In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Culturally diversified and the general attitude is "live and let live" Mixed races co-exist here with very little racial tension.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Jobs are available in the entertainment sector and for any type of skilled labor, especially in the housing industry, like, plumbers, electricians, drywallers, carpenters, etc. Labor is the cheapest commodity in Honduras but sufficiently lacks in Quality. Clothes manufacturing and other similar industries exist here for many of the same reasons that they exist in China with abundant natural resources and a inexpensive labor force.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

La Ceiba is probably best known as the party and vacation town for mainland Honduras and also has many festivals and events that attract party goers from all over the Caribbean. Additionally it is the largest city on the mainland coast and is the gateway to many of the attractions that Honduras has to offer for both tourists and new residents alike, and is the only mainland city with daily ferry service to the Bay Islands and regional shopping for this region of the country.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

This is a city in a third world country, don't consider moving here until you can accept the many differences in lifestyle from a developed country like the US. Many of the everyday services that you have don't exist here. The pace is much slower, service in many businesses is poor or non-existent and you will only increase your own blood pressure trying to demand better service. Utilities that you expect to receive are sometimes non-existent or of poor quality, so make sure if you rent or buy that these are already in place, promises to install them in most cases will only lead to your frustration. You can live very well here on much less than you can imagine, and this is an ideal location for retirees on limited budgets and its relatively easy to obtain a resident Visa. Explore the area and have or learn basic conversational Spanish before making a final decision to live here.
