Our vacations in Honduras

About 15 km out in the Carribean Sea are the Cayos Cochino (Hog Islands), a cluster of small islands which are part of the second largest reef in the world. This is a paradise for divers and snorklers alike. Some of the islands are still inhabited by the Garifuna people, one of the aboriginals of Honduras who today make a living from fishing and tourists. [Map]
[] Only the brave are daring
enough to take the rough ride
in a speedboat to the islands

We are approaching a tiny deserted island where the snorkeling fans spend the next hours exploring the underwater scenery

In the distance is one of the larger inhabited islands
The village of the Garifuna people,
living like centuries ago
This precarious outhouse
served us well after
a good meal

The beach and surf is shared by us and the local kids
A happy girl after the successful sale of a necklace

After the swim in the surf we enjoy the local seafood and the deserved beer in the local pub
