Where I stayed
I left Punta Gorda via one of the most relaxed immigration offices (only the Spain/Gibraltar beats it) and took a water taxi to Puerto Barrios in Guatemala. From Puerto Barrios, I was taxied to the Honduran border with a Slovenian I first met at the hostel in Caye Caulker, and a local with a garish cowboy hat. Once across the border, it was chicken bus to Puerto Cortes and then a hectic shuttle bus to San Pedro Sula. It turns out the bus station is nowhere near the centre of town so I had to get a taxi to the hotel.
The hotel was only a few block from the town centre and the park, so I thought I would venture out while there was still some daylight and check it out.
Rubbish and filth. Unfortunately that pretty much sums up the centre of SPS. I walked around one block and that was enough. It's hardly a tourist destination and much less one where foreign girls such as myself go walking around by themselves. I made it to McDonald's and then back to the hotel. I didn't even have the will to try and find decent food!!
