La Mosquitia takes up nearly the entire eastern half of Honduras and remains undeveloped and sparsely populated. To get there requires a bi-plane which will only squeeze 20 people in at a push. And don’t look down when you come in to land – all you’ll see is a strip of grass in amongst the trees, likely with a few kids running around chasing a ball. This is no Heathrow.
From there you find yourself a captain with a cayuco; long, motorised dugout canoes which the locals use to get around. If you want to get further into the area then this is the only way around. No roads, no cars, no other options. Then it’s time to get comfy as the distances between riverside villages are pretty big. This is where the adventure starts to get rewarding though as you realise how far you are from civilisation. Technology goes out the window and you’re back to nature with a bang.
