Another 12-hour ride, from Guatemala and almost through El Salvador on much flatter land and with surprisingly better roads, landed us on the Pacific Coast, in a small beach town, El Cuco.
We had one day to enjoy the wild waves of the ocean, which provided a surprising challenge when we tried to return to shore (John was having a good time, Deborah less so as the current pushed us toward the rocks..!)
When not swimming, we read and chilled out with the breeze on our cliff-side hotel, 275 steps down to the beach.
Both evenings, we ventured into the small town for fish dinners, and on one occasion, the chance to sing Karaoke (to a cell phone app) and dance with the locals…!
Check out the couple singing Karaoke on our vimeo site:
