Trujillo (Honduras) cruise port

Trujillo was historically popular for its cattle industry. Most of the raised here cattle was not exported but retained for use by Hondurans.

The location was discovered by Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) in 1502, during his final voyage to the Americas. He named it "Punta de Caxinas". Noticing that the surrounding waters were very deep, he named the area Golfo de Honduras (Gulf of the Depths). In 1860, the mercenary William Walker (1824-1860) was caught and executed in Trujillo. His tomb is a tourist attraction.
