About Richard

Built Villas Pico Bonito on the best piece of property on the River Cangrejal near La Ceiba Honduras. Originally built as a retirement home it is now available for the rest of the world to enjoy my hidden paradise in the biggest National Park in Honduras. The huge pool was a difficult project but it turned out to be the best infinity pool in La Ceiba! Wonderful views of the river and cloud forest with its waterfall, El Bejuco. Built a small grill and bar area, just for fun so you can eat and drink there if you wish. The river changes depending on rain fall. In my photo you can see it in full flood. An awesome sight!

Richard purchased this villa in 2008

Why Richard chose La Ceiba

The Lodge is absolutely gorgeous and has a stunning view of the River, the Jungle and the cloud forest. I located it here because it is close to the city but far enough away to be in another world. You can sit on the balcony and watch the rafters come down the river. Any minute the variety of birds change. You can see Mot Mots digging their nests in the bank of the stream that runs through the property or see the Oropendolas build their hanging nests in the trees. Just so many beautiful things surround you here in our little romantic paradise.

What makes this villa unique

We are just minutes from many hiking trails, white water rafting and zip lines in the Pico Bonito National Park. The Park is home to many different animals and exotic birds and is accessible by bridge just a short walk from the resort.

Walk along paths surrounded by heliconias, gingers, hibiscus, bourgainvillia and many other beautiful native plants and trees. Rest on the many seats placed specifically for birding.

Sun and swim in the river or relax around the most beautiful infinity pool in all of Honduras. Visit our Hidden Paradise Bar and Grill for good wholesome grilled foods and drinks.

We have wireless internet, a Beach Volley Ball Court, Badminton, Horseshoes etc. for your entertainment.

Let us pamper you with our full concierge service which includes arranging tours to all the wonderful eco destinations close by. We welcome you to our Hidden Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I were the first guests to stay in the Del Rio room in February

2009. The owner, Richard, has done an amazing job of designing and getting

a local crew of workers to build this place. It is in a wonderful setting next to

the Rio Cangrajal with lush vegetation and a variety of birds. The views are

great and the sound of the river was very relaxing for us. Although

construction of other units was happening during our stay, it was never a

bother for us. We especially liked the location as we took the opportunity to

hike in the adjacent national park. Our only dislike would be the road to the

Villas (7 km of bumps) but we understand that it also probably limited the

number of people travelling up and down the road.

Our room was perfect for what we were looking for in a self contained condo,

comfortable bed, nice shower, decent kitchen and the screened porch was a

bonus. Richard has equipped each unit with top of the line materials, fixtures,

furniture and appliances.

The restuarant/bar were fine although perhaps lacking in food selection,

some local or native dishes would be appreciated. Make sure you say hello to

Lyle in the bar as he pours a great drink and is a wealth of information about

most places on Central America.

We would highly recommend Villas Pico Benito if you are looking for quiet

place to hang out for a few days and experience rural Honduras.

Eight family members just returned from a trip to

Honduras. We stayed two nights at Villa Pico

Bonito. Had we known how beautiful the area was,

we would've stayed much longer. Richard is a

wonderful host. He has done a great job with the

property, and he is extremely helpful and

accommodating. We went zip lining, white water

rafting and hiking. The pool is fabulous. The house

was very comfortable and included all the

necessary amenities. I recommend that you

purchase your groceries in La Ceiba prior to your

arrival. It'll save you a trip back to town. Our stay

was much too short. We hope to be back there.
