Best Small Hotel: Tela In just a few short years, Maya Vista has become the place to stay in Tela. French Canadian hosts Pierre and Suzanne have created a hill top oasis right smack in the middle of downtown Tela. The inn boasts 6 clean, comfortable rooms and a very comfortable price. For the famished, Chef Suzanne cooks up some of the freshest and tastiest chow on the North Coast. The view from the restaurant is nothing short of spectacular. From the comfort of your plate of steaming shrimp and pasta, one can ponder the entire length of coast from Triunfo to Punta Sal, truly magnificent. For adrenaline junkies and afficionados of extreme experiences, hike the stairs to the towering Maya Vista lookout tower. From here one can gaze on the entire expanse of Tela Bay, the Lancetilla Botanical gardens and the entire town of Tela, sweating in it's decaying post banana republic stupor.

Pierre and his wife are wonderful hosts and the hotel restaurant offers excellent food. It is more like staying in a private house than a hotel. (Moon Handbook)

Pierre and Suzanne speak English, French and Spanish. They won't be surprised if your plan to stay one night turns into one week. (Best Inns of Central America)

One of the best views of the Bay of Tela from its high lookout point. First class service and atmosphere. (Honduras Tips)
