Today we borrowed bicycles from marina and pedaled down to the town of Puerto Morales. You see Connie posed in front of the leaning lighthouse. Beachside dive town, shops, restuarants etc. Neither of us has ridden a bike in some time and it may be another year or two before we do again!
Had lunch in town on seaside deck, with view of the ocean very nice. Had forgotten the salsa and chips with pico de guao that always comes before the meal. Not common in other central American countries. Mexico definitely has its own flavor. Checked on rental car rates and plan to book a 3 day tour inland to a colonial town and more Mayan ruins, but we are afraid to leave the boat see next.
