... first night so just hit the sack when we got here, but it was a pretty noisy night and morning (we were woken by cars and lorries on the main road at 7.30am!) so we asked to be moved and we now have a lovely room overlooking the ocean - nice! So, yesterday we went on a day long trip to see the volcanoes, was a good trip, if a bit rushed, but visited a coffee farm and saw green turtles on the beach on the ...

Our flight tomorrow is around 2pm and we will get to San Francisco around 9pm local time.
