The town itself however is a haven for ex-pats and the relaxed permanent traveller. It's the kind of place you come to for a week and end up staying for the rest of your life. It's right on the beach which while not the best beach for surfing has the most incredible view of sunset and is also overlooked by the second largest Jesus statue in the world.
We arrived on a Thursday night, giving us a perfect amount of time to assimilate before Sunday Funday arrived. We explored the town, went out to one of the nearby beaches to watch a surfing competition and were completely robbed of free Sunday Funday tickets at trivia night (Jesse, Calum and I were anyway. It's a corrupt system).
To summarise probably the best 12 hours of my life, at least of this trip, we started off at Pacha's which involved a game of giant jenga, then to another hostel called Anamar that had a super cool pool (in both senses of the word). Third stop was the well known Naked Tiger hostel just outside of town where we had the perfect view of sunset over the bay before finishing the day/night in a club called Arribas back in town.
