Cayos Cochinos, Honduras, May 2014. Daily life on Chachauate. Cayos Cochinos, also known as the Pig Keys or Hog Islands, is one of the best kept secrets of Honduras. Small islands surrounded by coral barrier reef emerge from the crystal clear water. The diversity of fish species is incredible and the Garifuna culture which thrive on the islands have set their roots on the two islands of Chachauate and Cayo Mayor in a village called East End. Their primary income is fishing and the modest stream of eco tourism that comes to the islands. Nearly every morning, fishermen launch their wooden canoes before dawn to return home with a bounty of fish for sale on the mainland or to cook at home. From the Bay islands on the Caribbean coast, via the lush jungles of the interior to the ancient Mayan culture of Copan, Honduras is one big adventure. Photo by Frits Meyst / MeystPhoto.com
