Where I stayed
I vaguely remember, just keeping that tucked away only for keeping track of how many days we have left on this wonderful island. Our days start the same, myself up before Carla, swaying in the hammock on our deck, watching all the wildlife come alive in the morning. Besides the many lizards and iguanas, there are hundreds of butterflies, dragonflies, hornbills , eagles,, and yes, Mosquitos. But not as many as the islands were Christine and i camped. They were the worst there. Always put your repellent on, especially in the morning and at dusk, thats their favorite time of day
After my morning swing in my hammock, carla awakes and its off to breakfast. The food here is incredible. They even have homemade bread and jam, which is now officially off my list of things im allowing myself to eat. Ive been on vacation a while, and since im unable to practice my daily yoga class, and im wearing a bathing suit everyday i really have to watch what im eating. But im sure not denying myself. Fresh fruit and juice, fresh vegetables and fresh fish, prawns and squid brought in dally by the local fisherman... Im eating better than i ever could at home, for a fraction of the price.
The rest of our days are filled with big decisions like where on the beach should we spend the day, are you going to snorkel today Carla? What do you think you want to have for lunch? How about dinner? Lets be sure to be out of the shower by sunset. Its true vacation life here.
Lazy beach is on a private secluded beach. The property is stunning, with well built bungalows and great verandas with hammocks for two , and sturdy walls to keep out most critters. Except for the geckos.. They are welcome anytime to do the cleaning of all the tiny bugs that make it thru the cracks in the bamboo roof and walls.
We had a big adventure the other day as we decided to go to the other side of the island. A twenty minute walk thru the jungle would take us to another beach. The walk was pretty, and we were the only ones making the trek at the time. With only wearing sandals on my feet , knowing that the jungle also meant the possibility of sightings of monkeys and snakes, so we walked briskly, being sure to stomp with our steps on the leaves covering the path, scaring away anything to cross our way. . The other beach was long and white, but we quickly realized that after the sighting of a couple of speedboats and younger tourists equaled more noise, booze buckets and crowds
"Really??? Really???" She asks nervously as she points her silver iPhone directly at them while filming .. I tell her to keep moving as one quickly makes his way down from the rustling tree above. We move on with no close monkey encounters.
Lazy Beach is very special, , and in all of my travels, its very rare to find a place that has it all. The chic bungalows, the amazing clean white sand beach, the lack of crowds, great food with a restaurant with cool atmosphere, super friendly owners and staff.... This place has all of it. It just takes a while to reach it, but thats exactly what keeps it this way.
