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
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.
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.

Our family (2 adults, 3 children) just returned from a relaxing, but all too brief, visit to the newly- constructed Villas Pico Bonito, perched a stone throw above the muscular Rio Cangrejal. Adjacent to the national park, this splendid but environmentally unobtrusive resort sits amidst abundant wildlife with superb birding. And, for those in quest of an adventure, it is well situated, just a 5 minute walk to a water rafting outfit plus a 9-component jungle zip line. You can swim in the invigorating fast river or in the pool by the thatched restaurant/bar. The latter provides all meals, save breakfast, and the food is top-notch.Our fully equipped villa- with 5 varieties of jungle wood flooring- was delightfully decorated, spotless and, astonishingly, bug free. On the back porch, there is a magnificent view of an impressive waterfall atop the mountain. Not unexpectedly given the setting, there is no need for A/C and at night the river roar is a delightful sedative. Moreover, the lush grounds are rich in a diversity of flora, a particular interest of the owner and exemplary host, Richard Adamson. Speaking of whom, Richard resides there so he is readily available, a wellspring of information about all aspects of Honduras, such as the people, travel, government …etc. In our opinion, his extraordinary hospitality alone makes this resort a frontrunner over other vacation lodges in CA.The only trivial shortcoming, and assuredly this will be remedied, is a lack of on-site books and pamphlets on Honduras, especially those devoted to its inimitable biodiversity. Also, a sign-in travel journal or log for the quests wherein one could relate interesting experiences and recommendations would be helpful.This is a truly wonderful resort.
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.
Zip lining, rafting, casino, Copan Mayan ruins, night life in La Ceiba Zona Viva, Bay Islands, Utila, Roatan, Guanaja, Cayos Cochinos.
