Very nice location, rooms were cute, pool was nice. The staff, once we got to know them a little bit, were very friendly. We would never normally pay this much for accommodations but our original plans fell through at pretty much the last minute so we considered ourselves lucky to get 2 rooms at the Catamaran. Breakfast was included and was very good but the menu was uninspired for other meals. The house wine is (in my opinion) undrinkable. It just seems like a shame because this place could be a real gem with very little effort or expense.

Poor stressed and slightly sweaty Spanish speaking waiter said something back to her in Spanish which only served to incense her more. She started shouting at him about him not speaking English and when he replied (in Spanish) she just ...
... truly impressive!
Then we walked a bit further to the place where we were able to leave our belongings in the prepared wooden lockers and get changed in the dressing room. Once we were ready we jumped to one of the limestone pools. The water was quite cold, so we had to keep moving. After climbing down a set of small waterfalls we appeared on the edge of one limestone pool from where it was possible to jump to a lower pool underneath. Since I was freezing ...
... for a long time. All in all it was good to feel the water again. Sunday was the final of the World Cup and I think the most important day of the year here in Xela. Myself and a crew of 12 went to the main bar area at 11:30 for a 1pm start and we were lucky to get seats as it was already so busy. A huge stage was set up with a band and everyone was rowdy. I decided to jump on the Germany bandwagon purely because everyone except my teacher ...
... to care - she was inconsolable. After talking to one of the other kids there, he told us 'No, I'm not her friend, I'm her brother, no, I'm her cousin' - it all seemed a bit better then, but boy did we feel sorry for the wee girl.
The next day we spent chilling out round the place - reading, swimming, sleeping. That night we started to pack our things up for an early departure the next day. It was at this ...
