Before we set off on the boat again, we had another morning workout. This time my gym kit was in the wash so I improvised...with a jumpsuit! #noexcuses
I also attempted a (palm) tree climb but am clearly missing the monkey gene!
I had a delicious watermelon juice
Then we headed out for our half day snorkel to Caye Caulker Marine Reserve (aka "the local reef" - because you can even see the waves breaking on the reef from the island). Our small speedboat whizzed us through the sunshine to the reef.
We made three snorkelling stops...
|Sometimes the water was so shallow!|
...and plenty of fun to be had...
|Teehee - finally, well close enough!|
We tried 'Wish Willy' again but he was still closed. So we headed to Paradiso Cafe. However, after ordering delicious sounding sandwiches, we waiting for over 45 minutes and they still hadn't even started making it!
So we picnic-ed beachside instead. We found some supplies at a small supermarket and the friendly ladies at our 'regular' Ice & Beans donated cutlery for our feast.
Actually a pretty darn yummy lunch!
Then it was dessert time, courtesy of Ice & Beans - shaved ice with three flavours (tutti-frutti, banana and cotton candy).
Followed by rum balls - don't try, they were gross and we donated them to other hungry travellers!
Absolutely recommend this place. Even if Lisa and I did end up having a 'couples massage' for a while #roomatebonding #shegiggledasitriednottoshowhowmuchithurt
After all my knots and muscles had been pummelled, we headed out for dinner.
We excitedly went to La Cubana (yes another Lonely Planet recommendation). They have a large menu, but what we were after was the roast pork! We opted for the BBQ Cuban pork with mash, beans and salad.
We had a 'meal deal' where we also ended up with dessert - cuban cake and chocolate cake.
And cups of tea. All for only 52bz for two - about £16.
Finally the foodies were victorious once more!
