Last stop Comalapa, La Paz, El Salvador, Saturday, 01 May 2010 7:32pm

It was raining in Juayúa when we checked out of the hostel, so we decided to head down to the coast instead of hanging around town. It was a pleasant drive out. We stopped in La Libertad for a late lunch and then went looking for Playa San Diego. It turned out to be a little tricky to find, since there are buildings built all along the beach. There's beach access between them, though, so we parked and walked through to the beach. It was pleasantly sandy, but the waves were not as huge as they were at the beach we stayed at earlier.

We checked into an airport hotel and dropped off the rental car. Total kilometrage: 1669.

The airport hotel is weird. It's like a little piece of the US. The desk staff greeted us in English and didn't understand when I accidentally used a Spanish word because I couldn't bring the English to mind. The lobby is full of people from the US. There are microwaves in the rooms. They charge for Wifi.
