I spent a long time searching for boutique hotels in the Old Town area and finally settled on the Alfiz hotel, which seemed to be pretty amazing from the pictures and reviews. I had told them prior to arriving that it was our anniversary, so we were hoping for a room upgrade. The hotel definitely delivered. The place did not look like anything special from the outside: in fact, it looked pretty small and we could see that there was a LOT of construction going on in the neighboring buildings. But when we were ushered into the inner courtyard I thought the hotel was extremely beautiful and romantic with a cute little breakfast nook, which served delicious fresh fruit, breads, and egg dishes of all kinds. Despite the construction noises from next door, the Alfiz also had impeccable service, a small pool and rooftop with a view, and some other amenities (like a rather overpowering citrus smell in the lobby and library) that helped to define the hotel as boutique. We loved our room that had two wooden doors that led out to a balcony, as well as a giant bed and bathroom, and even Ipad controlled lights and TV. All of the rooms had a colonial theme so, from a historical viewpoint, I liked that as well.

Trying new food is one of my favorite aspects of traveling, and I also enjoy seeing parts of …
We left the island of Providencia, not by evil catamaran, but by tiny prop engine plane instead. Our flight left really early in the morning and the airport was absolutely tiny. A small propeller plane from San Andres touched down around 8:00 and about twenty passengers got off. Little did they know they had bypassed one of the worst sea crossings …
... angry Caribbean sea from behind giant stone sea walls, through eyes of Moorish inspired Spanish architecture, with brightly coloured flaking paintwork. We were staying in the Getsemani area of the old town, where we dropped our bags and went off to enjoy a passable curry from the first Indian restaurant we had seen for a long time, before falling asleep in our hotel's air conditioned comfort (the first we had encountered in a while as well). The next day our ...
... a result Erin and DayDay got lots of choice shots all with the same two or three kids. An interesting moment occurred when Alyssa (9 year old cutie) charged up to a scantily clad transgender dancer for a picture. After the picture the dancer moved on exposing his backside through his sheer bodysuit. Alyssa's mother turned to me with shock in her eyes.. I gave a shrug with both hands up and a big smile. The parade keeps going on and on with a few local celebrities sprinkled though out. ...
The bad behaviour continues. Jolanda and I only managed two days of school this week but, only one of those days was a hangover day and we did do our homework lol. The other two days we would be in Cali so I donīt feel too bad.
Sunday and Monday were chilled days for us but unfortunately, we have found a friend in American Brett and he ...
