Cacao Lagoon Kayaking or Typical Wood Canoeing
Located approximately 24 km. east of La Ceiba, on the highway that leads to Trujillo we find Laguna de Cacao. This small Oceanside lagoon is totally surrounded by mangrove forests, where a variety of tropical acuity birds can be seen. In addition, there are 8 troops of monkeys that inhabit the area, of which some are howler monkeys and the others are white face monkeys. The trip into the area is interesting, as the village makes a living from, its cacao, fishing, African oil palm plantations, and subsistence agriculture. Cacao, a rare tropical fruit native to America was used in pre-Columbian times as money, due to the great value that the native Indians gave to it. Today, it is the main ingredient in the manufacturing of chocolate. Within the town you will have the opportunity to see the Cacao bushes, as well as small scale sugar cane plantations and without doubt, the old, and still in use ox driven sugar mill will fascinate you. After the hike through the village, we will proceed to a small canal, where you will embark yourself on a small handmade dugout canoe or sea kayaks for a trip through the mangrove canals into the lagoon. The ride will allow you sneak up on a variety of birds and your chances of seeing some of the monkeys in the area are excellent. After the scenic ride through the quiet lagoon and its mangroves, you will have a chance to take a refreshing swim in the beach, from where you have a very beautiful view of the Cayos Cochinos, located only 15 km. away, directly in front of the beach.
