    There were really no walls in this "room" and we had two living areas the "Tea House"/living room area and the bed room equipped with mosquito net, which made sleeping in the jungle feel more safe and very romantic. We woke up each day and looked at the bay through the mosquito net! They deliver (read sneek:)) coffee to your door with home baked goodies each day. AWESOME.


    Ok back to the engagement story...................... TO BE CONITINUED posted pics takes a long time

                  We went down to dinner over looking the Bay of Banderas and had an amazing meal. Maybe the best salad ever. Beets, carrots, mixed greens, walnuts, apple and goat cheese. So good! Followed by a seafood plate with snapper, shrimp and scallops. Verde sauce and yummy broccoli. And tempura banana with kiwi sauce. All paired with excellent local wine.




                  Following dinner one of the ladies that works at Verana came to our table and told us a surprise awaited us in the spa. I was so excited! :) We walked by flashlight to the spa and finally arrived there.


                  What awaited me took my breath away...........




                  There were hundreds of candles all over the spa. It was gorgeous. I cried as soon as we walked in. There was a coconut milk bath poured for us as well as a bottle of Veuve champagne (our favorite) and a fruit plate with cheese.


                  Just as I told Nolan that my heart was ready to explode he excused himself and left me in the spa for a second where just sat and tried to calm down. It was really the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

                  When he came back I hugged and kissed him and thanked him for such an awesome surprise. Little did I know that wasn't the end of the surprises. He was just about to make my heart burst!

                  Before I knew it, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him. Between the tears, I jumped on him and hugged him and said "Yes! Yes thousand times yes!"

                  I don't even think I looked at the ring for the first ten minutes! Just cried and hugged him and jumped around a lot!




                  We spent another 10 days at this resort and extended from our original reservation of 7 days. It is the most unique and extraordinary place on earth. Nothing I have seen can compare, I am without words.


                  An excellent honeymoon location. All the couples that we met there were indeed on their honeymoons and joked with my fiance about what he would do for the honeymoon to outdo the engagement... I guess we will have to see.


                  Fairy Tale to be continued as we plan our wedding sometime next year!
