Refugio de Vida Silvestre Guaymoreto
The Guaymoreto Wildlife Refuge, covering more than 7,000 hectares, surrounds a broad lagoon formed by the Cabo de Honduras, east of Trujillo. The lagoon, canals, mangrove swamps, and a small island are excellent bird- and monkey-viewing areas.
Local fishermen reputedly have organized an ad-hoc organization to take visitors on tours of the lagoon in cayucos (canoes), charging US$20 for up to four people for a three-hour tour, while more formal tours can be arranged through Tourist Options (www.hondurastouristoptions.com).
