Welcome to Reserva de la Biósfera del Río Plátano
One of the best places to experience all this nature is in Las Marías, a village in the heart of the reserve with around 100 Miskito and Pech families. There is no running water or electricity here, though there are a few generators.
Short trails around the village are good for birding, but for longer trips it's essential to hire a guide and arrange camping equipment and food. Guides do not speak English. Bookings are difficult to organize in advance and not really necessary.
