  1. “Neat tour, awesome guides, great information”
    We took the tour to the Three Cascades site. Our guides, Francisco, Marco, and John, were very knowledgeable and spoke English well. They knew about the different cultures, history, flora & fauna, and development opportunities in that part of Honduras. The tour was very well prepared and executed; we drove on a newer Toyota bus, and when one lady fell and scraped her knee, the guides were right there with a first aid kit including alcohol wipes, polysporin, bandages, and latex gloves for cleanliness. One of the guides, John, showed us the hand-built water diversion dam above the waterfalls. He had been part of the team that had hauled the dry cement mix up to the site on foot. They were very proud of having a reliable and clean water supply. After the hike, which was hot and humid, we had a swim in the lowest of the three pools–very refreshing! Entertainment was a dance by the locals of the Garifuna people. Afterwards we had samples of native food at their new local restaurant, complete with coconut milk straight from the coconuts opened by machete in front of our eyes! The only downside to the tour was that after the hike and short swim it would have been nice to have a bit more of a meal since it was noontime. These folks are working hard to improve their lives and I have a deep and abiding respect for their efforts.
