The village of Guarisne, six long and bumpy kilometers from Ojojona , is a traditional Lenca community and a center for ceramics. Near the town of Guasucarán, 16 kilometers by rough dirt road from Ojojona, is one of the country’s best examples of a colonial mining complex. One worker with the Instituto Hondureño de Antropología e Historia reports that several of the large hornos (ovens) stand near the old mine, their chimneys still intact.
To get there, drive or hitch a (rare) ride to Guasucarán, and from there, hire a guide for the several-hour hike. A bus drives out to Guasucarán once a day from Ojojona . There’s nowhere to stay in town, but you could probably find a bed without difficulty if you ask around, or you could camp. Bring your own food.
