After about a half hour of driving through the country,
we arrived at our resort:
The Hilton Papagayo.
Once we went through the gate,
it was like we entered a whole other world.
Everything was open and beautiful.
There were lizards walking around,
the sound of the ocean.
As we arrived,
we were all greeted by the happiest people
and given cold fresh eucalyptus face clothes
and delicious juice.
The lobby overlooked most of the main part of the resort
and it was just unbelieveable the beauty of it.
My dad arranged to have a conjoining bungalow
for the 6 of us...
our own private bungalow!!
They were beautiful and ours was in the best spot.
It didn't take long to walk down to the restaurants, pools, bars, and beaches.
The resort had little trucks to transport people wherever they needed to go,
we liked to walk sometimes, but others we needed the shuttle.
When we got to our bungalow,
we were in shock at how nice they were.
The four of us shared one bedroom
and my parents had the other room.
They were both big and spacious,
with fridges, drinks, and our own private deck that
overlooked the ocean.
The first thing we wanted to do was change,
we were in travel clothes that were not appropriate for the heat.
The four of us immediately changed into swim suits
and the 6 of us headed down to the pool and restaurant area for lunch.
The rest of the day was spent exploring and getting
burned at that wonderful swim up bar.
Let me just tell you-
a swim up bar is bitter sweet and here is why:
you can drink all you want and then you have to pee.
Ya end up breaking the seal and having to pee,
in a wet bathing suit a million times!
That is just not fun but when you are drinking
it's more of an adventure.
Also let me warn you that when you are basically
living on the equator,
not even 50 SPF sunblock is going to prevent a burn.
I am still peeling from the burn.
Up next: Our ziplining adventure over waterfalls and through the rainforest.
Ever been somewhere fun and exciting?
