Getting here wasn’t too hard. I took the bus for around $10 (apparently better than their crumbling trains) and arrived 3.5 hours later. My hostel is like a little jungle oasis with palm trees and plants everywhere, it’s so green.
I haven’t been doing much, it’s great! I went out the first night I got here with everyone from the hostel. A mix of Canadians, Australians, Americans and Portuguese.
The next day I spent on the beach.
I read all day, it was perfect!
