A Travellerspoint blog

Only one week left

Wednesday can be summarized in one word: snorkling... We swam with a few beautiful and colorful schools of fish and also saw the most gorgeous fish of all. It was blue with small polk-a-dot that were literally glowing in the water. We get more and more amazed by the beauty of this place as the days go by. A few people saw big sea turtles but we weren't that lucky - Yet. We will be on Mission: Turtle on our next snorkling day!

Life is a journey and Roatan is our playground! That's why I challenged my fear of height for another once in a lifetime adventure on Thursday. First, let me say that if I would have known that a woman plunged to her death last year doing exactly the same thing in Roatan, I might have back-out.. but we learned about it after we got back. We spent about an hour ziplining through the tree tops of the island. All geared up with a harness, a helmet as thick as a paper bag and work gloves with leather inlays; we were hooked to a cable from our belly buttons as we flew threw the air down the mountain. There was 13 platforms, one as long (if not longer) than 2 football fields and had an amazing view of both the mountain and the ocean. Yes, I felt like my stomach stayed at the top of the hill and I might have disturbed some wild animals with the "holy craaaaaaap!!!" I screamed at the top of my lungs, but the view from up there was worth it all :)
And for the first time that night, the resort's entertainment was fun! They had a "fireshow" which ironically, was performed by a Canadian guy from Vancouver.

Friday was supposed to be another snorkling day but it was really cloudy so mission turtle had to be delayed. We had about 30 minutes of sun in the morning which is when we met Carolina, a photographer from Argentina who took a few pictures of us and put them on a CD for us to take home. My next big splurge will definitely be a good camera. It makes a world of a difference to have memories as close to the real thing as possible.
After a few hours of just chillin' on the beach, we took a water taxi to West end to walk around the village and have a few Monkey La-Las at the Sundowner.

I'm really excited about today!! We are planning to get ta scooter and drive around the island. Fingers crossed the weather will stay this nice!!
