Day fifteen, it was hot and humid in San Juan del Sur, and the power and internet were out for a rolling black out, so we spent the majority of the afternoon playing “get the card in the hat.”
I received my first pedicure, and combined with the manicure, I only paid $27, not including the tip. The hot wax on my feet was a bit of a surprise because I didn’t quite understand what the woman was a asking, but she did a great job.
By evening it was cool enough to hike to the statute of Jesus that overlooks San Juan del Sur.
We climbed up a steep cobblestone road to what some in our group were affectionately calling Big Jesus. The heat was incredibly oppressive, even at five p.m. Thankfully I still made it to the top.
The statute is over 30 meters high.
From the pinnacle we could see the town below and could hear the waves breaking on the shore.
The view was incredible.
We grabbed dinner at a place with live guitar music, compliments of a traveling musician whom we recognized from Costa Rica.
A great end to the day.
