To get to the beach, one often must walk through the property of a villager. But, once there, the beach is public and plank boats and nets are seen clustered here and there. Most fishing is done in the early morning.
Two Garífuna villages, Santa Fe and Guadalupe, bring the sandy trail to an end going west from Trujillo. Buses are available for this adventure, but to be on the wild side, take the two wheel drive rental car and cross your fingers you don't get stuck. These are mostly sandy beach mud trails though, with occasional creeks flowing over them, so just keep the wheels moving and you'll be OK.
Don't miss visiting the grave of William Walker in the old cemetery (up the hill a few blocks from the town center.)
Walker was a 19th century American who wanted to take over Honduras... his coup failed as he was shot by the British.
Guadalupe is even more remote from Trujillo and smaller than Santa Fe. The town has no government buildings nor church that I saw.
There is a bypass for Santa Fe which brings the road for an elevated view across the pueblo. But, at the fork, take the road to the right for a muddy meandering path into the main part of town.
The first and larger Garífuna village is Santa Fe, which has a small but respectable church with locally made ornamentation inside.
