We got our ferry alright, and arrived on the island 45 minutes later at about quarter to five and it was still so hot, especially with our huge bags on our back! Unfortunately, the recommended guest house 'Tina's Backpackers' from my guidebook was full up (unless we wanted to share a sofa in someone else's room!) so we had to find somewhere else to stay. But in the end we found a lovely little guest house called 'Marliny's' just up the road where we managed to get a room with 2 double beds for half the price (BZ$32 - about 10 pounds).
Suprisingly after so much sleep, I was still asleep this morning when the alarm went off at 8.30am. But we got up and had some breakfast downstairs in the restaurant attached to our guest house before we decided to go and have a little look around the island. We found the most beautiful beachy thing up at the north end by the 'Split' which is where a channel was cut by Hurricane Hattie in the 60s.
The plan for tomorrow is to go on a day long boat trip up Northwards to the reef to go snorkelling and swimming and admire the wildlife! I think we'll be leaving the island on Sunday morning, taking the water taxi back to Belize City and then heading from there either to San Ignacio in Belize or straight onto Flores, our next destination, from where we'll be going to visit the Mayan ruins at Tikal.
I hope you're all well and having fun. Have a lovely weekend, I hope the weather's got a bit better for you. xx
