I spent the holiday in La Ceiba with four of my companeros; Rebecca, Jill, Matt and Iljeen. For hours we sat on the beach and laughed and talked and drank beer. I rented a hotel room on the beach for $7.50. The others shared a room and paid only $3.75 each. What a great day and night we had. No tourists in sight. The beach deserted. We had it all to ourselves; the fantastic restaurants with the fabulous views of the Caribbean waves rolling onto the sand at sunset, the wonderful tropical ambience. There is no better way to spend an American holiday than with friends from home in an exotic locale. We didn’t want it to end. We’re making plans to go to Cayos Cochinos for a long weekend.
