Apr 7, 2007 - Into Honduras..

We've bussed it all the way to the Carribean coast of Honduras after overnighting in the rather drab Capital city. Being Easter we decided to skip the more popular dive destination of the Bay Islands and head for a little known island that an Italian guy briefly mentioned a couple of weeks ago. Chachaguate, a Garifuna island is in the Cayos Cochinos (Hog Keys), a small group of little islands off the Carribean coast of Honduras. The Garifuna were a group of disparate slaves that were evicted from St. Vincent by the English and have since...

Sep 16, 2004 - Utilla

OK, I'm in Utilla, a carribean Island off the north coast of Honduras. It's an incredibly friendly place and doesn't seem to have the security problems that exist on the mainland. I just finished my first day of my Open Water diving. The first dive was just basic skills but then after we explored the reef a little. It's beautiful but no pictures of the reef I'm afraid.

Jun 15, 2004 - Cayos Cochinos

Photos to come This remote group of island is the picture perfect island, except for the one we stayed on. THere are no public transport here and for that matter no people, except or the cay we stayed on. After meeting Craig in La Ceiba, we caught a bus to a tiny village of native people Nuevo Armenia and hire a man with a boat to take us across the ocean to these islands. We were very concerned when we saw the boat- but a dugout canoe with barely an inch to spare on the smooth water. Fortunately that ws just they guy who got us to the...
