DAY 3  //  SATURDAY

Enjoy optional activities like yoga, an early morning beach run, or a cup of coffee at a local cafe. After breakfast, we’ll engage and explore the theme of resilience with the women entrepreneurs at Entreamigos and do a bit of shopping at the gallery, where they sell their artisan crafts made from recycled materials. Return to the hotel for lunch and a quick change- this afternoon we will be doing a hike to a local beach. Finish the day with a group dinner in town and extend your evening with optional late night drinks with live music.
