Happy New Year to all.
After two nights in the ultimate 70s hotel in Puerto la Cruz, we headed to our first tropical beach retreat in Mochima national park.
We are feeling much more chilled and pro-Venezuela, after four days of total relaxation.
A typical day includes: delicious breakfast, followed by a boat trip to a nearby deserted island, where you are left with chairs, tables, snorkels and sufficient quantities of rum and beer to set up camp under the palm trees. About 1, the boat returns with a hot lunch, returning later to pick you up again..
Not surprisingly New Year was very tranquil, we were the last up at 1am.
Now feeling very sunburnt and are mid-journey to the next exotic beach location.
