Cayos Cochinos Day Tour
The Cayos Cochinos islands, are two small islands, Cayo Menor and Cayo Grande, and 13 tiny coral cays. These stunning quiet strips of land are home to just 108 inhabitants, known as the Garifuna (descendants of West African, Central African, Island Carib, and Arawak people). Take a small motorized boat over to both of the main islands, snorkel at the second largest barrier reef in the world and stop off to grab an authentic Garifuna seafood lunch on one of the small cays, Chachahuate.
