Term Cayuco
Definition

Indigenous handmade vessel carved from a single piece of wood.  Smaller than a canoe, Cayucos have round flat bottoms and no fins, steered and moved with a paddle.

Historically, these canoes were used for inshore fishing and were very common in areas such as Miches, Sabana de la Mar, and Canita.
