Tela, Honduras

Tela Diving AdZENture

Experience the Magic of Tela

You’re invited to immerse yourself in the magic of the town of Tela, Honduras. In addition to the unique and rich history, colorful culture, and welcoming locals, we invite you to explore the mesmerizing and pristine coral reef. Coral reefs in the Caribbean are suffering from disease and climate change. But this particular reef seems immune to disease while boasting exceptional health and beauty.


In order to let the world know about the rare reefs in Tela, conservationist, Antal Börcsök, and his wife, Alejandra Thompson have established a Marine Protected Area and built the only public aquarium in Central America, called TelaMarine. The aquarium is a hedge against harm to the reef: if people don’t know it’s there, they won’t protect it. The aquarium is also free to the public following a short video on the importance of coral reefs. In addition, Tela is home to Lancetilla Botanical Garden, established in 1925 and home to the most important botanical collection in Latin America. This trip will include diving on the exceptional reefs, as well as visits to both the aquarium and the gardens.


A portion of your retreat costs will go directly to preserve and protect this special place, the coral reef and its surroundings.

Our Enchanting Locations…

Our AdZENture offers two amazing accommodations during our week in Tela. We start the week off in a beautiful, tree house boutique hotel in the heart of Tela, minutes from the beach.  Then we will venture into the jungle and spend the last four nights at an extraordinary property in the Jeanette Kawas National Park on the West side of Tela bay. This area is a massive mangrove forest home to 800 species of birds. The hotel includes unique fruit trees, an organic farm, and hiking trails into the park.

Our Magical Mangrove Property

The mission of this property is the conservation, protection, and restoration of natural and cultural resources in the area.

From the initial conception of this unique property, the owners/visionaries designated approximately 50% of the land for a wildlife sanctuary. Since then a great variety of birds, olingo monkeys, iguanas, and many other types of wildlife have repopulated this wooded reserve.

In addition, they have planted approximately 2,000 ornamental plants, 350 fruit trees, 400 coconut trees, 350 cacao trees, 500 plantain, and 1,000 hardwood and lumber trees. Slowly, they are increasing the habitat for more wildlife and converting the once cow pasture and deforested land onto luscious green, shaded areas.

At this property they promote the coexistence of humans and nature. These unique and natural settings allow guests to experience wildlife, natural attractions, and indigenous culture with the minimum intrusion in their habitats.
