Fancied a full day at the beach today so at 11am we walked the 2 minutes and found a good spot. Rented a couple of sun loungers and shade for a tiny amount for the whole day and some body boards for an hour.

The waves were huge! We paddled out to try and surf the waves and wiped out every time! It was impossible and every time I got close I got smacked and ended up flipped upside down on the sea bed, semi drowning, struggling to reach the surface. Probably for the best that I haven't attempted surfing yet!

For the rest of the day I chose to do the less strenuous option and relax in the shade. It was far too hot to sit in the sun as I would have burned in 10 minutes. Found a really cool bar on the beach for some lunch and more relaxing. More tacos and beer. We stayed at the beach until 5pm when it started to rain. Dave had spent about half the day in the sea and was complaining that he couldn't hear by the end of the day.

Time for dinner so we paid a visit to the same restaurant as yesterday. Terrible service and barely passable food. One comedy moment happened when Dave mistook a couple of girls who walked in for someone else we had met and proceeded to ask them what they had been up to. Chatted away oblivious for a few minutes before whispering to me, "It's not them is it?"

At about 11pm we all walked off from the hostel to a bar nearby. Seems Monday is THE day to party as it was completely packed. Full to the rafters, mainly gringos, but the drinks were cheap and the music bad. Stayed around for a couple of drinks but it was so damn hot and loud that I wanted to leave.
