Last year, Nivel Marvin visited Honduras by invitation of Honduras’ President Juan Orlando Hernandez. His mission was to create Nigel Marven’s new Wild Honduras documentary film! The trip was coordinated by one of the leading nature and birding tour operators in Honduras: Beaks and Peaks. During his more that three-week trip to Honduras, Nigel traveled throughout Honduras. He went to the regular tourist destinations such as Copan Ruinas and Cayos Cochinos. In Copan Ruinas he was fascinated by the Scarlet Macaws flying freely throughout the Copan Archaeological Site.
Nigel also went to the City of Gracias, in Western Honduras. There he saw the Honduran Emerald Hummingbird, and endemic bird that lives in the dry forests of Honduras. He also came to the North Coast of Honduras, where he spent a couple of nights at La Villa de Soledad B&B an award-winning boutique jungle lodge right on the Cangrejal River. This river is the boundary between two national Parks in Honduras. Pico Bonito is on the West bank of the river. Nombre de Dios National Park is on the East side of the river.
Without doubt, the most exciting and trying part of his trip was to the famous city of the Monkey God in the remote La Moskitia region in Honduras. He spent several days deep in the jungle by invitation of the government of Honduras. There he spoke with archaeologists and biology specialist who are conducting a serious study of the surrounding habitat and the archaeological site.
After several months, Nigel Marven’s new Wild Honduras film has finally seen the light. During the recent British Bird Fair in Rutland Water in the UK. Nigel Marven was there in person. It is with great pleasure that we share this wonderful and professional documentary about the many natural wonders of Honduras. I hope that you enjoy it!
