Sounds like you are having quite an adventure...though I am glad you got off that boat safely and to a hotel (even if it was a bit skanky...we have that to look forward to!).
We have just been to rio dulce and are heading to tikal tomorrow...really excited about that.
Just thought we would say a wee hello and hope that you meet your sister ok and have a fab time in honduras...have a drink for us in the bay islands, the place we never got to.....
big hug from both of us
Suzy and Ian xx
