Cerro Punta has become one of our favorite places to go for a drive. It's so beautiful up there! It's amazing to see the farmers working their fields up so high and on such steep hillsides. We've spent quite a bit of time touring around up there and finding fun things to do.
We stopped at Hotel Bambito one weekend afternoon because you can wander the grounds there. The kids had a blast in their ginormous bouncy castle (which we later found out was for hotel guests only!). We were glad they got a chance before we found that out! March 18, 2018
The ponds there have fish in them and there are ducks hanging out waiting for treats, even if you don't have any.
This one duck decided he really like us - mostly Bailey. I'm beginning to think she's the animal whisperer. Doesn't matter where we go she has animals following her around. If we walk to town, we leave town with at least 4 dogs on our heels. I couldn't resist taking pictures of this duck! He has so much personality.
We ran into a couple of crazy people there! Honest, they weren't with us.....
The kids liked climbing around on this horse with it's covered wagon.
We're not totally sure what the Flintstones are doing there but why not pose with them too?
We couldn't get Keiran or Bailey to pose in the heart of flowers but the rest of us had fun with it.
Thankfully, we still have a couple of little ones who will pose for pictures.
No trip up is complete without a stop by Haras Cerro Punta, a stud farm for thoroughbred race horses. The best is when they have the foals and mamas in the field by the road. We could stand and watch them for hours. The girls pick handfuls of clover and try to get them to come over and eat from their hand. It's hard not to go crazy with the pictures because the background is so perfect and the horses are such fun to photograph in that setting.
We have to stop at 'The Wandering Sloth' on the way back down. Bailey needs french fries!!!!
