Trujillo is one of the first cities founded by the Spaniards during the conquest, because thanks to the depth of the bay, it was perfect for the navigation of the great Spanish merchant ships. Punta Caxina, now called Punta Castilla, was where Admiral Colón arrived for the first time to Honduras, after discovering the island of Guanaja. This marks the beginning of the conquest, but above all, the beginning of Trujillo’s history.

Trujillo is a place rich in history of pirates, conquests, corsairs, banana companies, with a pre-Columbian past that makes this destination a unique attraction. Its historic center is made up of the beautiful buildings of the San Juan Bautista Cathedral, the Santa Bárbara Fortress, the old cemetery, and other important buildings. We cannot leave out its delicious cuisine, where you can taste tabletas and coconut bread, kazabe, and the traditional gifitti, a Garífuna drink.

The Capiro and Calentura National Park, the Laguna de Guaimoreto, the beaches of Campamento and Santa Fe, are all part of the natural beauty found in this area. To continue adding to the natural attraction of the destination, we must mention the famous “Banco de Estrellas de Trujillo,” where you can find about 30 types of starfish in one place. Cayo Blanco is the most recent discovery, a unique coral bank located on the coast of the department of Colón.

The Capiro and Calentura National Park, part of the Honduran Protected Areas System, represents an important refuge for wildlife, having among its most representative exponents the macaws and the most significant species of Honduran primates known locally as “micos.” The largest population of the capuchin or white face monkey is among those that stand out.
