Cabanas Toucan is one of the first "eco-hotel" in Honduras. It is located in the savage life refuge of Punta Izopo and has its own beach : it is a natural paradise where the visitor cohabits with animals, the carribean sea, and nature. We have 8 cabins with private bath, kitchen and parking.
We booked a whole one-week tour at this place in March/April 2008, mainly as a result of the 'excellent' marketing on the related (same owner) Coco-Tours website, Honduras.
Unfortunately we had to chancel our stay after only one night, after encountering numerous problems (without ever getting reimbursed for that). The place doesn't live up to the expectations raised on the website at all - in fact, the descriptions are totally misleading. To name but a few problems: the place is not secluded or situated in a park as you are lead to believe (but in the midst of other settlements and villages), neither is there a private beach (rather a public one, that people also ride there cars on), there were no other mosquito nets (the Hondurian north coast does have malaria cases, see health sections in travel guides for that), no aircon or fans, there were no other guests in the whole place, the only non-English-speaking employee had no idea we were coming, all of the 3 meals that were supposed to be part of the package had to be taken somewhere else, after getting picked up by car each time...
So, as much as we were looking forward to this stay, absolutely no stars for this place, sorry.
We don't mind super basic accommodations - but we do mind getting lured into a situation like that by false promises.
