With deep regret, it is time to move on. Not being able to dive makes it much easier. If you stay somewhere on your travels for more than a few days you get to meet the locals and interact with them. After a week, they become your extended family. But after 10 days in the same place I also have the desire for new places and experiences, which is what makes traveling so incredible. Will saw goodbye to everyone at Gunter's Diving and Skidrow today and catch the 6:20 am ferry to La Ceiba to catch the connecting bus to San Pedro Sula to catch the connecting bus to Copan Ruinas (more amazing Mayan ruins). After a few days there I will head to El Salvador to completely check off Central America from my travel wish list.

"During the Classic period (AD 250-900), the city at Copan Ruinas culturally dominated the region for centuries. The architecture is not as grand as Tikal's but the city produced remarkable sculptures and hieroglyphics. Its culture was so developed, it is often labeled the 'Paris of the Maya world '."
