Just returned from 10 days at the Iberostar Club Boa Vista if anyone has any questions
Is it ridiculous to think that if we took our 19yr old daughter and her boyfriend they would be happy with the bars and said eve entertainment? They never go to nightclubs but don't want to join the OAPs at the bar! Want a lively bar with some music.
HI, we are going to the same hotel this Saturday and we would like to go to some interesting trip, can you recommend some trips (quads, boat trip, fishing..) Thank you very much for your answer. One more questions about the weather in this time. We are going from 7th september to 15 september and forecast is not good when I check websites. There are many clouds and rainy and storms?
Jackgo, there is a 'disco' which I think runs to about midnight, but not being 'party people' we never ventured into it, likewise the outdoor entertainment theatre. The pool bar usually has something going on like card games and occasionally music and dancing. To be honest, after dinner and a few casual drinks we were usually ready for bed! However I would recommend when sitting out in the evening to wear a lot of heavy duty mosquito repellant!'
Lubos, we did the snorkelling trip and the turtle trip, both of which were excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. The snorkelling trip also took a detour around the local harbour to watch the fishermen bring the huge tuna ashore, and also to a little island to see an old fort. The guide was obviously very proud of Boa Vista and wanted to share his home with us. The taxi ride to the turtles was an excursion of its own, bouncing around on the back of a pick up truck across the rocky desert! (be prepared though, it's an 80 minute drive each way and there are no toilets at the turtle camp!)
Weather wise, it is rainy season, so there will probably be a few periods of rain and cloud, but whilst we were there, although the weather before we left stated rain for the first half of the week, we just a couple of heavy showers, and a fair bit of cloud. However, this takes the edge off the intense heat, but you can still burn, so be careful. Hope that helps, have a great time, I wish I was still there!
Puggles, thanks for the info, that's another hotel to add to the list, still trying to make a choice for Jan 2014!
