Blue Caves, Zakynthos

September 21, 2014


DSC08309Kool-Aid. Blue flavored Kool-Aid to be exact.  I can’t help it. It’s all that comes to mind when I think about the Blue Caves of Zakynthos.  The last time I saw water this color blue, I was 7 years old.  Meticulously mixing 1 part water to 5 parts sugar to 2 parts blue flavored Kool-Aid mix for that perfect summertime thirst quencher! That sense of nostalgia and an excitement for the unknown, sent this postcard worthy adventure right to the top of my Zante ‘Must Do’ list!

 Just another unbelievable day in Zante. Wake me up when it’s all over!

    I’m visiting Zakinthos this year! Your photos have really convinced me. Which boat/tour company did you book the boat trip with??

      Hello Carolyn! I’m beyond excited that you’re going to experience this wonderful treasure. We literally drove to Porto Vromi and bartered our way into a cheaper boat ride with a random fisherman. There are several options there. Hope this helps!

    What would you say is the price range to rent a boat?

      Hello! Hmmmmm, Im not sure. I can’t remember what we paid as we split the cost.
