This page is dedicated to the mistakes I have made along the trip.

1.)  Eating Seafood (especially ceviche) from a roadside stand. Yup, seafood can carry cholera.

2.)  Getting stuck in the sand.

My shovel wasn’t enough.  Hiking back to the road and then 10km to the closest town to find someone with a 4×4 Toyota did the trick.

3.)  Not tying up the boat.

There’s nothing like waking up and seeing your boat across the bay.  The water was very cold, especially that deep.  The water was barely even warm enough to enjoy during the afternoons in the shallow beach areas.  I’m glad I have enough kayak experience to board the kayak in the water and paddle back to shore instead of having to swim with it in tow.
