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 El Naranjo

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.

                                    Kimberly K.

                                    The owner does everything he can to answer all questions. The caretakers will accommodate to any needs that you might need if possible. The people are so beautiful. The views are stunning. Wish we could have stayed longer. Their is a gorgeous parrot. Turtles. A beautiful little pond of fish outside the house. A gorgeous pool. There is not enough words to describe how awesome the place is. This place will definitely be a place I would be coming back to once a year. It is a must have to stay at this property. You will not go wrong. Thank you for everything and all your help.

                                    Lidia A.

                                    My husband and I as well as another couple stayed here for 5 nights. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. The kitchen has the basic necessities for what you need for the stay. The owner Richard was friendly and sociable with his guests, which we really enjoyed. The bartender, Kevin, was so much fun. The restaurant had great food at reasonable prices. The view topped it off for us with the waterfall and river. We would recommend the villa and the resort. Richard and his crew have done a wonderful job with all the stone work to make it fabulous.

                                    VRBORORG267351Grand Forks, ND

                                    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.

                                    Owner's Response:

                                    Thanks and please come back soon with your family.
