This is tender port. A two-ship cruise dock and themed retail shopping village are under development at the heart of the colonial city, near the Santa Barbara Fort, cannons and charming cobblestone streets.
Arriving cruise passengers will be welcomed by local Garifuna performers, who play a unique Central American style of music, including Punta and dancers in colorful attire.
The banana boom, when millions were shipped from this region, is over; today's activity revolves around sun, sand and nature. Relax and unwind on an unspoiled beach or enjoy eco-adventures within the lush rainforest of nearby Campo Del Mar Nature Park. Trujillo, a colonial town visited by Christopher Columbus, is home to the local Garifuna culture.
Plenty of excursions are on offer: Snorkel Tours, ATV, Tram, Kayak etc.
There are all kinds of walking activities very close to the port, which is one of the highlights of Banana Coast.Trujillo was established in 1525, so it’s a really quaint Spanish colonial town. It’s less than a five-minute walk away from the terminal.
The 10-acre waterfront facility now has a beach and about 20,000 square feet of retail, including a jade museum and jewelry store, CocoLoco’s organic frozen coconuts, duty-free liquor and gift shop, and kiosks offering refreshments and souvenirs crafted by local artisans.
