La Ceiba is the third most important city in Honduras and it shines like never before. The emblematic San Isidro Avenue is a testament to its hoped-for carousel, where the exuberance and beauty of the Honduran woman is the main component.
La Ceiba gives its biggest party of the year, known throughout the country. The program includes a parade, music and dances.
This festival is inherited from the one dedicated to San Isidro Labrador, patron saint of the farmers. The feria of San Isidro, particularly popular within the Garifuna community, has become a local institution. It was even declared, in 1886, the annual festival of La Ceiba.
The celebration is officially scheduled on the 3rd or 4th Saturday of May, but usually the dates of the festivities begin a few days before and continue until a few weeks after.
