Was a wild trip from Costa Rica. Now chilling in this new hostel called Tropicana. Its a nice place, we got here on christmass and everyone was already drunk at 1pm. All is good.
Spend about 16 hours here. We had to catch a bus to Guatemala so we had about 18 hours here. We went to a mall, got some suplies, watch The Hobbit 3 and then went for a long walk through a big avenue full of crazy ugly "belenes" which is the representation of jesus birth. Then we got to this pier full of restaurants and karaoke bars dedicated to latin american revolutionary figures like Bolivar, Che, Allende, Sandino and so on. The thing is, I did not bring my phone. So there's no pictures of this crazy and weird landscape. But seriously it was strange as fuck.Read more
Cool little island town. We had no money bacuase tours to Tikal are expensive so we stayed in a cheap lake view hostel and eat every meal at this restaurant owned by a very nice lady we called Consuelo. She was the closest thing to a grandmother we felt all trip.Read more
Chill little island. More of a backpacker friendly atmosphere but very expensive. Watched a local soccer game, that was fun. People were very much into it, probably because half of the island was playing. Some locals watched the game from their golf carts and used the horn as their vuvuzela. Not much more going on, just nice warm water, kayaks and bbq. There was a nice place to get beers and drinks at the north end of the island during happy hour it was cheap.
Other than that dirty mc nastys is cool place and they give you free rum.Read more
