Worst travel day

A travel blog entry by gkmadventures


... surf town. We walked around looking for places for about an hour. We found a place but were out of there in about 5mins. She showed us the room and we were just ready to shower and eat so we took it. For paying $60 we felt like we should have paid $15. It was very dark room with an AC that had gaps on each side which if you turned it on the air would just go out both sides. The bathroom wasn't at all clean.

... but t's hard to always see them for the jungle. We've seen bright red birds and bright blue ones, many hummingbirds, and so many kinds of butterflies we can't count them. The howler monkeys also come around every morning although we haven't seen one yet. Really, you should google those guys!
