La Ceiba is known for its nightlife, though standards rise and fall. Most clubs are open from Wednesday or Thursday through Saturday from the afternoon until the early morning, and covers are generally L100 to L200. Several new clubs, almost all side-by-side on 1 Calle in the Zona Viva, have upped the quality of La Ceiba's nightlife considerably. At last check, the places to be were at Le Pacha  (no phone), a large tented lounge and disco with beach frontage, as well as Hibou (tel. 504/2440-1700), a multi-part club on the beach at Avenidas Bonilla, with a full-on disco and raised dance floor, several bars, and DJs blasting the latest Top 40 reggaeton and rock tracks. La Palapa (tel. 504/2443-3844), behind the Quinta Real, is popular with visitors and upscale Hondurans who want to eat and drink with a group of friends but don't want to stand in a crowded disco. There's occasionally live music. On the other side of the Quinta Real are a few, somewhat seedier, bars on the beachfront such as El Guapo and Snake Bar.

There is a cluster of discos and grungy multi-level bars in the Zona Viva on Calle 1a, like Mango Tango (no phone), that can be good for a drink or two, though the crowd varies, depending on the night.
