Laundry Day

Not much happening today. Doing laundry and planning our crossing to the Bay Islands, Honduras, which looks like it will be a little adventure.

Basically the route looks as follows:

Wed 21 Nov 2007, take the bus to Chetumal, cross the border into Belize and then take another bus to Belize city where we'll stay for the night.

Thu 22 Nov 2007, take the bus to Placencia from where we want to take the ferry to Honduras. The ferry only goes once a week on Friday morning and apparently you have to book the ticket the day before with your passport which is why we need to get there on Thursday.

Fri 23 Nov 2007, take the ferry from Placencia, Belize to Puerto Cortes, Honduras. Apparently we'll get to Puerto Cortes at 11am so we can then take the bus to San Pedro Sula and from there take another bus to La Ceiba.

Sat 24/Sun 25 Nov 2007, depending on when we get to La Ceiba we'll catch another ferry from La Ceiba to Utila on the Bay Islands.

Mon 26 Nov 2007 - early Dec 2007, dive course on the Bay Islands and some chilled out vibes island style!

UPDATE: After finishing our laundry we ended up catching a bus in the evening to Playa del Carmen which had been recommended to us before. Nice place with some great food (we had amazing spring rolls at a chinese restaurant) but it's very touristic, even more so than what we saw of Cancun. The beach looked great but we got there in the dark and left at 6am the next morning to get to Belize early.

Well the trip sure sounds eventful and exciting - especially the dive course part and the island chilling - hope the two of you continue to enjoy.
Cheers.
