Where I stayed
Hotel El Silencio Del Campo
Our frown turned upside down when we saw the hot spring at our hotel. We realized it was the perfect weather to sit in the hot water and have the cold rain drizzle down your face.
For those of you who hate cheesy moments, this is your final warning before I begin the most romanic day/night ever.....
After soaking in the hot springs all afternoon, we decided to book a couples massage package for later in the evening. Yes, Andy went along with it
Around 6pm, night had already set in and it was still drizzling. We were escorted to a little path along the back of the hot springs. To my surprise there was two massage beds setup in a white canopy glowing with candles and white sheer fabric.
We were then gently smoothered with warm volcano mud and then wrapped in plastic/hot towel and left to bake to perfection! Hee hee...just kidding.
Although we were mummified for a good ten minutes before being unwrapped like a corn tamale. We were then given towels and led to a private outdoor hot spring waterfall to shower off our baked mud. Why is it so fun to shower in the nude outside? And why don't we do it more often!
Back into the tent we went for our massage and our mud facial! All the while, I heard nothing else but the hypnotic rain dripping down
After that terrible ordeal, we just had to go back into the empty hot spring and sit there in the rain drinking our freshly made pina coladas.
Later we went into town to have dinner Don Rufinos. I had a seafood platter with lobster, crab, shrimps, langoustines, fish, scallops, mussels, clams, and octopus.... Andy had a simple spinach ravioli dinner.
Oh why is life so cruel :D
