Cayos Cochinos

Cayos Cochinos is a small archipelago located off the north coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea. The two main islands are called Cayo Menor and Cayo Mayor, and there are 13 other small cays and islets in the group. The total land area is only about 2.6 square miles, and the population is estimated to be around 250 people.

The islands are part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world, and are known for their beautiful coral reefs and abundant marine life. The waters around the islands are a popular destination for scuba divers and snorkelers.

Cayos Cochinos has a long history of human habitation. It is believed that the first people to inhabit the islands were the Paya Indians, who lived there for hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. The islands were used as a base for Spanish pirates in the 17th and 18th centuries, and the ruins of a Spanish fort can still be seen on Cayo Menor.

In the 19th century, the islands were used as a base for the British Navy during the War of the Atlantic. Later, in the 20th century, the islands were used by the United States Navy during World War II.

Today, Cayos Cochinos is a popular destination for tourists, and the islands are home to a number of small hotels and resorts. The islands are also part of the Cayos Cochinos Marine Park, which was established in 1996 to protect the coral reefs and marine life in the area.
