It’s been a long day. We woke up extra early this morning so we could hit the road. As soon as we got up, we grabbed our bags and packed up the bus. Once we did a head count and were all packed in, we went down for breakfast. It wasn’t too much, just some toast and mixed fruit. Something quick so we could start driving. It took about an hour or so to get down to the beach, nothing too long. As soon as we reached our destination, surfing school commenced. We were given our surf shirts, and taught how to properly get up on a board to catch a wave. We all practiced a couple of times, then were separated to 2 groups, just because all of us at once would never work. We were all given a couple turns each to ride some waves, and everyone seemed to really enjoy it! We all might have wiped out, got smacked by a wave while swimming out, or even struggled to get up a couple times, but it was all worth it!
After our surfing class, we hit the road to our next stay: the Punta Leona. It was going to take a while to get up there, so we stopped for lunch out at an ocean view authentic Costa Rican restaurant. We were able to choose from a small menu, some food items including fajitas, nachos, and seafood. After our settling lunch, we got back on the road.
The beauty of the resort is crazy. Theres so much to do in the so little time that we have. Theres a beach, mini golfing, foosball, and a couple pools! Also, our rooms are separated by country. Some countries were Jamaica and Honduras, or at least those were the two that were taken by us.
For dinner, it was a large buffet! There were all kinds of vegetables, meats, pastas, and a large variety of deserts. That dinner was a great way to call an end to our night. It sucks were only able to stay for one night.
