The bay of TELA is one of the most popular destination of HONDURAS.


Surrounded by mountains and national parks, the beaches of the bay of TELA offers a splendid postcard landscape of the Caribbean Sea.
The bay is also characterized by its old banana activity and by the GARIFUNA ethnic group which bring most of the Hondurian culture.


It was in this bay that in 1524, the conquistador cristobal of OLID (sent by Christophe COLOMB), unloaded with the conquest of Honduras and baptized it TRIUNFO de la CRUZ.

TRIUNFO de la Cruz, is the largest GARIFUNA village of HONDURAS. The GARIFUNAS arrived in 1797 and have their own culture which constitutes the major cultural richness of the country, with their own dialect, gastronomy, voodoo rites, music and dances (punta and yancunu).
