I woke up to watch the Spurs V Man U match at 6am before we headed to Wendy's for a quick breakfast which seems impossible to do in Central America! They said 10 mins but 30 mins later we were just getting our food! Still we gobbled it down and then rushed back to the hotel to jump in the cab to the airport. It's only about 10 minutes to Placencia airport and as expected was a tiny local airport and we had plenty of time in the. So 15 minutes ahead of schedule we boarded our dinky plane ...
... walked along quite a bit of the main beach road & beach and found a spot to park up for the day - a double lounger and umbrella with bar and restaurant 10m away. We read our books, a few beers, cocktails and lunch. The sea was pretty rough so just a paddle today. Light rain set in so we headed home for a night in.

Then it was a 750m walk in the burning sun down large path to the entrance gate. Turns out I could have take the bike this last part too! Oh well. The entrance fee was MX69 (£3.15) - not too bad! These Mayan ruins are thought to have been a port town and built in 1200. The ...
... known as the gateway to heaven, unfortunately on that day the wind was up so the waters were choppy so the final lagoon was not smooth and clear and looking heavenly. Not to worry. We went in the boat across this last lagoon and turned the engine off and floated to watch manatee surface, we saw several before making our way down the last natural canal to the sea. The Caribbean coast was beautiful, everyone got out of the boat, had a wander along the sand, watched ...
