We arrived at our resort, Princessa de Peñasco, mid-afternoon and checked out our room. It was a 2 bedroom 2 bath ground floor unit. The condo has everything you need, soft beds, comfy couches, cable, and DVD player, along with a full kitchen with dishes and utensils and a washer and dryer. (You can check out my live video HERE) We brought down a babysitter with us to watch the kids while my husband and I enjoyed our planned activities with the group (She was amazing with the kids and even spoke Spanish, she was perfect for a vacation babysitter, and I can't wait to use her again now that we are home. My daughter said she was the best babysitter ever! If you would like her information please don't hesitate to let me know). We got one room, the babysitter got her own room, and the kids got the living room. The condo is perfect for 2 small families to share. Our back door opened to a patio with comfortable lounge chairs and a spectacular view of the ocean. After unpacking, we changed into our swimsuits and walked 200 feet to the beach. My kids were in heaven! They got a little bit of their love for the beach from me. My son ran straight to the water and enjoyed running in the small waves. My daughter loved making sand angels, building castles and tunnels, and building her sea shell collection. My baby just loved the feeling of his hand and feet in the warm sand.
It was almost time for my husband and I to head out so we got the kids and babysitter dinner at the on-site restaurant, Colin’s Cantina. The nachos and quesadillas were a big hit. Be prepared to wait for service. That goes for pretty much everywhere here. It’s not like America, things are a little more relaxed and laid back.
