The Platano River Biosphere Reserve was established by the U.N. and the Honduras government to protect the outstanding cultural and natural resources of the Rio Platano valley. Here you still find virgin jungle and a large number of endangered species such as scarlet macaws, toucans, harpy eagles, jaguars and tapirs. Miskito and Pech Indians live along the river Platano growing yucca, bananas, corn and beans as well as hunting and fishing.

See the Platano River Biosphere where many of your fantasies will come true: exploring tropical rain-forest catching a glimpse of exotic wildlife and engaging in cross-cultural interchange with indigenous people.

Your Itinerary

Day 1: La Ceiba - Brus Laguna. According to flight changes we will take a jungle plane from La Ceiba to Brus Laguna. The little town is the meeting point of Misquito and Garifuna culture. A motorized dugout canoe will take us into the Laguna de Ibans From there we hike along the Caribbean beach and visit various villages of the Misquito Indians. We will have lunch in Raista where we stay the night with a Miskito family who once operated Honduras first butterfly farm.

Day 2: La Marias village. The following day we will descend the Rio Platano in a motorised dugout canoe until we reach the Indian village La Marias after a 6 hours boat ride. Walk around the village and get to know the friendly locals. Spend the warm tropical nights in a thatched roof hut and share the traditional meals with the local people. Overnight in Las Marias.

Day 3: Jungle tour. Discover the lush tropical jungle on a guided tour with an experienced local guide while listening to the roar of the howler monkeys. Or take a pipante (a narrow and long dugout) to go further up the river to see those mysterious signs carved into the rocks by unknown ancient authors. Archaeologists believe that the Petroglyphs give some clues about the lost "White City" yet not found in the jungle. Return late afternoon and overnight stay in Las Marias.

Day 4: Brus Laguna. We return by boat down the Rio Platano passing an overgrown mangrove channel when we enter Laguna de Ibans for lunch at Raista. Then we continue our canoe trip to Brus Laguna where we stay overnight.

Day 5: Transfer to the airstrip in the morning and flight back to La Ceiba.
