“Where the Rainforest Meets the Sea” is the theme of the $30 million Banana Coast project here in Trujillo.
It was an exciting week for those of us who live and work in this part of the world. We have poured our hearts and souls into this jewel that has so captured our hearts. It appears the future is now.
President Porfirio Lobo Sosa was here and presided at the dedication ceremony for Banana Coast. It’s the first mainland cruise destination to be developed in Honduras and it’s open for business. He also recognized the founding of the city of Trujillo 488 years ago in 1525..
Here is an excerpt of what AllThingsCruise.com had to say:
The highlight of the event was the unveiling of a plaque honoring the previous landowners who made the port project possible.
“To have the first Caribbean mainland cruise port open in the place of my birth is very gratifying to me personally,” said Lobo. “I am honored to have played a role in the birth of an industry that will provide a future for the people of the region for years to come.”
“It is appropriate that the dedication of the new cruise port also celebrates the founding of Trujillo,” said Mayor Jose Antonio Lainez. “It symbolizes both the resilience of the citizens of Trujillo and the future potential of this historic city.”
“Without the cooperation of the many land owners and their families, this project would not have been possible,” said Randy Jorgensen, general manager of Grande Trujillo Authoridad. “This spirit has been taken up by the citizens of Trujillo, making Banana Coast a very welcoming destination for cruise ships.”
