Emilia secured our room and made sure we had a panga to see the whales. The hotel is very basic but clean, comfy and secure.
Breakfast staRts at six a.m. - enough time to eat prior to meeting up for the whale trip. Good coffee, scrambled eggs and tortillas, fruit and beans - all good. Or, oatmeal.
We arrived about 9:30 a.m. Without a panga reservation. Emilia sent us to the dock, where we found a panga with a great guise for several hours of whale watching up close. The whales are amazing.
Enrique - and his father Enrique - were out hosts for the next day of whale watching. The senior Enrique wound up stating out for seven hours to make sure we had an outstanding experience with the whales. You pay less to double up in a panga, but unless I knew I would enjoy the other couple, I'd pay double for the trip,
You come a long way to this place - so it pays to enjoy it. We were in one panga with a rude couple from Italy who would have best been left to themselves. Try to,pick your group.
We had lunch at Alcatraz, which was great. Dinner at Mar y Arenas - at the entrance to town - which was fantastic. It is a really nice room with a great cook. We had Dorado and chicken fajitas - both great. The place has a good bar and they serve a nice glass of wine too. Very friendly and reasonable - most likely the best in town.
