Guanaja | The green island
Guanaja | The green island
The time had come to do some water activities in the second most important coral reef in the world, we saw snails, fishes of every colors and even lobsters. We reached deep sea and stopped the boat, and stated swimming a little bit, the water is calm and crystal clear and you can see a great amount of fishes in their natural habitat. There are some areas in Guanaja which are considered No Fishing area, like Long Reef and Michael Rock, with the intent of guarding the biodiversity. You can ask about them in the Towns hall of Guanaja or to any local.
Dereck and Dennis went deeper and they found many lobsters even a blowfish, and also a small reef where they found a lobster and an eel fighting, you can see a little bit the lobster’s antennas. In the whole area you can see variety of corals, fan and brain coral and at the same time they form small ecosystems where many other species live.
It was an amazing experience, on our way out we went to one of the most iconic hotels of Guanaja, The Villa On Dunbar Rock, built over a 30m cay and dedicated to scuba diving, it has a panoramic pool, terraces and even a heliport.

The first day in Guanaja had gone by, and had realized why they call it the Green Island, for its beautiful white sand beaches, its sea life which is one of the biggest jewels of the world and for its dense forests. We woke up really early and the day seemed clear, and we saw and amazing sunrise from Vista Caribe. We went to have breakfast at Mi Casa Too because we had a day full of activities ahead.
We met Lupita, a pit bull that guards Mi Casa Too, it barks a lot, but in the end is the most sweet and noble of dogs.
We started with the right foot and went to the town hall of Guanaja, we were received by the deputy mayor Mireya Guillen, who told us some of the activities that they are planning on doing to make of Guanaja a completely green island. The deputy mayor gave us a tour through every corner of Bonacca cay, that has a population of 10 thousand inhabitants and consists of the union of two cays of 0.6 km. We also talked with Luis Feldman, councilor of the town hall, who took us to one of the most important lobster packers.

After snorkeling in the second biggest and most important coral reef we went back to Vista Caribe and prepared some piña coladas and ceviche of lobster and shrimp that we had fished that day.
We arrived and got into business, we entered the kitchen and expected everything to be great. We began with the piña coladas and then the lobster and shrimp ceviche, which we added inion, tomato and lemon. After cooking we left everything ready and went to have dinner at Mi Casa Too, where they had made for us a special dinner. It was a big fish, which they call Red Snapper, a deep water fish, they are the biggest and most difficult fish to get caught.
We headed back to Vista Caribe, to eat and drink the piña coladas and a nice bar where we had an amazing view.
