Our group stayed for a week here, and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is the oldest here, but beautifully renovated, and boasts a serene inner patio in the middle. There are birds, fountains, and wifi, and thus is a perfect oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city of Huehue. Much recommended.

While we sat out reading our books some of the little girls selling chocolate approached us again. We declined their offer for "chocolate-okay-maybe-later" and they decided to sit with us for a while. They confiscated our books and tried to read them out loud.

We rushed back to the minivan. The barricade had been lifted and there were dozens of locals surrounding the road and being very selective about who was going to be allowed to go through the detour. This detour though, was hardly a paved road. It was muddier than the ...
... do. The tour started with a hike to some beautiful rock pools, where we had a swim, jumped in and slid down some waterfalls. Later we went to the caves. There were no light fittings and we were all only given one candle each. Most parts of the cave were flooded, so we had to swim through the cold water (still with the candle in one hand :) . Every now and then we found a sharp rock under water with our feet and sometimes the rock you were just walking on ...
... serious off-roading on the rough, bumpy, slow road that wound it's way up, down and around the steep hills to reach Hostal El Portal on the edge of the natural waterpark.
The sun was going down as we finally got to our room. It was a small thatched bungalow perched on he steep banks of the Rió Cahabón with a cold water shower and only 4 hours of electricity in the evenings. Exploring will have to wait for the morning light.
