Two big cays and 11 small ones 20 miles NE of La Ceiba, a port in Honduras, on the Caribbean coast, under the name of Cayos Cochinos hide the beauty of turquoise pristine water, a bio marine research center, one kind of all inclusive hotel and the best of all: Cayo Chachahuate. A group of garifuna families live here and sometimes they offer very basic accommodation and food for tourists for a few dollars, if you pre-arrange with locals in La Ceiba and you are willing to spend a few days sharing 2 bathrooms with 100 people. Not easy to get there, but totally worth it.
An ecosystem with a coral reef in the North side of the cays, amazing sunsets, the most fantastic people with a totally different way of living. A one in a lifetime experience.
