In times where you can get everything more or less everywhere it is hard to figure out what you really need. Here in Gigante I found a lot of my needs, like the sun everyday, the blue view on the ocean, chilled out music and nice people.
But I also found something I do not want to miss again in my daily life. Organic Coconut Oil! First I bought it because my body lotion was gone. After a long day on the beach it was the best to put on the dry skin. But I also figured out that you can use it as a naturally SPF 4 sunscreen. Even in my middle twenties I start to use it as an anti-aging facial moisturizer, because it is pure and without a lot of industrial input. I started my research about this and find out that coconut oil is useful as a remineralizing Toothpaste, that you can prevent stretch marks during pregnancy and when you mix it with equal parts of sugar you can use it as a smoothing body scrub and as an incredibly intensive natural hair conditioner. Coconut is super healthy and gives you a lot of energy when you use it in the kitchen. Make your own granola or use coconut oil for baking, stir-fries or as a dairy free replacement to butter. I tried it as a coffee creamer and I am so excited. There are hundred more ways to use it and I will try more. I will also take the taste and smell with me home, so it can always remind me on Gigante Bay, the sun and the ocean, the chilled out music and the nice people!

Walk the plank!

 Welcome to Playa Gigante's high season and the beginning of the festivities. December here at Gigante Bay brings in the busy season and the winds, as well as some gentle waves, perfect for beginners. Those offshores are incredibly strong, but at least the rain has tapered off. We’ve got different fish occupying our waters. The fishing charters have started coming ashore with mackerel, as the dorado's are bidding their farewell. This Saturday night we have the Full Moon Party, so get ready for a night of extremity with DJ's taking over the Crobar and not a spare bed in the house. The people have started arriving, and we're offering non-stop rappelling, horse riding tours and fishing tours, and don’t forget $10 Tuesday's Sunset Sails. This place is more alive now than ever.

boozecruiseAs we arrived on the catamaran from the small fish boat taxi, we got our first welcoming drink of pirate juice right away. This would not be the last welcoming drink on this cruise I would experience later on. I settled down in the front of the boat - spreading my legs out in a position that radiates the energy of vacation. I took a look around me; the endless ocean that seemed to calmly rock...Read More
sounds-by-the-seaYou can easily get stuck here at Gigante Bay, this charismatic little fishing village. Like I did. The smooth sound of the ocean takes my mind away. The view on the endless blue lets me fly across time and space. All day and night I could stay and listen to its sound. Personally, I’d say nothing is missing to become peaceful here. But on Wednesday night, while the sun was dressing in beautiful shades of...Read More
