The Resort Life

IMG_7173, originally uploaded by ultraclay!.

Typically, I abhor resorts. I didn't fly thousands of miles just so I could sit in a hotel all day. It's not my thing. I travel to explore, to discover new places, foods, booze and so on. I learn a place through osmosis, by wandering it's streets and getting lost, matching up landmarks with the streets on the map. Or something like that.

In any case, this trip wasn't for all that. Tammi and I both needed a time out, not an adventure. We stayed at the Caribe Hilton, a resort stationed across the lagoon from Condado and about a mile away from Old San Juan. The location is sort of in the middle of nowhere, but conversely, closer to more things.

Clearly we didn't spend the whole trip within the confines of the resort the whole time, but we both found our proper perches, Tammi in the hammock and me at the pool bar. I have to admit, that if any single thing justifies the existence of the resort, it is the pool bar. Sitting in the pool or jacuzzi taking in the sun with a beer is the good life, it can't be denied.
