From the first time we visited Honduras and the area of La Ceiba we began looking for property to build a semi-retirement/vacation home on. We found the new development of El Rancho Lima a secure and gated community that is just 5 minutes from the main center of town. The abundance of fresh vegetables, fruit, seafood, coffee and numerous activities of the mountains and the sea cinched the deal. The wonderful mediate climate with flora, fauna and over 400 species of birds in the area adds to the beauty. The people are friendly, helpful and if you do not speak Spanish there is not a problem, with most of the country speaking English.
Being situated below Pico Bonito Mountains, Rain Forest and close proximity to the Caribbean Sea we get wonderful sea breezes off the water, sounds of numerous birds surround you, and you are enclosed in a beautiful landscaped yard with 35' of pool that is total Bliss. The close proximity of every activity possible is within minutes making it possible to explore beyond the shore!
