La Ceiba is the capital of Atlantida, which is the gateway to the Bay Islands. Our programs are located in the town of La Ceiba which is a typically coastal town with a mix of Latin, Caribbean and Afro-Antillean culture. The economy thrives on tourism as well as local plantations of pineapple and palms and bananas. La Ceiba offers a lot to a traveler. With its close proximity to Pico Bonito Natural Park, marine reserves and wildlife refuge, it has the potential to develop into a major ecotourism spot in Central America. La Ceiba is famous for its Carnival week, which takes place during the Month of May to celebrate the patron saint, San Isidro. This is without doubt the largest and most important celebration held regularly in Central America.

PROACTIVE Jump in and maintain a positive attitude. PATIENT Life in your host country moves slower than one might be used to. Relax and enjoy the slow pace. Remember, not everything is as organized and predictable as life in the US or UK. FLEXIBLE Plans change, roads get flooded, and electricity goes out. Realize that not everything goes as planned, but good intention is always there. CONSIDERATE Respect those around you and be a reliable worker at the program site. Tell your host family if you will be late. Advise the Project Coordinator if you are sick and can not work. RESPECTFUL Remember that the local people you are working with, side by side, do so with little or no salary. They do this work because they believe in it. There are times when you may not agree with or understand the organizations decisions or direction. Although your suggestions are always welcome, your faith, respect and consideration for their long term work and commitment is appreciated. FRIENDLY In order to truly help someone you must get to know them. Do not be afraid to make friends with the local people. Smile, wave and see how fast you are welcomed into the community. TOLERANT The food, the culture, the smells and the sounds will be unfamiliar to you at first. We recommend that you dive in and experience life head-on. You will be surprised at how quickly you will adapt.
