La Moskitia, "Mosquito Coast" in English, is one of the wildest and most pristine jungles of Latin America.
First colonized by missionaries and then pirates along the coast, this jungle region is home to the Pech, Miskito and Tawahka Indians. The indigenous Garifuna live on its coast.
This rainforest is also home to amazing wildlife including the endangered tapir and jaguar. The Rio Platano Biosphere has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The possibilities for kayaking up rivers and into lagoons are unlimited.

Note: Prior to the CASKE 2000 expedition kayaking the full length of the Caribbean coast of Honduras from Guatemala to Nicaragua had never been done. As well, there was very little documentary material available on the lifestyle of the Miskito, Pech and Garifuna peoples. Follow our adventures to experience both.
