As you all remember El Dia De Coconut it upon us. The day of the year when no matter where you are or how cold it is you drink out of coconuts to celebrate the finer weather of the past and future. This El Dia De Coconut is a special one for us, it will be our first wedding anniversary.
We decided this year we would celebrate our anniversary on the beaches of Colombia. We will be flying from here in PDX to LAX onto Panama City, Panama and then finally landing in Cartegena Colombia at 4:20pm the next day. We are going to spend our first two days in Cartegena, at hopefully a nice hotel, the Arsenal Hotel. We are then going to head up to the Parque National Natural Tayrona where we will be spending the night in deluxe hammocks on the beach. This at least is the plan, but it may be too hot so we may opt for a hotel in nearby Santa Marta.
After the park we will be heading back to Cartegena to catch a plane out to San Andres Island on Feb 20, where we plan to catch another small plane over to Providencia. Providencia is an even smaller island where we plan to scuba, snorkel. snack, and catch up on some hammock time. We are planning to stay at a small two bedroom guest house on an even smaller island called Santa Catalina.
I will update as soon as possible but we are planning to unplug our lives as best we can for two weeks.
Happy El Dia De Coconut,
Mat and Kellie
