... on the same level as our friends in South America. The buses are actually old school buses from the US. But you can't really complain when it only costs £2.34 to go the entire width of the country. It costs £4.70 to get from Covent Garden to Leicester Square! San Ignacio was hot, and humid. It's therefore best to find as many activities as you can to get out of the sun and in to water. First up was one that combined both - a trip to the ...

We waited another 2 nights hoping that they may open. They didn't. And it rained more. Every day. As well as the ATM caves (the main draw card) there are other hikes in the nearby Mountain ...
