Feb 1: Merida
_Am kayaking to Islas the Monos: two little islands with owler, spider, and white faced monkeys. Don't step on land thou or you would get attacked by an army of them! Just stay on the kajak and look from the water while they follow you ready to fight for their territory.
Afterward we visited Finca Sagrada, the best stable in Ometepe, and had a delicious vegetarian lunch at comedor Margarida. Recommended.
The hike back to El Zopilote took 2hrs even with a ride half way... This island will change very soon with the coming paved road... Nice cabana for the last night at Zopilote $16 total.
Dinner at Comedor Mi Casita in front of the guest house. We waited a hour for the fish and 45 min for fresh fruit juices, but it was worth it.
In the meantime there was full entertainment around: the whole family with friends and neighbors watching cheesy soap operas, dog of any size and shape playing in the yard, ducks with ducklings and a huge pig sniffing around the kitchen and at times trying to approach our table : s, a kitten sitting and pouring on my laps... Priceless
