Trip Details: This team will stay at the Villa Telamar Hotel. It is where the executives of the Chiquita Banana Company used to stay when that company was headquartered in Tela.

Team members will share a room with other team members and families will be placed together. There are private bathrooms in each room with showers. Towels and sheets will be provided, although it is always a good idea to bring washcloths. The hotel is literally located on the beach, so it will be warm. The hotel is air-conditioned.

The food will consist of beans, rice, and a lot of fruit, beef and chicken. On past trips to Honduras, the food has been very good and not exotic at all.

Vaccination Information: Wondering what immunizations you’ll need for the mission trip? Please refer to the Centers for Disease Control website.
