First and most importantly- this is a special destination that will thrill some people and turn off others. These islands are relatively remote and have minimal development. There are few interactions with people outside of Turtle Bay and few luxuries. HOWEVER, there is/are: natural environment, bright starry skies, interesting animals, quiet places to listen to nature, and some of the... More

Laura and I just finished our first trip to PBR in September, 2012. OMG, this place is amazing! The staff here will make you feel like a rock star. The staff is super friendly and treat you like family. A special shout out to the best host (Roger - thanks for making this our favorite vacation ever!) and the best... More

This was my 2nd time at Plantation Beach Resort in 4 months. Words can’t adequately describe my time in Cayos Cochinos, and I can’t tell you how extremely grateful I am for the experiences I am lucky enough to have had. During 15 dives, I saw things I can only describe as magical. Swimming with schools of Blue Tang, watching... More

My husband Bob and myself just returned from 2 weeks at Plantation beach and we couldn't be happier with our vacation. While it is true that PBR has a rustic feel to it, for me that made it all the more injoyable-it felt like a real adventure and very remote from all the troubles of the world. .THe staff at... More

I had a great time on Cayos Cochinos at PBR. I did a lot of really great, really fun dives, especially enjoyed the best night dive I've had here (lots of huge lobsters, a gigantic porcupine fish, frog fish, several octopus... I could go on). Joe and Emily are both great divers and great company and took good care of... More

The experience that my friends and i (and other guests) had here were quite disapointing on multiple different levels. The rooms and main lobby need updating. Some of the wood on the docks were rotted. There were nails sticking up out of boards on the main dock (which i steped on). The main diving boat wasnt working (although promised by... More

CayosCochinos, General Manager at Plantation Beach Resort, responded to this review

Yes, at least it was a good week of diving:) Otherwise Murphy's Law had it's say. The primary dive boat was finally put back in service in June, dock repairs made and other issues addressed as well. The owner and manager and our staff DO care very much and it pains us to have a single guest go away dis-appointed.... More

=This was our first trip to Honduras so we didn't know what to expect. We prayed and asked God to show us all the beauty in this country, and He sure did. We did not plan to go to Cayos Cochinos but when the opportunity was given to us we went for it. We took the boat from Sambo Creek... More

As others have noted, the first priority is the quality of the diving and snorkeling, and it is very good as the coral is wonderfully healthy and the fishlife robust. Boat rides to dive sites are brief, which is a plus, but the calm cove where Plantation Beach sits is also fabulous for both snorkeling and diving. It's common to... More
