El Zopilote

A very moist paradise

semi-overcast 25 °C

We came for the pizza. But there was no pizza.


We came for the volcanoes. But they were shrouded in mist.


We came for the full moon party. But we were a week late.


Instead, we got a lovely private cabana, tons of different butterflies, and some very damp clothes.


Here's a short video tour of our lonely waterworld for the last four days. Note: this was taken during a few dry minutes.

(We're now off the island and drying our clothes out in Granada. More info to come, plus some more videos and photos from the island thanks to Liz.)

At first, was bummed by the lack of pizza; however, after watching the video, more than made up for by the beauty, the apparent solitude, and the various ecosystems on the island. Weather is always fickle wherever one is. What an incredible adventure that you'll never forget. Looking forward to dry clothes and whatever comes next.

Dang, I wanted to see the composting toilet and the Japanese shower! What a wonderful place!
