Where I stayed

Getting here was a bit of an ordeal - they decided at the border to close it on this particular day from 1am to 5am and we arrived at 1.30am. You would have thought the international bus company would know this sort of thing... our error, all new to them too.

As a result we felt it was high time to splash out and treat ourselves to a holiday from all this arduous backpacking (and because the backpackers we went to didn`t have a double available!). Walking along the beach to town we saw a place we thought would be way up but worth asking at least. Both intuitions turned out to be correct. They want $120 a night. But before we`d walked straight back the way we`d come we`d managed to knock the price down by 66%. Now it seems like a bargain. Best pool and poolside view on the beach, lust rooms and all with free yoga and meditation classes thrown in. Check out the pics!

All good? Not quite. While I came away now being able to touch my toes again, Marleen came away with either salmonella or E. Coli from the one time we left the resort to eat in town. High fever and an overnight at the doctor kinda took the chilling out right out of the place. Can`t win them all unfortunately.

Please to report Marleen is once again travel fit and its off the Chiclayo for some culture.
