    Sunset on the Lake

    by atufft Updated Apr 21, 2016

    The boat ride provided great photos of the lake around sunset. Coming back now to update and improve this tip brings a heart throb. My wife and I romanced as we watched the birdlife and lake lose it's light at sunset.

    Early Morning Birdwatching From Shore

    by atufft Written Jan 13, 2012

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I got up early to join Robert Gallardo, perhaps the foremost birdwatcher in Honduras. As we sat quietly, Robert was able to tease them closer with his recorded bird calls. Don't forget your binoculars.

    Birdwatching Wetland Areas on the Lake

    by atufft Written Jan 13, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are floating masses of vegetation, some of which are imported species now part of the lake ecology, that support a variety of bird species. In the first photo, commercial trailers that haul away the fish are shown right on shore. The run-off from this operation no doubt contributes to lake pollution.

    Restaurant at El Cortijo del Lago: Fresh Lake Food

    by atufft Written Jan 13, 2012

    John and Marta have trained mostly locals boys to prepare food according to their standards. "The women are too hard to train", John says, "because they already know how to cook". The standard fare here is fresh fish caught from the lake, along with a carefully prepared salad of greens and herbs. Service is very informal at long tables.

    Sorry folks, not photos...trust me it's good.
