We got off the bus at La Ceiba and got in a taxi to take a quick ride to the ferry terminal, yet another crazy trip, with a lot of blaring of horns, and prayers said on our parts, and cars, buses and motorcycles all came perilously close, all while the taxi driver merrily sang and eyed up the local girls.
Surviving the journey we made it through to the ferry terminal and after a brief wait we boarded the boat for the 1.
The ferry journey was rather rough, with a steady pitching back and forth, some poor passengers had more than their fill and filled a plastic bag, no more need be said on the matter. Finally we made it to Roatan, and collected our luggage; kind of airport stylie, except we had to give tickets to the officials who'd search for our luggage and then give it back to us. We then had to do the same at a little office to reclaim our pocket knives, as many of us (me included) had stored them in our hand luggage not realising this wasn't allowed.
Then one journey, in a private van, later we made it to our hotel in West End Roatan.
Having checked in we went for dinner at a nice restaurant overlooking the sea, I had a whole fried snapper, which was beautiful!
Following we made our way to the supermarket bought some supplies and headed back to the hotel, needless to say a few beers, rums and card games later we found ourselves playing around in the pool ... ops!
