The colonial center of Trujillo is built on a hill beside the town's fort, high up from the bay and surrounded by green mountains. A few roads lead down to the beach below the center, where there is a string of seafood shacks and the Garífuna neighborhood of Cristales. A single dirt road runs west along the coastline to the Garífuna communities of Santa Fe and Guadalupe. The airport, 1km (1/2 mile) away from Trujillo's center, is on the eastbound road outside of town. Puerto Castillo, Trujillo's deepwater port, is 8km (5 miles) east across the bay.
