This is the second largest Miskito town, also on a Lagoon. Direct flights
connect La Ceiba and Brus Laguna. There is a small wooden hotel near the water
where they will also help you get meals. Brus is not in the rainforest, but it
is possible to arrange day trips by canoe into the rainforest of the Rio Platano
Biosphere. Brus has traditional Miskito wooden homes. No Miskito crafts are
available here. The most popular activity here is going across the Lagoon to see
the place where the Miskito salt fish for sale to Hondurans in the rest of
Honduras. Christmas dances such as tambakus and rondas make
Christmas a special time to visit here. Most Miskitos belong to the Moravian
The Moravian High School here offers a degree in Environmental Science and
usually has an interesting project going on such as a green iguana farm.
Plaplaya, a Garifuna town with a sea turtle project, is reachable by canoe from
here. It is also possible to get a canoe down the Patuca to see more Miskito
towns or to go see the Tawahkas.
