|Visiting Cayos Cochinos is one of our favourite day trips. Cayos Cochinos, also known as The Hog Islands, are comprised of two small islands, Cayo Menor and Cayo Grande, and 13 tiny coral cays. There are no cars on the islands, making them a unique escape. Cayos Cochinos, with the assistance of the Smithsonian Institution, became a marine protected area in 1994. The islands are amazingly beautiful & prompted National geographic to write "The waters around this collection of coral cays are a marine biologist`s dream: protected by the government, off-limits to commercial divers and fishermen, and busy with creatures that may not yet have names." Chachauate, one of the larger of the cays, is a traditional Garifuna fishing village. Contact us to find out which days this trip is available during your vacation. We recommend you plan a trip to Cayos for early on in your visit, the trip dates can become flexible due to weather conditions.
