We were the only ship in port that day, Which, compared to other Caribbean stops, made for a very relaxing day on a really beautiful island. With a group of other people we met, we went to Capt'n Vans motorcycle shop, on the west end, and rented a scooter for the day. This mode of transportation to explore a foreign destination is really fabulous. Easy to move from place to place, and no problem parking. Barbi and I shared one scooter, which worked out well. This little machine had no problem taking us up hills at a quick clip. We stopped at an iguana farm, explored deserted beaches, we were inspired overlooking the ocean from the top of a mountain, and thoroghly enjoyed the wind in our faces.
One of our last stops, was a very popular beach close to the motorcycle shop, where we met a man from Idaho. He had visited during a cruise a few years before, and loved it so much, he packed up is family and moved here, bought a hamburger stand; and never looked back. Along the way, we bought more souvenirs to remember our stay here.
If you are wanting a warm place to visit, where the people are friendly, and the sites are amazing, check out Roatan, Honduras. You can get there on any number of cruise lines, on a Western Caribbean itinerary. Let us know when you would like to go, and we might have to find a reason to join you.
We are here for you.
