More of Less

A travel blog entry by steve_julie

As the Boomtown Rats sang in the song, "Nothing Happened Today," nothing happened today. Nigel and El are leaving but we visited with them over the long breakfast. We noticed that Elle was reading Kerouac's "On the Road." Coincidentally, Julie is reading "On the Road." We also learn that Nigel suggest she read it on the trip... Julie's read was …

The Importance of Being Idle

Up at the crack of what the **** do you care? Another open day. Two in a row now. It's starting to feel like a different kind of vacation. Stop the clocks. Having done so much travel within the overall trip there is a feeling of never having arrived. Hatchet Caye was long enough to get the "we're here" vibe, but pretty much nowhere else, so this is …

No decent sleep for days, no coffee, no food, we cross the warm drizzly compound to the main sloth area. We open doors marked, "Staff Only" and try to guess our way around walls. We climb three or four stairs then turn a corner, now elevated a couple of feet on a catwalk and stop; we have been met with a truly remarkable spectacle.

No coffee or other enjoyable morning rituals, we are at the dock at 6:05 AM. Laura stands there tapping her watch like we're crazy late. Cute. We launch into a respectable dawn rain. Actually, it's not officially a dawn rain since it started last night during calypso time and hasn't stopped since. We are in a rainforest and you can't spell …

Stop the Clocks

For the first time in far too long we wake up with no plans at all. Nada. As usual at this point it takes us a moment to summon exactly where we are. This time it is complicated by the fact that we are sleeping separately and more confounding still for Steve who is on a top bunk. "Oh yeah," he recalls, "the pillow fight." Once the fog has cleared …

    Marise and Pierre, the innkeepers at the Blue Conga are a dynamic duo of skill sets. She runs the desk, reservations, etc, and he cooks the fine looking breakfasts and offers amazing free tours to the guests. The common areas here are spotless and lovely and, though the rooms themselves are perfunctory, the overall effect of the place is warm, welcoming and relaxing.

    In terms of local proximity, the loaner bikes are all you will need to get to snorkeling, the Jaguar Sanctuary and great restaurants and shops. Actually the "downtown" area is really just pleasant walk. If you can't ride a bike or walk and have no car, Pierre is likely to drive you. He can't do enough!

    I would recommend this place wholeheartedly, (providing Marise and Pierre are there).
