Today was our free day!! We went on many “touristy” adventures like the aquarium, different cities, etc. We also went into the city to all the little shops to buy souvenirs. But first, we visited a cross statue that was near the top of a cliff and took pictures there and after we visited a church and watched a little part of their service. We then went to a huge pier and saw some surfers and the most beautiful water. It was so blue and clear. We also saw sea lions while we were there. They were sitting on gigantic rocks in the ocean.
After, we went to the aquarium and saw starfish, a blow-fish, a seal, a crocodile, etc. Then we went to Salinas, which was basically a city on the edge of the beach. Some crazy things happened there, some of us rode jet skis while others of us got henna tattoos and foot massages. We also ate lunch there at this very good seafood place. Their fried shrimp did not disappoint. After Salinas, we went to Montinita and bought souvenirs for our friends and family. We ate dinner at a funky pizza place in the city, and let’s just say we definitely did not order 10 pizzas….. Finally, we went to a crepe place, which was very delicious! When we got home everyone was exhausted so we had a short little team meeting then everyone went to bed!
