Costa Rican Honeymoon- Day 2
We awoke bright and early on Day 2, ready to explore our resort more.
Breakfast each morning was a buffet with traditional breakfast items(omelets, bacon, pancakes, fruit, cereal, etc), but also some Costa Rican foods (gallo pinto, pumpkin with honey, plantains, and tamales). They also had fresh juices each morning- my favorite was the watermelon juice, so refreshing!
We started our activities with a bike tour around our resort. We met another couple on their honeymoon, and we saw them at several activities throughout the week. We joked that the guys were on the same honeymoon, as the girl's name was also Lauren!
Will and I headed to the pool for some relaxation in the sun! We also decided that 11:00 was the appropriate drinking hour, and hit the bar, trying several different drinks, some from the menu, some we just pointed to what someone else was drinking. My favorite was the Pura Vida, a mix of orange juice, pineapple juice, Costa Rican vodka, and a splash of grenadine, I had too many of those to count! Another favorite was a Costa Rican Tropical...no clue what was in it, but it was blue, yellow, and green and tasted amazing!
After lunch, we went for another walk on the beach, had a splash fight/sand kicking fight in the ocean, laughed as we tried not to get swept away in the waves.
We headed back to the room for a nap, then got ready for dinner. We had a late reservation for dinner (9:15...that's what we got for waiting so long to make reservations), so we headed to the bar to watch the Spurs game. Many other guests joined us at the bar to watch the game, while the bar tenders and resort employees paid attention to the Costa Rican soccer game that was on the second TV. We had to head to dinner before the game was over, but we were able to catch the end of it. The resort had several different restaurants to choose from each night, and all of them were delicious!
After dinner, there was a "Circus Show", with an acrobatic girl, and two jugglers. While it was entertaining, it wasn't my idea of a "circus". After the show, we headed back to our room. The nice thing about our resort was that bars closed between 10:30 and 11, so you got to head to your room early each night!
