Miami and Jeanette Kawas National Park

Miami - Honduras

The small hamlet of Miami has been the starting point of my excursion to the Jeanette Kawas Park. One morning, I left with two fishermen that brought me to the park, then after a visit to the site, I hiked back the 10 km of sandy beaches separating the park and the village of Miami. It was a long hike at the beginning of the evening, under the full moon, to avoid the extreme heat of the afternoon.

The park has been both a highlight and a disappointment. A highlight, because of the splendid landscapes, and a disappointment because of all the trash found on the beaches.

This small and curious contraption is a modified motorbike to allow a man with paralyzed legs to handle it. He can ride the bike only with the help of its arms and hands.
