Trujillo, our 2nd stop in Honduras, has only recently been welcoming cruise ships. We are here on the “Mosquito Coast” – named for the Miskito People.

We walked from the tender pier to the small town. Ships have come a long way since Columbus landed here in 1502!

The port gate – the bay here is a good two miles long! No wonder it attracted Spain.

The town sits on a bluff between the mountains and the sea. Here is the Cathedral San Juan Bautista.
