Yesterday, we hired a fisherman to take us out in his boat to Isla Iguana, a small island about 20 minutes offshore. The island was lovely, with two beaches of talcum powder soft white sand, clear water teeming with fish, a large nesting colony of frigate birds and lots of iguanas. We spent the day exploring the island and swimming and snorkelling in the sea
Today, we took a bus down the coast to La Playita beach, a lovely sheltered bay. Behind the beach is a small hotel where we had a lunch of Pescado, the remains of which got fed to three tame macaws. The hotel owner has a small menagerie of animals which run free in the gardens, including macaws, rheas (large ostrich-like birds), peacocks, a large lizard and a monkey.
