Where are the 'BIVA RIOS' (sp) . . . Off Honduras ?

I know this location is somewhere off Honduras or Nicaragua. Could someone give me the correct spelling and the location please. I hear people stopping there all the time on the single side band. Please tell me if you can the best and safest places to stop on the way from Roatan to San Andreas..
Thanks James

Sailing is 80% boredom and 20% sheer terror so FIRSTMATE then go sailing. Life is a journey, not a destination.

The correct spelling is Vivario Cays (Cayos Vivorillo) remember Havana is pronouned like Habanna. They are located at 15 50N , 83 18W according to Reed's Almanac. I haven't personally stopped there as I prefer deeper water but a lot of people do stop in there and speak highly of it. I'm sure someone will add more info shortly.

Not many places to stop on that route. Indeed, Vivario is pretty much it I think. Not much there from what I know. Small fish camp/settlement. I didn't stop, but I've heard that it's a decent spot to stop for weather, or a brief exploration. I went on by from San Andres and Providencia on up to Guanaja. So no first-hand knowledge other than when routing I didn't see much else out there that looked do-able in terms of stopping off.

Good luck

I know folks that go there all the time to fish..It is Vivarillos...look up S/V Valentino online and you will find their blog..The above is correct..there isnt anything there but if you are looking for some great place that hasnt been touched, this could be it..If you go north from Colon Panama to San Andres and then head West, you just might make is approx 450 miles or so from Colon. The way point above is correct..BTW Bluewater books has charts.
