Off on an Adventure

We're going on a little overnight trip to Cayos Cochinos, a group of 2 small pristine islands and 13 smaller cays, a 45 minute boat ride from here. We'll be staying in Chachahuate, a Garifuna village on Lower Monitor Cay. Rather primitive conditions, I think. The World Wildlife Federation built some cabins and a kitchen for the Garifuna people to host visitors, othewise they survive by fishing. The snorkeling and diving are apparently quite spectacular there. The whole area is a Marine Biological Reserve.

Back tomorrow!
