And nice place for lunch and they have movies at night.
Boy, Antiguans sure love fireworks. Fireworks this morning. Fireworks all day. And fireworks into the evening.
And just two days ago we were surrounded by roosters crowing all day long.
We made it from La Libertad to Copan. And then Copan back to Antigua.
In Copan we enjoyed the Mayan ruins, the Macaw Bird Park, a canopy tour, and the Finca El Cisne.
At the Finca, we were treated to horseback riding, touring the coffee and cardamon production, amazing food and hot springs.
After two nights in Antigua, we're heading to the Earth Lodge tomorrow - to stay in a tree house!

Home soon?
So glad you guys are having fun. You look good - happy! Best thing about your trip is that it wasn't a "resort" trip. Looks like you have really been able to enjoy these countries, the locals - and what they have to offer. Can't wait to hear about it and see the rest of the pics. Enjoy these last few days - and safe travels!
