The beaches we saw were so beautiful. Especially the beach with black sand grains! Also the rock formations on one of the beaches made for an incredible picture- they look like big, polished pebbles! We suddenly came across a waterfall in which we could climb closer too- up and over a couple of massive rocks, and boom, a natural pool. It was amazing, surrounded by the jungle with trees looping over us as we jumped into the pool and made away over the rocks in the water!
The ruins were pretty impressive and from a long, long time ago
After our morning of exploring- literally felt like Dora the Explorer, we managed to charm our way into spending sometime at this Spa. The weather wasn't perfect and so we all went to the supermarkets to buy some chicken, burgers, sausages, drinks, crisps, ver, the lot! This Spa had a gorgeous and massive BBQ area which we were able to use, and Sebastian insisted on making the BBQ which was so cute and his cooking was amazing! So we chilled out by the tables, occasionally helping Sebastian when he would let us, whilst chilling to music. Aisling and I decided to give the swimming pool a go but the water was freeeeeeeezing! Like the typical pools in Spain which look gorgeous but once you touch the freezing water you immediately change your mind.
However, we braved it, went for a quick dip. Our plan was to run into the steam room straight after to warm us up. We did just this, but when we entered the steam room to let out a sigh of relief, this sigh turned into a scream of panic as we realised it wasn't even turned on!
I then went on a walk with Aisling, Stefan and Sebastian around the town, visiting all of the little shops where I bought 2 bracelets. We bumped into the Swedes at a restaurant, and so sat down with them for what we thought would just be a drink, but then we ended up eating their left over rice and chips! Lucky for us!
We had originally planned to go to the Salgados cafe for some dinner a bit later but Aisling took the leap we'd both been eyeing up and ordered some chips. Once it arrived we realised there was no chance of us ever setting foot in the Salfados cafe. The portion of chips was HUGE. The Machu Pichu of chips, seriously massive! Unbelievable, it could have easily have been shared out amongst 5 people, so she begged me to have some, and I ended up going halves with her and we were absolutely stuffed!
