La Ceiba is home to the ferries that run to the famous Utila and Roatan Islands on the northern coast of Honduras. The ferries run twice daily each way to the islands and the dock is around a fifteen-minute drive from the town center. Most people only stop by La Ceiba on their way through to one of the islands, as the public transport to get to the islands from outside of Honduras can be quite lengthy and it is rare to manage getting to the ferry on time in one day from the Guatemalan border.
Hostels in La Ceiba are scattered in location, so do your research into where you want to stay before you get there, especially if you are traveling on public transport and arriving after dark. It is not advised to walk around at night after dark on your own, so take a taxi to your La Ceiba hostel. Your friendly La Ceiba hostel staff should be able to give you information on where the closest amenities are and anything else that you may need during your time here. Given that the town itself is quite large, you should find everything you need here.
There are multiple tours that run out of La Ceiba if you are interested in hanging around for several days. There are rafting, hiking, and canopy tours. Your La Ceiba hostel staff should be able to help you get on one of these tours of the amazing natural attractions in the local area.

La Ceiba doesn't have much going for it -- if you're on your way to or from Copan you will be much better off staying in Santa Ana, about forty-five minutes West of La Ceiba. It's got hiking trails, waterfalls, nice people, cool fruit trees, and good food. In the city of La Ceiba there's almost nothing, though a fair number of musty hotels and a couple semi-nice ones -- all more expensive though. The city is noisy, with a lot of air pollution, but is very definitely a Honduran city (not touristy at all).
