The Cochino Islands are part of the eight Bay Islands that lie some 40 miles off the Caribbean coast of the Honduras, an archipelago patchwork that is all that remains of an ancient submerged volcanic mountain range, known as the Bonacca Ridge. The islands are a national park that is home to 15 species of amphibians and reptiles, 43 species of birds, two small colonies of brown pelicans and a diverse display of coral fauna. You can also visit the tiny fishing village of Chachuate on Lower Monitor Cay or snorkel in the crystal clear waters.
The underwater environment is rich and extensive; reefs surround the islands, often within swimming distance of the shore. Caves and caverns are a common feature, with a wide variety of sponge and the best collection of pillar coral in the Caribbean. Several parts have been proposed as marine reserves.
