Sambo Creek, located 9 miles (15 kilometers) east of La Ceiba, is considered to be a traditional Garífuna village, situated on the north coast of Honduras at the Caribbean Sea. They have an annual fair every June. With the largest Garifuna population in Honduras, Sambo Creek is considered to be an authentic Garifuna town, with an Ethnic Mix of 85% Garifuna and 15% Mestizo.
If you like seafood then you'll like Sambo Creek, with good seafood restaurants often frequented by local Hondurans from La Ceiba. La Champa Kabasa, at the entrance to town, with a delicious seafood soup, and Sambo Creek Restaurant, just to the east on the beach, are two good examples.
Whether you come for the seafood, the laid-back Garifuna atmosphere, or to lay on the beach, you should come with us to Cayos Cochinos. Cayos Tours departs from Sambo Creek not only because we love the place but also because of the close proximity to Cayos Cochinos, which makes for a shorter boat ride.
