Another seaside Garífuna settlement, east of Santa Rosa and reached by a 34-kilometer dirt road, Limón is infrequently visited by outsiders and has a very remote, isolated feel, lost between the Mosquitia and the rest of Honduras.
Beyond Limón, the road goes via Plan de Flores and Planes to Punta Piedra, where it hits the beach, and then continues on to Sangrelaya, at the edge of the Mosquitia. From here, usually one truck a day continues on the beach to Batalla, near Palacios, or it is usually possible to get a ride by boat.
Five buses a day run between Tocoa and Sangrelaya, the last leaving from Tocoa at 1 p.m. for the five-hour drive. Buses between Tocoa and Limón pass more frequently, the last in the early afternoon. If you’re in Trujillo, get off at Corocito and wait for a Limón bus there.
