“Excellent - must do in La Ceiba”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

It was our first time rafting and we had an amazing time.
The river was absolutely beautiful - be sure to take your go pro and they provide the opportunity to also jump off some of the rocks etc. as well as the rafting.

We highly recommend La Moskitia Ecoaventuras, they provided a no fuss hotel shuttle, had excellent safety mechanisms in place and great English.
Also, this company is run by locals who actually live on the mountain and have been members of the community for the majority of their life.

“Fantastic Outfitter for Trips to La Moskitia”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

My husband and I went on a 5 day tour of La Moskitia with Moskitia Ecoaventuras in early April. We stayed 3 nights in Las Marias and one more in Brus Laguna. If you enjoy wilderness/rain forest hiking, bird watching, and rustic ecotourism, La Moskitia Ecoaventuras is the outfitter to choose if you want to experience the more remote areas of Honduras. Our guide, Mino, was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. On our jungle hikes we saw countless birds (Mino would call out to them and they would answer and come to investigate), white-faced monkeys, a troop of coati, and several cool lizards and iguanas. We ate as the locals (rice, beans, plantains, chicken, beef) and the accommodations provided mosquito nets and bedding. The accommodations were rustic but comfortable and we had no problems falling asleep and waking up refreshed. We would highly recommend La Moskitia Ecoaventuras and are considering going back for their multi-day rafting trip down the Rio Platano.

“This guys are the bomb at Rafting!”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

I went a couple of months ago with some friends to do some rafting and kayaking, we spend a week with La Moskitia Ecoaventuras, located in La Ceiba, we had a blast every single day we were there! We had planned some other activities while we were in La Ceiba, but we decided to enjoy the whole week with these guys and indeed it was the best decision.

The local guides, the owner and all the people we met there were super welcoming, Rafting at El Cangrejal river with Moskitia Ecoaventuras is Not to be missed!

“Great rafting”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

Exhilarating and breathtaking adventure on the gorgeous Rio Cangrejal in the competent hands of the guides at La Moskitia! The guides are local Hondurians that have grown up on the Cangrejal and know every stone. We rafted with them two days, first the normal tourist route and then a more difficult route upriver. Fantastic!

“Amazing experience at Rio El Cangrejal”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

I did the rafting tour at Rio El Cangrejal with La Mosquitia Ecoaventuras and it was great. The guides are very profesional and they managed to get my adrenaline up, without ever feeling unsafe. Also they use very good equipment and all the staff is well trained.

I highly recommend it.
