When is Carnival in La Ceiba?

¡Hola! Can anyone tell me when Carnival is this year? Is it in May?

To the best of my understanding the tour books say Carnaval is on the third Saturday of each May so this year it is May 19th but this isn't exactly true: Carnaval WEEK starts on the 19th; the following Friday night the 25th is when the all night party takes place and the parade happens the next day Saturday the 26th. More than one hotel manager told me this.

Is that true? Funny,I'm right here at La Lima, Honduras, and can't get an aswer to that question. I just saw it posted that Carnaval was the 15th through the 21st.... But then again.....

Please let me know if any news comes up, and I'll also try to get OFFICIAL information.

Buckey's information appears to be correct. This is always the $24 question in La Ceiba to which no one has an authoritative ahead of time.

Up until a couple of months ago the La Ceiba tourist board folks were saying the big parade and party (the only thing anyone wants to see, or avoid, as the case may be) was going to be on the 19th. Now they have changed their tune and are saying the it will be on the 26th.

There is a new web site up for the Carnaval at http://www.carnavaldeceiba.com/index.htm which puts it at the 26th.

Stay through the two weekends and you are sure to catch it.
