We met up at dawn and spent the morning surfing at Encuentro where the waves were not the best but the girls were all smiles.
After breakfast we headed our way East for Playa Grande. We checked the surf, enjoyed a Pina Colada or two, and snapped a few shots around the tide pools.
To end the day we made our way to Lagoon DuDu, which is a beautiful park with crystal clear fresh water lagoons. One of the lagoons water goes down almost 200 feet and has a zip line with a 30 ft drop to enter.
