Our digs for the evening were a bit dissapointing. For a rather newish place we had expected a more comfortable bed, and for $15 a room we used to getting basic nicities like soap, towels and sheets. The staff was friendly until we decided not to book any tours with them. I guess we didn't 'get with the program'. The spot on the river was nice, but the food was rather uninspired. Being within walking distance of the pools is nice, but not too hard to get to from Lanquin. Along the road to the pools are Mayans growing cocoa plants. I had never seen them growing before - interesting how the pods form off of the trunk. An adorable little girl was selling homemade chocolate patties by the road. It is gritty, maybe from the coarse Honduran sugar - anyway the flavor is wonderful, surprisingly like chocolate-covered coffee beans.
