Cruises to Trujillo via The Norwegian Jewel anchored 3 miles away from the beach.
I just found out there are now cruises to Trujillo, Honduras. So, here I come once again to my beautiful country
but this time I will arrive to this beautiful and historic town via the "Jewel", a Norwegian
cruise ship. Once I get there, I will be meeting some family members
including my mother, sisters, brothers, aunts, cousins, and hopefully a few
friends. My family, who live in Tocoa, about 31 miles from Trujillo, will
arrive there the same morning.
The plan is to visit with my family on the beach
and have a picnic with delicious food, drinks, and music. It is too bad we will
be together about 8 hours but it is better than nothing as my original plan was
to visit my country 5 years from now. Visiting with my family is the most
exciting part of this trip to me because I have not seen them in 5 years.
April is one of the hottest months in Honduras and I hope the weather is just perfect for this important and memorable reunion. My feeling is that it is going to be hot but I could be wrong.

The original plan was to go to Roatan, The Bay Islands, and have my mother with a few family members meet me there but when I spoke with my sister on the phone she said it was best if I went to Trujillo instead. I did not know one of the ports of call was Trujillo and when I found this out, I did not hesitate to do some research and book my trip.
According to history, when Christopher Columbus first set foot in the Americas, it was in Trujillo and this means this beautiful town plays a big part in the history of our country. Trujillo was founded in 1524, was the very first capital of Honduras and it was one of the most important ports back in the 1920s and early 1930's due to large production of bananas.
Trujillo has a lot more history which I will be adding in this section as time allows. I will also be adding pictures so stay tuned. There is another section on this website called Trujillo Honduras and there are already a few pictures there. But of course, Trujillo has changed a lot since the last time I was there.
