Day 04 - Tobacco Caye and Snorkeling 101

We had our final breakfast at the trek stop before beginning our two-hour drive towards the coast. Our next destination is Tobacco Caye!

We took a quick pit stop at San Ignacio and checked out the local shops.

Next, we hitched a boat ride to Tobacco Caye.

 On our way to snorkeling lessons!


Phil found a hermit crab in the shallows.

We all went for a night walk on the beach around the island to find nocturnal creatures.
