Cayos Cochinos Foundation Scientific Station

Located in the 2nd largest Cay, Minor Cay, the scientific station offers beds for rent in their shared cabins. Surrounded by coconut trees and holding one of the longest beaches in the Cays. Walk through sandy trails, enjoying an unspoiled ocean view with the beautiful Honduran mountain range at one side and the unspoiled tropical rainforest of the Cay on your backside. You will find an abundance of iguanas snacking on the beach and throughout the hiking trails, and you might even cross paths with the famous pink boa which roam naturally on the cay! The main intended use of the cabins in the Scientific station is for students or volunteers who would like to partake in volunteering opportunities the Cayos Cochinos Foundation offers.
