Weekend at Pradera Verde + Things to Do

Weekend at Pradera Verde + Things to Do

Weekend at Pradera Verde + Things to Do 

A few weeks ago, I traveled up North and spent the weekend with some of my favorite guys at Pradera Verde. I love that we got our own house (they call it a villa) in a quiet little village where we got to relax and chill after trying out different activities.

It was a nice escape from the busy city life and a great opportunity to try new things (including playing golf, riding a bike and wakeboarding).

I love that we have our own place. It was like playing hose and being inside the Big Brother's House. The villa is spacious and big for the 6 of us. It has 2 bedrooms (with toilets), dining area, living area and kitchen. It has microwave oven and water heater (including the usual complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water).

Things to Do in Pradera Verde

1. Borrow a Bike

The boys borrowed these bicycles which I tried to use. First time to "really" hold and ride a bike. I know, I was not wearing the best outfit. It was kind of hard to learn when you have 5 coaches telling you different things - encouraging, challenging and scaring you at the same time (and Gus is always very protective of me!)

4. Go for a Swim!

Edward and I had a fun time playing at the pool. We were advised to notify the staff 45 minutes before the scheduled swim to start up the wave pool; but we took a dip anyway and just enjoyed the time of having the pool all by ourselves.

5. Eat at the Viewdeck Restaurant

There's no need to go out once you stay in Pradera Verde. Enjoy good food at the Viewdeck Restaurant (last order at 6:00 pm so plan your dinner time accordingly). There's a roaming cart that can take guests to different spots of the property - just hop in and out.
