"Hog Islands" of Honduras
"Scuba Diving in Honduras as well as snorkeling, hiking and bird watching are but a few of the options available to the nature lovers who visit the Hog Islands and their keys known as "Cayos Cochinos". The Garifuna inhabit the surrounding area and cultural activities can be enjoyed such as dancing, fishing, local art and food. Each Hog Island is a true paradise that fortunately is being preserved for future generations to enjoy."
For good reason. During the days we were there, we saw teeming schools of electric-colored fish, sea turtles, squid, barracuda, kingfish, and lobster. It was as if we were dumped into an aquarium.
Cayos Cochinos is clearly the island for the most pristine Honduras Diving with some outstanding open water experiences to enhance your Honduras Travel. Cayos Cohinos Divng Resorts are very cozy and offer magnificent sunsets.

Controversial at the time, the designation of ocean areas around the island has proven to be boon to the local economy and to marine life.
We had planned to sail about 5 hours to Cayos Cochinos, which is a Honduran nature reserve. It is a chain of 12-13 cays. We planned to spend Friday night in Cayos Cochinos and then go onto Guanaja.
