This hotel/hostel is definitely one of the best we've ever been in. The rooms are extremely tidy and spacious and the beds are pretty good as well.

We have some amazing video footage of this abuelo next to us embracing Paul and dancing around an upended chair in jubilation over the third goal. We may ...

... re supposed to just jump! When we ended up watching the video, it was ridiculous how I jumped because I crouched down looking like I was ready to back out then I bolted into the air into my death. The view, I believe, will be forever etched in my mind. Just the feeling of falling, just the feeling of not having control of where you're are just going down. I swear, I had nightmares about it last night. It was the highest bungee jump in all of Latin ...
