Looking to purchase land in Trujillo please help!

Hi, I am a Canadian looking to purchase some land in Trujillo as I have heard lots of stuff and have been reading about the Banana coast terminal.

How has everything been developing since the cruises started docking? I know it opened in 2014 but what has it been like on the ground since its opening?

What price range am I looking at for an acre of land in the hills with ocean views?
Also taxes etc what am I looking at annually?

Sorry for all the questions please if anyone can help please post and let me know!


I can't help you with Trujillo as I am out of La Ceiba.

Basic home construction runs $45.00 USD per square foot around La Ceiba.
Here's what some land prices look like right now in La Ceiba:

Residential direct beachfront lot  $35K - $55K
Ocean view $20K -$35K
Lagoon $20K - $30K
Oversized ocean view $35K - $50K

Hello Mike,

    Usually they sell lots below the half an acre for 45k, the real estate taxes are a joke, about 150 dollars per lot, if not less, HOA are about 80 per month. See different options as well google "Trujillo Honduras Real Estate" and see the options.

         Best Regards

I own a 2/3 acre lot in Trujillo Beach Echo Resort which I am interested in isobar tow off the Caribbean Sea in a new resort currently under development.

What about the developers in Trujillo Eco Resort. Can´t they help you to sell your lot?  You are looking for a place west of Trujillo, right? by Guadalupe or Santa Fe I guess!!

No, I'm not looking to buy anything....I already bought a villa near La Ceiba....I just want to sell my lot in TBED...thanks, though.

Are you looking to move or just visit after you buy a property. I own a lot and it's for sale and my friend has a 1 bedroom Cottage for sale in The Trujillo Beach Resort. It's a gated community.
It will take time for Trujillo to develop. Give them 5 years for the sea port to help the town. They are talking about a small airport also in the works. This is the gated community outside Trujillo.

Trujillo already has an airport

Mike, did you find a property in Trujillo yet? My 2/3 of an acre front row lot is still available for sale. It is in the Trujillo Beach Echo Developnent resort. We are currently on Honduras...

There are a great many properties for sale in Trujillo, Honduras and Canadians across the country can benefit from the region’s low pricing and immaculate coastal homes. A great benefit of buying local homes is that there are many types of property available. Whether you’re looking for a small family property or a waterfront villa, there are many purchase opportunities for Canadians in the Trujillo marketplace. Speak with a professional at a local real estate firm such as NJOI Trujillo before making the move.

Hi Mike

I bought a villa in the Trujillo beach area
Fully furnished , pool , beachfront

I be never been there and probably never will be.   Asking exactly what I paid and throwing in all the furniture

69000 US

Gosh ... quite a bit of Canadians selling in Trujillo.

Between Canadians buying online/without seeing property and the Canadian $ being so low.....

La Ceiba is flourishing and has so throughout the years.

Again, La Ceiba has it all and right now. Hospitals, nightlife, markets, malls, casinos, Walmart, many many gas stations ... and more. 12 years ago I wasn’t ready to wait on Trujillo’s infrastructure never mind real life and living. Not much has changed. Gosh.

Most of the people want out of Trujillo. Most of the buyers were speculators looking for an easy sell three years later for twice the price and now they can´t sell it for half the price.

Trujillo has not developed as they were promised, no infrastructure like La Ceiba as Chris said and probably the main reason is that developments there mostly sold lots to speculators.  Rental occupancy rate in Trujillo is almost zero (too far, no infrastructure, no good property management, bad roads, etc) nada. In other words, not a good investment.  That´s why most home and lot owners want out.
