What’s the trip? 3 Days in Algarve, Portugal
This is a 3 day, 2 night trip in Armação de Pêra in the Algarve. It’s for the outdoorsy traveler who has a love for adventures – and an equal appreciation for luxury and relaxation. By spending three offseason days in the Algarve, we had the beaches, caves and the five-star Vilalara Thalassa Resort almost entirely to ourselves. I visited with my boyfriend, and spent three days exploring the waterfront, touring sea caves, relaxing at the hotel and eating all the seafood we could get our hands on.
