Construction Begins at Banana Coast Cruise Port

Construction has begun on the new Banana Coast cruise port on Honduras' Caribbean coast, shown in these artists' renderings.

Like similar self-contained resorts for cruise passengers, Banana Coast will offer twin berths for post-Panamax ships, a large sandy beach at the foot of the finger pier, a world-class shopping complex, and a transportation hub and marina for shore and water-based excursions. The difference is that Banana Coast is located at the western end of the Caribbean.

The facility is scheduled to be completed and open to cruise ships in late 2012.
