So when we planned our trip this time, we knew that we would have to go back. Copamarina is a resort in the sense that it is a beautiful place on the Caribbean coast, where the accommodations are lovely, but not fancy. It's the surroundings that are the stars. They have managed to build a place where every room looks out onto the grounds and the Caribbean. Everyone has a porch or patio, and the rooms are small but comfy and just feel relaxing. We were hoping that it had not become fancier since we visited, and we were lucky, as the only thing different was the addition of a children's pool and play area, and a small restaurant (which was a good thing, because the town is a long drive on a curvy, dark road, and when you finally get there, there really isn't much "there" as the town is mostly agriculture).
What did we "do" while in Copamarina? We just vacationed. Swam, walked, sat on our patio, sat on lounge chairs in the water during low tide. Read. Knitted. Laughed. And just enjoyed being in a place that really seems like a paradise.
This is the first post about Copamarina, and the photos are of the views. The next post will be of the plant life there. I think you'll be able to see why we feel it is so special. Enjoy.
