I must confess that I was only talking about the coastal path from Puerto Santiago down to Alcala via Playa Arena. The rock hopping involves the couple of small sections just before Alcala where it is necessary to climb down onto the pebbles where the path doesn't exist. I do believe that it is possible to avoid that by heading inland by the plantations and coming in above the Gran Melia Palace. The clamber down and back up again is not too arduous.
It also looked like Falstaff was volunteering his services as a running mate...
Anywhere from Poblado Marinero is uphill, apart from the marina of course. A steady jog up cardiac hill before continuing along the coastal path past the Barcelo Santiago would be a good run out for a seasoned runner. Not many other places to run locally apart from up the hill to the fire station, down to Varadero and back round the block via Playa Arena?
Whatever happened to lazing in the sun and eating & drinking too much as holiday pastimes? That is all Mrs Grockle wants to do!
