The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: A dizzying 15-day adventure that includes wildlife viewing by dugout canoe, visits to the Misquito and Pech tribes, jungle hikes through cloud forests, and rafting the Cangrejal River.
When to go: Year-round
Difficulty: Easy to moderate
Travel advisory: There's a local saying about Honduras: The only things written in stone are the hieroglyphics. People here are not accustomed to dealing with outsiders. Take delays and logistical snafus in stride.
