Fishing -- While cultural and wildlife tours are on the rise, fishing has always been the game in Brus Laguna. The abundance of snook, tarpon (sometimes as large as 90kg/198 lb.), and grouper has attracted elite anglers from all over the world to Brus Laguna, though the lack of proper facilities has led to a downturn. There was a proper lodge set up at Cannon Island for several years, and there was even talk of renovating; but so far, anglers will just have to stay in town. Team Marin Fishing (tel. 504/9987-0875; www.teammarinhondurasfishing.com) runs the most frequent and serious tours (all-inclusive) in the lagoon, which includes fishing, all meals, round-trip airline tickets from La Ceiba, a local guide in La Ceiba, a local English-speaking fishing guide for all fishing excursions, boat transport, and airport transfers. Tours start at $889 per person, based on double occupancy, for a 3-night/4-day excursion. Team Marin also runs a unique 4-day jungle trip to the rarely visited Lalla Sanni ruins, at $517 per person.

Kayaking, Inner Tubing, Horseback Riding -- Nearly every other tour in Brus Laguna can be set up with La Ruta Moskitia (www.larutamoskitia.com) or with Dorkas Wood (tel. 504/2443-8009) at the Yamari Savannah Cabañas. One of the more relaxed options is to explore the creeks and lagoons deep in the pine savannah by kayak or rubber inner tube. Guides will point out the birds and other wildlife you pass by -- which, unless you set out quite early, will be few. You can also ride through the savannah on horseback, even riding to and from the Yamari Cabañas.
