direct shuttle to la ceiba ferry (utila / roatan)

Trans-land shuttle service runs a direct shuttle bus between Antigua Guatemala and La Ceiba Honduras. In La Ceiba we drop you off at the ferry terminal so you can take a ferry to Utila or Roatan on the same day. The route runs three times a week, every Monday, Wedensday and Friday from Antigua at 2 am. We return from the ferry terminal in La Ceiba every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday after the ferry from Utila arrives. The Utila dream ferry arrives at the dock around 8 am.

This shuttle bus is direct, there are no stops (except for meal breaks) and you don’t have to change buses. We pass the Corinto border between Guatemala and Honduras. The total driving time is between 12 to 13 hours. Our shuttles are the newest model Toyota Hiace (high roof) minibuses with A/C and reclining seats.
