Parque de Agua

We spent Wednesday up in the mountains at Cacheuta Water Park. We had wanted to visit for some time and finally decided to hit the road with some friends.

The park was quite clean. A casual "lazy river" wraps around the main pool with some amazing riverside scenery. Andean foothills embrace the park below with poplar trees outlining the perimeter. Picnic tables and grills are set up under the trees with plenty of room for traditional asados. As for the one water slide, I (Wade) got stuck in the middle and had to scoot myself down. Someone obviously tore down the sign that said, "No Large Gringos".

Here we are in the thermal pools located on the upper level. Several pools are scattered inside the park, all varying in temperature. We just about fell asleep in this one.

And after a long day in the sun, we all returned to our table to feast...well, except for one.
