Located next to ¨Micos Lagoon¨, this village is one of Tela’s most beautiful attractions. Not only because of its amazing ecological beauty but because it holds the culture of the Garifunas.The area holds many activities like boat tours through the lagoon for bird watching and crocodile observation. You can choose to hike in the manglers, eat the traditional meals of the Garifuna people, canoe and even stay at the local lodges.

First, you need a 4-wheel drive vehicle, capable of driving through sand. Second, this is where people live, so be respectful. Third, plan on eating at one of the little restaurants. You won't be disappointed, and it provides income for the local economy. The amenities are extremely limited, but if you are interested in the gracious Garifuna people, this is... More

One of the only beaches I would recommend on the mainland of Honduras. Open sea so the waves can be a little choppy compared to other beaches. Kinda off the beaten path so it would be recommended to go with varias people/cars.

You get there on your own car, settle a boat trip with a guide for 1-2 hours. You can ask them to prepare a lunch to eat when you return or go across the Laguna de Los Micos to a very nice hotel there is on the other side. Bring your own water and drinks since there is very few... More

The best way to get here is by boat, although you can also drive along the sand bar. A great experience, a good way to get a small taste of Garifuna culture.

Miami is what all of the Garifuna villages were fifty years ago. Life is simple, not easy, but simple, and is based upon the sea and the land. The beach and the lagoon should be explored and enjoyed. The people and their stories are just as enchanting and interesting. Sit on a log and relax, visit, and learn of and... More

Lovely way to spend an afternoon. Miami Garifuna Village promotes it's own tour operators. The residents are attempting to sustain their village from more tourism.. Tela is on the coast and is approx. a 1 hour trip, it's becoming a little more known over the last 4 yrs or so, but it retains its authenticity. We had one of the... More

try to go to Miami, Tela! this is a garifuna village. Their dialect consists of a mix of: French, English, Dutch and african. Their coconut bread and machaca(plantain pure with coconut milk) are really good!

Still Isolated but easy to reach (by 4x4) ideal to spend the day in the most primitive way among the garifuna villagers with no electricity in front of beautiful white sand beaches and walking distance to dense jungle; absolutely relaxing and hypnotic. Normally very few people visiting so the beaches and walks are alone and relaxing.

We spent a week in Tela during the Christmas season and booked the three-tour package with Garifuna Tours, one of which was to Miami Beach and the Garifuna village here. I don't know if I'd call it an "authentic" Garifuna village, seeing as most of the people have moved to neighbouring villages that have a little more infrastructure than this... More

After a 20min Bus ride we crossed the water by a hand driven boat. From there we walked 10min trough a town to and up at the beach for a 2hour hike towards Maimi. The place is awesome and you can refress yourself with some drinks. We wanted to continue to the national park but that wasn't possible because of... More
