Not only did I visit Cayos Cochinos, Roatan and Omoa while in Honduras; I also visited the Pico Bonito area in La Ceiba. A very old little bus took us up to the mountains where the Pico Bonito national park is located. There are various ways to get to know this area, and one of them is to do so by white water rafting. This was a lot of fun and I’ll talk more about this experience in another post, but for now I just want to share some of the pictures I took of the amazing views around Río Cangrejal!

Roatan is one of those places you go to just to relax. There is not too much sightseeing to do on the island itself, but the sightseeing you can do under water is endless. I’m not a diver, so I just love this island just to chill, empty my head and have some me-time while drinking a cocktail on the beach.
One of my favorite moments of the trip was that day when we went paddle boarding. I had never done this before, but I had been looking for a while to try it out! When my friends told me that that was what we were gonna be doing that day, I was thrilled. It was just so relaxing to stand and sit on that board, while soaking up the sun and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Continue reading
During my 2,5 week stay in Honduras, I went to Omoa twice. Omoa isn’t a known place among tourists, but the locals love it and they know all about the best places to eat, the cleanest beaches and the most charming little spots to explore. Eduardo took me to this amazing fish restaurant with a beach view and I must say, it was perfect. The food was delicious, the natural juices that they were serving were very rico and the little sea breeze made the whole setting even better. Continue reading
Good morning guys!
I hope everyone is having a great start of the new week! I can’t believe that it’s almost the end of August. Summer flew by! Next week I’m starting school again and this semester I’m taking one photography class and a bunch of classes to get my personal trainer certificate. So excited for all that! Continue reading
After showing you the underwater sights and some portraits of the locals, I wanted to share some pictures of the island itself with you today. The islands and cays are just so beautiful. There are coconuts hanging on the trees, iguanas and different kinds of snakes living silently in the sand and trees, beautiful white sandy beaches and the bluest water surrounding the islands.

While taking the tour through the islands and cays of Cayos Cochinos we ate fresh fish, prepared by the locals. The local garifunas live in these little huts on one of the cays where they cook various fish dishes for all the tourists who come visiting them. I loved seeing how the little black kids were leading such simple yet happy lives. Continue reading
Cayos Cochinos has always been on my to-visit list and after wanting to go for 5 years I finally decided to plan it in when I visited Honduras in July. I asked my friend, Eduardo, to come with me as he had been wanting to go too! Continue reading
I’m from a family with 3 girls. I’m the oldest one and have a sister who’s 1 year younger and one who’s 4 years younger. Even though in theory I have 2 sisters, I feel like I have 3 sisters. In 2009, I lived in Honduras for a year and the family a lived with had 3 boys and a girl. The little girl was just a baby back then, but I fell in love with her the moment I met her.

Since we’re living in California and we’re spending a lot of time at the beach, it’s essential for the baby to have lots of swim gear! Whenever I say ‘beach’ Slaiden runs off to the remote of the garage to open it, so I can get his stroller and his little bucket out of there. As we come closer to the beach he will point at the water and once I get him out of the stroller he’s on the loose! Continue reading
Honduras is a beautiful country. One that I carry in my heart. The first weekend I spent in Honduras, 2 weeks ago, my host family took me to Rio Coto where we met up with our neighbors. We ate the most delicious en fresh fried fish with tajadas and rice and beans. We swam in the water, jumped off the little pier, took some great GoPro footage, build sandcastles, took a ride on the banana boat and just enjoyed the great view of the surroundings. Continue reading
