Today we wanted something a bit more substantial for breakfast so we went to El Gato Negro, I felt the need to eat something healthy so I had yogurt with fruit and granola and Kat had the breakfast sandwich – with orange juice and coffee it came to $12 and was well worth it.
We decided to head south and spend the day at Playa Coco. We made our way along the dirt road for about 20km when we arrived. There is a good restaurant on the beach where we had some beers before laying out on the beach. The sky was pretty overcast and the beach deserted. At the restaurant they had a sign warning of what to do if stung by a stingray which freaked me out a bit when I went in the water. The waves were pretty gentle and good for swimming. At about 3pm we decided to pack up and head back to SJDS.
Arriving back in town we showered at the hotel and rested a bit before going out for dinner. We wanted to go to El Colibri but they were not open yet so we headed to Iguana for some rum and cokes and watch the sunset. We saw someone we had met the day before who was from Wyoming on a Yoga retreat – she bought us some cuba libres made with the 12 year Flor De Cana – delicious!
After watching another gorgeous sunset we walked to El Colibri – we started with some bruschetta and I ordered beef and chicken kabobs and kat had the filet mignon with gorgonzola sauce – I washed mine down with two beers and Kat had two glasses of sangria – it was hands down the BEST meal we had on the trip - all for $43. Since we had a long drive ahead of us the next day we went back to the hotel and went to sleep early.
