The most incredible beaches and jungle yet.

Now, imagine your ideal beach....and then book a flight to get your ass here. Set on the coastal area of a National park this place rocks. Jungle comes down to meet golden beaches, clear turquoise water all picture postcard dappled with gigantic boulders that make it seem otherworldly. This place is stunning and due to a hot sweaty walk in to get to it not too busy either. What more could you ask for?

It was quite simply the perfect place to bum, which we did after we did a dirty great stonk up the hill. And after getting totally lost, stumbling over some unsuspecting bats hanging off rocks and dropping our water bottle down a dark hole next to a... 'slow moving creature' that we didn't quite catch sight of so were even more terrified of it, we finally returned to have some quality sunning time on the golden bay. I think the pictures speak for themselves. I only wish we had more time there.

In the jungle, all eyes must be peeled for wildlife. Our sightings consisted of:
  • Poisonous frog (one of those little black and yellow ones that look cute but are deadly...well he looked it anyway!)
  • unsuspecting bats hung off rock
  • crazy big spider with spotty back that hung over our path.
  • caterpillar the size of your index finger, peppermint green with a weird red thorn/horn thing on it bum, very strange
  • rare monkeys x3, very very cute and so inquisitive.
  • crazy big butterflies. the electric blue beauties that are the size of your hands
  • slow moving thing in cave..... bbbrrrrr, shudder.
  • fishes in the sea, the water was so clear that you could just see them!
  • huge millipede!
  • Simon x1
  • Leaf cutter ants like they were going out of fashion
  • Lizards, the colour of the rainbow, well, mainly electric blue and green!
  • Crickets, but no ordinary crickets, crickets that look like they're ready to take over the world. At 20cm long you know when they land on you....and, if you're anything like me, you scream!!!!! 
  • Capibara, (look it up!!!!)
