“The water doesn’t know how old you are.” ― Dara Torres
I’ve started water therapy exercises for my knee. I love the feeling of freedom walking in the water. Although we live on the beach and have a plunge pool, neither are suitable for water therapy exercises. We’ve been going to Moyogalpa to swim and exercise in the Hotel Nicaraus pool. Yesterday, they told us that they were going to drain the pool and repair it. Time to look for another pool close to our house.
Hotel La Punta is our new hot spot located a short five-minute drive from our house at Punta Jesus Maria.
My swim coach and certified pool operator husband cleaned the pool for them.
La Punta Hotel is fantastic. It is completely solar-powered including cable TV, air-conditioned rooms, hot water, and wi-fi. I asked them if they have encountered any problems with their solar-powered hotel. “Not yet, they replied, but the hotel just opened and we haven’t been full.
Rooms start at $50 and go up to $100 depending on the size and the amenities provided. The veranda has cozy chairs and hammocks overlooking the lake. Currently, they offer breakfast, but during the high season, which starts in November, they will open the restaurant.
It is idyllic. They haven’t started marketing La Punta, yet. If you want to make a reservation, you can go to Hotel Nicaraus on Trip Advisor and make reservations for La Punta because they have the same owner.
After an hour of water therapy and a Toña beside the pool, it was time to head home through the tree covered lane, over the jocotes ( kind of like plums) littering the path.
I love the water because it is forgiving and it doesn’t care how old I am. 🙂
We will return tomorrow, La Punta. My knee is responding well to water therapy. And we couldn’t have found a more relaxing and idyllic setting.
