We loaded into Larry's truck and a couple of cars and ventured on the highway in the direction Manzanillo. Once we passed the road to Barra, we turned off the pavement and bumped our way along a small river bed until we reached a little oasis.

Antonio, the owner of the Red Lobster Restaurant, is also owner and operator of a banana plantation. As a side venture he will provide you breakfast at the Red Lobster and then a day of refreshments, swimming and relaxing at this little oasis with a finale consisting of a late lunch of BBQ ribs or fish. You get all of this for 300 pesos.
As you can see by the photos it was a very relaxing day. I felt bad that Linda wasn't with me, and even worse that she was not feeling well.

|As happy as a pig...|
|The pool was 5 feet deep and the water was always moving.|
|They even set up a volleyball net for us!|
|Very cool how bananas grow.|
