Costa Rica: Day 4 of Secrets Papagayo
After spending a full day at our excursion yesterday, our Facebook travel group - “I Can’t Wait On Friends To Travel,” were looking forward to relaxing at the resort today.
For this trip we chose a room in the “preferred“ category. “Preferred” offers a VIP check-in and check out process, a lounge with premium liquor, accessibility into the “Sea Grill” restaurant at breakfast and lunch, and complimentary cabana rentals. Preferred status is not necessary to have a great experience here, but it certainly helps.
We started our day lounging on the cabanas. The resort had a great team making sure that our drinks were always filled and our plates always had fresh snacks. The resort truly spoiled us. The service was absolutely incredible!
After the sun heated up, the ladies headed to the pool and we enjoyed some girl time. We had great music, water aerobics, and shots at the pool bar.
Then, the entire group went on a sunset hike . We hiked to the end of the resort and climbed to one of its highest mountains. This hike was much more strenuous than I imagined that it would be. I had to stop half way up to catch my breath, but when we got to the top it was so worth it. 😯 The view was phenomenal. 🤩
That night we had dinner at the Italian restaurant, Portofino. The food was delicious, but we were so tired from being in the sun all day that we called it an early night and passed out as soon as we left the restaurant.
Stay tuned for day 5, we went jet skiing, met some hairy friends, and spent our last night together.
