Coast and Lagoons - La Moskitia (3 days)
Bush hopper planes and dugout canoes. Lagoons & empty caribbean beach. A short trip to La Moskitia.
Early morning we take a bush hopper plane to Palacios. A tuc-tuc brings us to Raista, on a sand bank between Ibans Lagoon and caribbean sea. We stay at Dona Cecilias guesthouse, very basic -just like all Miskito "hotels"- and really friendly. In the afternoon we find time to take a walk along the empty beach, watch the fishermen and go for a swim.
After breakfast we jump in a Pipante (motorized dugout canoe). Crossing Ibans Lagoon, a beautiful mangrove channel that leads to the Platano river. On the other side of Rio Platano there is another
extraordinary channel system connecting to Brus Lagoon.
Crossing it all we arrive in the old pirates village of Brus Lagoon. It still has its charm out of these days! Another night in a very simple hospedaje.
After breakfast we find time to do a walk around town. Depending on the flight schedule we leave between 8 and 11 a.m., back to La Ceiba.
