Paqueta Island visit

Standard

Today kids and I ventured out again and went with some awesome friends to Paqueta Island. It’s about 1 hour 20min  ferry ride from the city center to the Island.

And the price was a shocker to me…with nice looking ferry too. It cost us $2.50 per person for both in and out and kids under 6yrs don’t get to pay. So it really was a low cost, but super fun activity for me and my kids.

When we arrived there, first thing we noticed is that there are no cars.  horse and tricycle and bicycle are their form of transportation….

So we first walked around and had a pretty tasty lunch and after we decided to have acai for dessert…and oh my…acai made right with caramel was the bomb…it was sweet and nutty and yummy…

After our acai experience we decided time to rent some bikes and ride around the whole Island.

We spent 1 hour 30min  riding our bikes around the whole island and it was really an awesome experience for me and my kids.  Watching them ride and stop and pose for a picture and making friends and just living to the fullest was very rewarding for me as their mother.

Thanks to our awesome friend Danilo and Leslie for inviting us to have this amazing experience with them.

Here are some pitures of our day in Paqueta Island…

Had to kiss and make a wish at the Baobab tree on the Island…my wish was for my kids to grow up and know that I gave them my all and the best way I know how to be a mother to them. And have them feel  my love for me. This was my wish.
