Day 5: The beach we never found...

After making it through the night without being eaten alive, we made our way back to the resort restaurant for a little breakfast. 

Breakfast was delicious, but that's not what was really worth talking about. We quickly became acquainted with a parrot that hung out in the resort. Quite the clever scavenger, it would hang out and wait till people left the table before swooping in and stealing what was left on their plate. It would have all been well and good if it wasn't for the fact that it kept eat scrambled eggs. There's just something really wrong about that.

After breakfast, we decided to go on a hike. We walked out to the beach and headed south. We walked and talked for hours. One of the locals mentioned that there's a beautiful stretch of beach with white sands, which we were motivated to find. 

Along the way, we came across the balanced rock sculptures, cute little crabs, beaches and rocky shores. After having walked for 2 hours, we decided it was time to turn back. The rain clouds were coming in and we became concerned about getting struck by lightning. We never made it to the beach in our minds eye, but there were certainly lots of beach to see.

Once we got back to the Resort, we decided that the safest bet was to hit the pool. Alin and I had a great time at the pool. I took a bunch of pictures of her posing along the artificial water fall. She's such a ham. 

After a nice dip, we stopped for lunch at about 3:30. We went to this restaurant in town called Cocolores. It was a cute little place in the heart of town that poured out onto the beach.

The food was delicious but the scenery was better. After lunch, we decided to check out what local activities we might do. We walked from agent to agent, finding out what they had available and when. In the end, we decided to skip it and save our money.

For dinner we dined at the resort, but on this evening we made friends with another couple, J.D. and Elisha. They were good people. We ended up staying up quite late just talking the night away. Alin and I both enjoyed it.  Sometime after midnight, we stumbled back to our room and went to bed.
