Welcome to The Moskitia

Manatees, tapirs and jaguars all thrive here, but aren't easy to spot. Crocodiles can be seen in the waters, while the birdlife, including macaws and fish eagles, is outstanding.

A visit to this region is not for the faint-hearted – access is tricky and conditions are rustic at best. Transport and safety are improving, however, and a trip through the Moskitia is a very adventurous way to cross into Nicaragua. Lancha voyages through rivers, past savannas and across great lagoons are a highlight.
