Finally made it down to the ocean with the family in tow. Takes anywhere from 6-8 hours on the bus which is a bit much, but the kids handled the travelling very well. (Cost of transport there and back...$27 which included a $15 taxi ride) Went to Cojimies, which is where I ended up on my bike last month, just north of the Equator. Empty beach, empty "resort" (5 beach cabins, 1 of which was occupied). Stayed 3 nights at $30 per night. Cooked meals for all of us cost $67. What a deal! Kids ran up and down the beach from dawn to dusk and slept hard as a result. Ramon was scared of the waves, but Carla didn't mind. Temps were 30 something...high 20's at night.
