Ceiba — photo, attractions, weather, what to see in La Ceiba on the map
The largest city in Honduras, named after the giant ceiba trees — La Ceiba attracts tourists from all over the world — and what exactly? Now let’s figure it out.

Firstly, the carnival in La Ceiba is a local carnival held annually on the third or fourth Saturday of May in honor of San Isidro Labrador (Isidore the worker) — the second most important after the carnival in Rio de Janeiro, and thousands of tourists ( about half a million, to be exact) come here to join this amazing action. Secondly, La Ceiba is considered the gateway to the routes to the Cordillera Nombre de Dios and the Pico Bonito National Park. Thirdly, from here you can sail to the islands of the Gulf of Honduras. Fourthly, there are excellent beaches and vibrant nightlife, and fifthly … Well, first things first.

The city of La Ceiba is located on the shores of the Gulf of Honduras (more precisely, on its eastern border), around the mouth of the Cangrejal River. The name of the city, founded in 1877, was given by the giant ceiba trees that grew next to the old docks and recently died — they fell into the sea at the end of 2007. La Ceiba is officially the Entertainment Capital of Honduras and the Ecotourism Capital of Honduras. The economy of La Ceiba is based on the cultivation of bananas, the export of pineapples, tourism (as already understood), as well as the forestry and food and leather industries.

It is hot and humid in La Ceiba: precipitation falls regularly throughout the year (La Ceiba is considered one of the wettest cities in Central America — second only to Panama Colon), the temperature even in December rarely drops below 24 degrees Celsius, and in July-August it can be much higher than 30 degrees Celsius.

People go to La Ceiba primarily because of the many natural attractions located both in the city itself and around it. This is the Pico Bonito National Park, which is located on the Nombre de Dios mountain range — here you can delve into the real jungle, as well as rafting along mountain rivers with rapids and many waterfalls; in addition, the largest butterfly nursery in Central America has been established in the forests of the reserve. A few kilometers west of the city are the Cuero and Salado Wildlife Sanctuaries, home to wild manatees. There are also excellent opportunities for rafting on the Kangrehal River. From the city port, you can take a ferry to the islands of Utila and Roatan, where not only excellent diving (for example, a glass grotto, the opportunity to meet a whale shark and a hawk turtle), but also a rich cultural life: Utila hosts a major electronic music festival Sunjam, and Roatan is home to the Institute of Marine Sciences.

In addition to natural attractions, there are also cultural attractions in La Ceiba: this, of course, is a week-long carnival, during which the streets of the city are flooded with street musicians, performers, parties, small processions, and all this is crowned by a huge parade passing along the main street of the city.

Ceiba (tree): photo, description, where it grows

This plant is one of the most famous due to its vitality and beauty. It has become widespread on many continents, in many sunny warm countries.

This article will present an amazing and unusual ceiba plant (tree). Where it grows and what it is, you can find out by reading a short story about it below.

It is also known under other names: cotton tree, sumauma, kapok, five-starred ceiba. It should be noted that the name of kapok is also given to its fiber, which is found in the ripened fruit of this unique tree.

Ceiba tree: description

A total of 17 species of ceiba are known, naturally growing in tropical areas of West Africa and America. Of these, 2 species are most common in the world: magnificent ceiba and chorizia.

Ceiba is a type of baobab. The tree grows to a height of about 60-70 meters. Its trunk is very wide with well-developed buttresses. In its thickest lower part, large volumes of moisture are accumulated, which are consumed during dry seasons.

Leaves are palmately compound, consisting of 5-9 leaflets (length 20 cm). They are very similar to palm leaves. Mature trees produce up to several hundred large fruits (15 cm) — drop-down boxes with seeds. The walls of the boxes from the inside are covered with shiny fluffy silky hairs, reminiscent of cotton in structure. They are a mixture of cellulose and lignin. Harvesting, carried out by hand, is a rather laborious process.

Ceiba is a tree (see photo below) with a special feature. The trunk of the plant and branches are abundantly covered with prickly large thorns of a conical shape. There are also specimens of ceiba without thorns.


The plant is widely distributed in Brazil, Mexico, West Africa and Indo-China. Ceiba and La Ceiba are named after this sacred tree in Costa Rica and Honduras.

As the tree of life, it represents the official symbol of the State of Guatemala. Ceiba also grows in Israel, where it came not without human help. In this country there is one of the most beautiful species of this plant, the height of which is relatively small — it does not exceed 25 m. The lower part of an adult tree has a diameter of about 2 meters, and its growths and bulges contain reserves of the same water.

It is believed that the ceiba (tree) was first domesticated in Africa (western part). Then it spread to its eastern part and to Asia.

Beliefs and legends

This plant is sacred for many nations.

Ceiba is a tree considered a symbol of life among the Mayan peoples. It, according to the legend of the Indians, consists of the underground, middle and upper worlds. For them, this is the world tree, standing in the very center of the Earth. The gods sit on its upper branches, communicating and observing the life of people. If their mood is good and inviting, they may even seem to the eyes of mere mortals.

This tree also represents the axis of the world. One ancient belief claims that the stem of the ceiba represents the world of people, and the roots are the realm of the dead. The branches of the plant are the path of the souls of the dead to heaven.

And now people come to the tree of life like a temple to pray and share the most intimate, ask for mercy or just keep quiet. At the same time, you can’t even step on the sacred shadow of the ceiba, for this you need to ask him for permission.

Even today in small settlements the sacred ceiba (tree) is located in the very center, on the square. You can often see vast cut forests, but ceibs usually remain untouched, alone, and delight everyone with their amazingly beautiful lush blooms.

Ceiba blooms

Ceiba blooms in winter, and it is a delightful and unusual sight. This picture impresses and shocks with saturation and richness of color.

Ceiba is a tree whose flowers consist of 5 petals. Inflorescences are pinkish-red, white and purple. They appear on bare branches. In appearance and shape similar to hibiscus flowers. Their diameter is about 15 centimeters.

It should be noted that each flower opens for only one day and then falls off. Therefore, under a huge tree during its flowering, literally the entire space is covered with a beautiful bright and luxurious carpet of delicate petals.

Fruits of the ceiba tree

On the branches, after flowering, pear-shaped fruits (or in the form of avocados) are formed, which at the end of winter, after full ripening, crack, open and expose a large number of dark small seeds. The latter are equipped with white long fibers resembling cotton.

This pile (kapok) used to be always collected and then used to stuff the inside of mattresses, horse saddles and pillows.

These fibers are highly valued on the world market and are sold under the name burl silk. On one tree, from 600 to 4000 fruit boxes ripen per season.

Some interesting facts

The ceiba tree is unique. Interesting facts about him confirm this. In the tropical rainforests of America (the birthplace of ceiba), the plant grows to an impressive huge size (50-60 meters in height) in the form of a large wide umbrella, towering over nearby trees.

An interesting fact is that when the Spanish troops surrendered to the army of the United States of America in 1898, the event for the signing of the peace pact took place under a large ceiba tree. It then stood in the vicinity of the city of Santiago de Cuba. Since those most significant historical times, this tree has been called the World Tree.


Ceiba is a tree that is widely used in people’s lives. Kapok, which has good buoyancy and is lighter than cotton, can hold up to 30 times its own weight on the water.

More recently, until synthetics began to replace natural materials, kapok was widely used for filling upholstered furniture, seats in water transport and aircraft, soft toys, etc.

), kapok is indispensable in the production of vests and other life-saving equipment. Among other things, light warm jackets for polar explorers are also sewn from it. This plant makes excellent bonsai.

Due to its simple propagation by seeds, ceiba is also grown as an original ornamental plant for greenhouses and other large premises.

Since under natural growing conditions, ceiba flowers are pollinated not only by insects (butterflies and bees), but also by hummingbirds, and even bats, the flowers and leaves of the plant are used in medicines, as well as for the manufacture of cosmetics and creams. Flowers have excellent anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.

Ceiba wood is used by the Indians to build canoes, and the fibers from the trunks are used to make ropes. On the vast plantations of Asia (southeast), they grow it for the sake of wood, intended for the manufacture of beautiful veneer, plywood, and paper.

The bark of the plant also contains certain psychotropic substances. Native Indians prepare from it a special drink of Amazonian shamans (ayahuasca), used during rituals to enter a trance.
