We had just left Cancun from a horrid experience & were looking for a new place to stay. We told Safari, the owner, everything that happened in Cancun. EVERYTHING. She was so apologetic and immediately set us up in a King room - and told us we would always be welcome and safe there. We've gone back every year since April 2010. It's no frills, clean, safe and perfect.
Safari (daughter), Kate (Mom) & baby Dania (granddaughter) are three Canadian women owners of this small- hostel like stay near Playa Norte. Safari has been coming to Isla as a baby herself with her mom & they decided to invest in an existing business in 2009.

When it came time for Jaime and I to do our first jump (we were able to do 3) we were revved up and ready. There was a huge Whale Shark parallel to our boat heading the opposite direction. The captain yelled "Jump!" and ...
... was disappointing, then about 15 minutes later they announced the trip was off due to the weather which was advices from the navy as the weather was about to get worse. Very disappointing but we got the money back we paid on the day however did loose our deposit of about £5 each as we were unable to go any other day. With plans now out of the window we caught the bus out of the hotel zone, which by the way was huge about 18km long! We ...
... unsere Fahrräder nicht mehr aushalten und haben sie deshalb nach immerhin zwei Stunden Tortur zurückgebracht. Wir taten, was uns bei dieser Hitze als einzig legitime Aktivität erschien: am Strand faulenzen. Das war dann auch das Einzige, was wir den restlichen Tag machten. Als wir auf der Fähre zurück zum Festland sassen, genossen wir die kühle Brise und auch wenn der Tag viel zu ...
... a country that seems to have very different values to its surrounding neighbours. Its hard to describe but you feel, as a tourist that you aren't all that safe. Its a poor country with not a large income. Maybe its just a few people who give it a bad rap which is a real shame as I think there are probably some great experiences to be had in Honduras. I would definitely feel more confident if my Spanish was a little better, that way ...
... And they swim along with their huge mouths open filtering the tuna eggs from the water. Third dive and my stomach is struggling. While others are diving we are being tossed around by the waves. we get in and head towards a particularly big one. As we are bobbing in the water, my stomach calls time on the tense game of brinkmanship we have been playing all morning. If you have never been really hungover and seasick, bobbing up and down waves in the middle of the ocean ...
