Chill or Thrill
This is your last full day. You can choose to chill out today by enjoying some restaurants and the town. Or you can chase another thrill like bungee jumping or Canoeing. Make sure you have time to pack your luggage so you don’t feel rushed when it’s time to check out in the morning.
