I might be a bit biased about this place. Tela is where I think that I became irreversibly afflicted with the travel bug. I was 14 and it was my first time traveling without my family.

The town wasn't lively but the beaches were gorgeous and the trip to the village was so much fun and really expanded my horizons.
