Where I stayed
We are on a lovely island called Utila, its still part of Honduras, but is in the Carribbean sea, and you certainly get that vibe!! I was really surprised when we got here, everywhere else has been dominated by locals, but here its hard to find someone who is from Central America. Its very multi-national, basically its a bit of a haven for long-term travellers who seemed to have settled here for a while. Mostly setting up businesses as scuba instructors or bars and things! Its hard to know what language to speak but English seems to be the best option, interspersed with a little spanish!
I woke up to my first ever summery birthday, it was lovely.
I spent the day with some of the tour group going snorkelling and sunbathing around the island (we had a boat to take us places!).
The snorkelling was really good, saw some lovely purple leaf like coral, and lots of bright electric blue fish and some stripy black and white ones, and some massive turquoise blue ones. Then at one point I looked above water to work out where abouts I was and when I went back under I was surrounded by a shoal of about 500 tiny blue fish, and they kept swimming around where I was for ages!
So after a very chilled out day we went out in the evening for a meal and drinks at this great place called Treetanic (because its a tree house shaped like a boat), and a fun evening was had by all in the group (especially with drinks such as Lizzies Love Punch!)
So all in all a very nice birthday!!
and strange that its so sunny and summery!!
