Cayos Cochinos Eco Tour

Escape for a day to the beautiful Archipelago of Cayos Cochinos. In 1994, Honduras, with the help of the Smithsonian Institute, declared these islands a Marine Biological Reserve. In addition to the tropical forests and sandy beaches of ‘Cochino Grande’ and ‘Cochino Peque’ there are several small Keyes, one of which is Chachauate Key the home of a small Garifuna fishing village where the locals will fill you with delightful fish!

Cayos Grande is also the home to the ‘almost extinct’ Pink Boa which can often be spotted during Eco Hikes to the island’s light house. If you have enjoyed the waters of Utila you will go crazy for the waters of Cayos! The snorkeling is unparalleled with beautiful sea life, coral and sponges.

The tour begins at 7am and you will be returned by 5pm.

(Tour may be modified depending on weather conditions)
