Bahia Concha

March 15th, 2010
Day 56.  We weren’t sure what to do when we woke up this morning but got some great advice from our Irish guesthouse owner, Patrick, who has lived in the area for over nine years.  One minibus ride and one MotoTaxi ride later and we arrived at Bahia Concha, a deserted beach with golden sand and azure blue water with no danger of being swept away!  We had a very relaxing day doing very little and recovering after yesterday’s hike.

In the evening, we took a five mile journey on a local bus to the backpacker dropout zone called Taganga, a pleasant fishing village with some of the cheapest diving in the world.  We strolled along the promenade lined with backpacker friendly eateries.  We pitched ourselved at one of the beach bars and watched the sun set while drinking rum and coke with lime (or a Cuba Libre if you’re posh).

    You have a new hat! Very nice. And are those new flip-flops I see? Someone’s gone on quite the spending spree. :-)

    Glad to read that you’re both still enjoying yourselves, and finding more spectacular places in the world to visit.

    Loving the blog updates! Keep them coming.

      Hi Jodie,

      Very observant! Flip flops bought in the Central Market in San Jose. Hat bought in Cartagena. We did a ceremonial throwing away of Safe’s stinky sandals and Annie’s favourite trousers which got split at the bum!

      Hope you’re well! Look forward to seeing you back in Londres … :)
