Waspám feels different from the rest of RAAN. Yes, it’s just as poor and has the same development issues and jagged-edge feel as Bilwi and Las Minas, but there’s also a simple beauty: children at play, twittering flocks of parakeets in the trees, and dugout canoes plying the edges of Waspám’s biggest attraction, the lazy, mocha Río Coco.

Known as Wangki in Miskito, the Río Coco, the longest river in Central America. links 116 Miskito communities that run from the rainforested interior to the Atlantic coastal marshlands. This makes Waspám, its epicenter, the cultural, geographic and economic heart of the Mosquitia. It also forms a natural border with Honduras, a fact most Miskitos prefer to ignore. You shouldn’t. If you plan on crossing into Honduras, get your passport stamped at Bilwi Migración.

But even if you remain on the Nica side of things, you will probably spend plenty of time on the river. Upstream lies the Reserva de Biosfera Bosawás. Access isn’t cheap and will require boat charters, but trips are easily organized and your memories will be well worth the investment.
