Partial view of La Ceiba waterfront in the 1910s. The sender of this real photo postcard, possibly an American missionary, describes the white building behind the boat's mast as "our church" and the large building at the left as the barracks and prison.The wireless station and tower to the right of the water tower belonged to "an American banana company", most likely the company that became the Standard Fruit Co. and whose operations were headquartered in La Ceiba. Unknown, c. 1915 - Public Domain

La Ceiba (Spanish pronunciation: [la ˈseiβa]) is a port city on the northern coast of Honduras in Central America. It is located on the southern edge of the Caribbean, forming part of the south eastern boundary of the Gulf of Honduras. With an estimated population of over 200,000 living in approximately 170 residential areas[2] (called colonias or barrios), it is the fourth largest city in the country and the capital of the Honduran department of Atlántida. La Ceiba was officially founded on August 23, 1877.

La Ceiba is Connect Global's choice for our new initiative called, Connect Community. We have chosen this location because of its access to remote villages, as well as more well known locales, the relationships we have formed over the years, and the need for positive change.
