First we we took a bus up to a ranch in the hills and embarked on a little horse back ride. It was loads of fun. We rode along a deserted beach, through some grassland, past some very expensive homes, and ended up at Tabayana Beach for some laying around and snorkeling. It was a really nice day. I'm not one for riding horses normally as I had, in my younger years, an incident of being thrown off one. Since then I've been a bit skittish, but I was glad I overcame it and went anyway. It was great fun
The other thing about Honduras was that the people were so warm, and so welcoming. They are really trying to promote tourism there, and you can tell. Almost every local we came in contact with was telling how great it was to live there, how cheaply one could buy property, and how friendly the island was to non-natives who move in. They even made a point, several times, of telling us there was an international airport on the island and we could get direct flights from parts of the eastern United States. I think we might go back.
