I'm just wondering what the situation is at Bocawina and/or Cockscomb with snakes. I know that Belize has poisonous snakes, although I don't think I've ever seen one on my trips there. In Costa Rica they were abundant! There they told us to wear "snake boots" aka tall rubber boots when hiking in the jungle. Is it the same here? Or would we be OK wearing Keen types of shoes? I'm guessing that around the Hopkins area there are probably not many snakes?
Does anyone know about hiking in the Mountain Pine Ridge area? Again, we stayed in Bullet Tree, climbed all over the place there by the river and hiked around at Rio On Pools. We never saw a snake and definitely wore Keen sandals the whole time. We will be staying at Hidden Valley Inn this time. They have over 90 miles of hiking.
