There's not much that Michael doesn't know, and you'll meet loads of fellow travellers here.

While waiting for a taxi back, got a lift from Almando, a friendly parejo (sarong) salesman and parttime guide, back to Playa la Galera, a lovely protected crescent of sand really good for swimming as no waves. Nabbed another palm tree to enjoy ...
... in town – the place was heaving! Unfortunately this attracts the touts and their sickening patter - their tone really winds me up and they won’ take “no” for an answer - it just ruins the atmosphere and my enjoyment.
Splashed out $4 on a good healthy fish dinner - seeing all the fishing boats in the bay and the adjacent fish market reassures you it’s likely to be good and fresh.
The water was lovely and not too lumpy, despite the wind, for swimming. Strolling from the hotel along the beach was more challenging as the immediate beach bordering the lagoon was dirty & glass strewn.
