Miskito Cays

Explore the abundant shallow water reef and island communities known as the Miskito Cays. These unusual towns have Caribbean blue water instead of streets with ancient wooden sailboats and dugout canoes instead of cars. The Cays are virtually unvisited and unexplored by outsiders - a real life hidden paradise.

Members of the nearby coastal communities who harvest seafood from the beautiful Caribbean waters seasonally inhabit these islands. These rugged inhabitants are a diverse mix of Caribbean Creole and Indigenous Miskito divers. Going to these communities with Adventuricanica is a rare chance to be part of this unique maritime culture. We know the people and you will be treated as family.

The main island of Miskito Cay has an interesting network of lagoons in its center that few have ever explored. Along with excellent fishing, these lagoons are home to unique wildlife including stingrays, turtles, crabs, birds and a lot more. With such a lengthy history of pirate action in the area, it is quite likely that there is booty buried somewhere out there.

While you're with us you will eat like a king. Feast on the freshest fish, lobster, crab and conch on a breezy deck overlooking the Caribbean while you stay in private houses, being attended to for your every need. Here you can swim everywhere, the water is warm, blue and inviting. All you have to do is enjoy yourself in this paradise.

Trips to the Cays take a minimum of 3 days and can be customized for any length and variety of explorations. Your first day will be spent traveling from Puerto Cabezas in an outboard fiberglass panga, then spend as long as you can in the Cays visiting communities, snorkeling, fishing, exploring, swimming saving your last day for travel back to Puerto Cabezas.
