Taking the Bus in Honduras to help get to and from Utila is an affordable, safe way to travel. There are 2 main options for bus types that you’ll want to look at- the local directo and the nice private busses, such as Hedman Alas and Viana Bus lines.

June 2012: We just updated all our Honduras bus information at http://utilaguide.com/utilatravel/bus/, so you can find everything you need there!

  1. I am a regular reader of your blog posts. I liked the recent one and other posts on your blog so much that I have subscribed to the blog’s RSS feed in Thunderbird. Even thinking of stealing some ideas and put them to work. Keep all the good work going by posting more informative posts. Thank you. Time well spent on this post.

    Why don’t you mention the Viana bus line here? Why only Hedman Alas? I took Viana from Tegucigalpa to LaCeiba and found it very enjoyable.

    Thanks for the note. Not intentionally omitted- I’m just one little webmaster trying to help folks out on a volunteer basis….. I actually just did a search for Vianna and you can find them here: http://www.vianatransportes.com. Bus leaves from SAP to La Cieba 7am, 10:30, 1:45, 6pm and goes from La Ceiba to SAP 6:30am, 10:30, 12:30, 3pm. I’ll give them a try next time I travel and will include them in the next update of this page. Cheers

    my trip from ceiba san pedro airport with hedman alas march 15 2012 was horrible they tore my luggage and stole my glasses $250 the bus broke down five minutes from the S.P. terminal en route to the airport and it took them over an hour to send another bus.customer service horrible and they charge triple the other buses,i assumed the service would be better, it is a thousand times worse.fhaylock@hotmail.com

    Hi Frank- Wow- sorry you had such a rough go with Hedman Alas. Have you written in to their customer service? I have found their email customer service to be very good. Thanks for the heads up for our readers. I’ve taken them lots of times and most times its been a very smooth ride…Are you of the Haylock stores in Ceiba?

    I am travelling to Utila on the 8th July, I an flying into San Pedro Sula then trying to make my way to Le Ceiba to be pick up. I’m guessing the easiest way is to get a bus/coach there….. Can you tell me if this is correct and what sort of price i would be looking at?????

  15. UtilaGuide says:

    You can catch a bus from the airport to La Ceiba, but check out the Bus page on our site- its a tight make….You may have to spend the night in La Ceiba. Hedman Alas bus from Airport to La Ceiba about $20 usd and inexpensive hotel in Ceiba about $20 usd. I’m going to write our friends at Hedman Alas and see if they have any updates on the transfers from the airport. Most people do fly (Mon, Wed, Fri, 2:30pm- that is from SAP to Utila. Its about $120 usd, but saves a day/night of travel..)
