The Land of the Monster Mosquitoes
We’ve basically spent the first 3 days on Roatan doing nothing. Well apart from sitting on the beach and swimming in the sea.
Despite being part of a developing country Roatan is very expensive. It is definitely geared for tourists, and not backpackers, the carribean cruise sort. One meal here costs the same as 3 in Antigua, Guatemala.
We are in the last week of our trip now, a few days left on Roatan and then a few days in the Honduran Highlands before we come home. I could stay away alot longer maybe not on Roatan as I’d be poor and dehydrated. It’s definitely a tropical climate here. It’s 7pm and I’m still sweating.
The mosquitos here are like monsters. I react to bites too so they end up at around a two inch diameter. Not cool. The insects are really loud too, the grass hoppers actually woke me up last night, not to mention when a mango decides to fall off a tree and onto your cabana roof.
Tomorrow we are going to get the water taxi to the postcard beach and hopefully snorkel the reef providing the jelly fish keep to themselves.
