Starting as hut under a Ceiba tree along the coast with a small dock in 1872, La Ceiba quickly grew into a major port. The city grew because of the fruit trade and commerce into a large economic center for the country. The early growth of La Ceiba was because of the Standard Fruit Company, which was part Dole Fruit. This is mainly because of the pineapple and banana trade.
The city has now grown to about 170,000 people divided into 170 barrios. One of the main parts of the economy now is tourism and is considered the capital of Honduras's emerging eco-tourism industry. The coastline is home to amazing beaches that are great for relaxing while enjoying some delicious fruit.
There are 170 Barrios in the city.
