TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Camoes Ponta delgada
We arrived at Hotel Camoes in the early morning after our flight - around 8ish. We were checked in early, given our room keys and even offered breakfast (inclusive) that was still being served. The reception staff was most welcoming, helpful and we felt very comfortable immediatly upon arrival.

Now for the 5 day crossing of the Atlantic in a ship (Another thing to check off our list!)

Raining this morning, but stopped for our first two stops of our shore excursion. Our first stop was at the Antonio Borges Botanical Garden. We saw many tropical plants, and a cool rubber tree. We had a bus full of retirement home escapees that hardly left the bus, so we were always bringing up the rear. Our guide was also having trouble translating english, so she better keep her day job. Anyway, stop two was a pineapple plantation. Lots of pineapples ...

We stay put, it is dark, late for us and it has been a long day. We will see what tomorrow brings. The weather is the big question and will dictate our activity. No matter what we will embrace this island as much as we can.
We are in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on the island of Sao Miguel, hard to believe!
More tomorrow, good night.
