Rio Coco Northern Nicaragua

The Rio Coco is the border separation between much of Nicaragua and Honduras.  The Rio Coco which flows 750 kilometers into the Caribbean Sea is not a tourist destination but its beauty is unmistakable.  The river is home to many different Miskito Indian communities.  There isn’t very much contact with the outside world in these communities.  Usually the only ones venturing up and down the river are government and non-government agencies providing aid as well as church groups.  The Coco River runs along the beautiful Bosawas Natural Reserve.  The Bosawas Natural Reserve is the largest of its kind in Central America and boasts some of the best wild life in its natural habitat in the region.
