We stayed at Hotel Ricadi. It's a three-star hotel located at the bottom of the hill of San Antonio; it’s really well located. The staff were really nice and helpful, they let us check in very early in the morning and check out late in the afternoon, after 6pm.We made reservations by phone and as it was a long weekend and it was crowded, they called us the night before to confirm our stay and to ask what time we would like to check in.The hotel has an indoor pool, a perfect option for bad weather, but as the weekend was sunny and warm, we didn’t use it. It also has a pool table, a ping pong table, and a foosball. Although they were really worn out we enjoyed them a lot, but for sure th...Read More

It’s been a year since we walked up to the top to San Antonio’s Hill and I remember it as if it were today. It was so special.We started walking up the hill at five in the afternoon; there still was plenty of sunlight, so we thought we would make it before night. After some time walking, we realized we were lost. We were walking in circles but not up the hill. We immediately approached some locals and asked them for the way up and they advised us to stick to the path since soon it was going to be get dark. They were right, as we were walking up the top of the hill we experienced the most beautiful sunset we had ever experienced. It was a scene difficult to forget. A few minutes lat...Read More
