So it's the last day! Unbelievable huh? Can't believe I'm actually leaving. Didn't do much today just went to a really pretty black sand beach (Ocotal) and baked myself for a few hours. I had two options to get back to San Jose for my flight tomorrow which is at 12:45pm. I could leave this afternoon at 2, which means I'd get into San Jose for about 6pm but would mean I'd have a pretty shit last day. OR I could take a risk and get the bus tomorrow at 4am and get in to San Jose between 9 & 10am, hopefully. Can you guess which one i've gone for? Yes the risky one. Technically it's doable but if anything happens like traffic I'm potentially fucked. I have to check in at 10:45 so I have maybe an hour to play with if it's on time an the airport is half an hour from San Jose. Oh dear I'm totally going to miss my flight aren't I. Well it's too late now as it's nearly 5pm and in still in Playa Coco. I have a plan though which is make the bus stop near the airport thus saving myself an hours journey time. Hopefully I can do that...

So as I don't have much to report here were some highlights from my trip:

Cozumel Island: (Mexico)
So beautiful, I wish I'd had some more time here to explore. The snorkelling was so good here!

Lago di Atitlan: (Guatemala)
Lakes, volcanoes, pretty villages. What more could you want.

Rio Dulce/staying at the Finca Tatin: (Guatemala)
Could have easily have stayed here for longer. Cool location, great staff, family dinners, nature. Wonderful place.

Roatan: (Honduras)
Ah Roatan. I more than loved you. Incredible diving with Coconut Tree Divers, great staff. Watching the olympics, beautiful beaches and awesome snorkelling offshore.

Copan: (Honduras)
By far my favourite ruin on my trip. Magical.

Nicaragua where I climbed a volcano and saw lava, tried to surf and mostly just hung out with a group of awesome people and had many, many fun times.

Costa Rica:
Poor Costa Rica, I was meant to see so much of you and saw so little. I liked what I saw though. Playa Coco, good beaches and awesome diving. Lots of wildlife in between and my favourite Central American city (San Jose) of my trip. And course the sloths. Nuff said.

Panama I'll be back to you but I throughly enjoyed Bocas del Toro.

So tomorrow will be my last blog for this adventure and will more than likely feature what will be a horrendous travel day. Hope you've all enjoyed it anyway and thanks for actually reading it. Lots of love xxx
