Day 18 - Drive/ferry to Roatan

We drove cross-country today, to the northern town of La Ceiba on the Caribbean coast.
From here we tool a ferry across to the beautiful Bay Islands, home to some of the
best diving and snorkelling in the Caribbean.
The 3 islands lying some 50km off the Honduran coast are a marine wonderland,
with reefs that teem with life.
