  • A gem of pearls in Honduras. Cayos Cochinos is an island group that is not adapted for tourism. However, there are a few places where one can stay overnight, otherwise there are several organizations that offer day trips to visit the islands. I recommend both options! Visit the various islands by boat, amazing snorkeling where I've seen more and bigger fish than at most dives. You can expect to barely see a single tourist. Instead, look for the participants in Survivor Survival program! Cayos is really spectacularly beautiful. Count on very simple conditions. Visit to Garifunasamhället is oxå to recommend, where you can eat a good fried fish!
