railroad will take you through a 30 minute ride into the heart of the refuge. once there, you can choose between a boat ride or a canoe to paddle through the estuary and mangrove canals. Enjoy the howler and capuchin monkeys, as well as scores of resident and migrating birds in the area. They even have a basic hostel like facility to spend the night. This will give you a better chance to see the elusive manatees that live in the refuge! Definitively a must visit attraction in La Ceiba.
