Trip Itinerary


Day 1-7
First day I will welcome you and accommodate you, get to know the group, see if there's anything you need, something more about putting ourselves comfortable. In the end of the day I'll show you around, and visit some places of the Portimão city. And get rest because the next day we're going to do a lot of things and wake up early.


Day 7
This day you will fall in love with Lagos. Lagos is where I grew up and I know every corner of this city like the palm of my hand. This day we will do kayaking and Stand Up Paddle, we'll see the caves along the coast, and see the out-of-this-world cliffs. Probably we'll have lunch with my family for you to experience a Portuguese food and a hilarious Portuguese family 😂 And the rest of the day I'll show you all the secret beaches, see Ponta da Piedade, it's a really known place here in Lagos.


Day 7
Carvoeiro, Boneca Cave, Grutas de Benagil, typical Portuguese food, beautiful beaches, natural pools ... We can see all of this, or decide and do picnic and stay in a secret beach all day long at carvoeiro.


Day 7
And nowwwwwww AFRONATIONNNNNN Happily this event happens right here in Portugal, and you have thousands of people from all over the world coming to Portugal just for this festival. To be able to go to this festival, you have to buy the general ticket, or you don't, if you already have it! A tip: in Afronation groups in Facebook you find a lot of people selling theirs for much low prices, because most of the people can't find accommodation.


Day 7
So I went to this festival last year and what happens is we have all day to do whatever, and In the middle of the afternoon, the festival starts and actually if I'm no wrong, it ends at 2am, then you have ater party's but personally for me I love the fact that 3am I can be already sleeping in my bed, getting rest to be fresh for the next day ahaha


Day 7
Ohhh nooooo, last day 🥲 I really loved the vibe, the people, the dancing all day long, and the fact that it happens at the beach, so I'm sure you'll love this. I know you don't know me yet, but believe when I say, you''ll have the BEST WEEK OF YOUR LIFE


Day 7
Time to say goodbye :( Feel free to rest and leave at the afternoon, and if you decide you want to stay longer, we can also manage that! 🫶🏼 I really hope that at this moment I have already made you fall in love with my land and that you come back 🌀
