Map of Limon; click on points of interest
Colon, Honduras is a rustic Garifuna town consisting of a few thousand souls, many of whom make a living fishing.
Limon is accessed by a single gravel road and although in fairly good repair,
expect to spend an hour and a half gulping dust before you get there.
Unlike Trujillo, the coast is not unprotected by a bay
and the waves roll in; it's quite spectacular. The beach is wonderful, and
unlike Trujillo, some measuress are taken to keep the whole beach clean.
The Garifuna town of Limon; lovely sunset seen from beach.
The people are very friendly; it's hard to pass a person
without a greeting. If you don't mind roughing it a little, Limon is the
kind of place you can spend a lot of time. We met a Canadian called Derek Parent, guide and
who lived behind the Hotel Martinez. If you
see him, buy him a drink; he's a great storyteller.
