Somehow after dinner our last night in Arenal we end up at a karaoke bar. I’ve never been into karaoke myself but we couldn’t help but check it out since we could hear people singing from our table at dinner.
We get comfortable at the bar and all of the sudden one of the men running karaoke brings over these makeshift maracas (we are talking two red solo cups taped together with some rice inside). He gives them to my friend and I to start shaking to add to the karaoke fun.
We take our maraca job very seriously and make sure to shake them really good for each karaoke singer (our arms were sore the next day, oops). Then we decide we have to go up and sing a song for ourselves – picking the American classic Wagon Wheel by Darius Rucker.
Not going to lie I was nervous and there was maybe only 20 people in the bar max. I do have a bit of stage fright but, once we got going there was no stopping us. By the end I was screaming the lyrics vs. singing. Even if no one enjoyed listening to us it was fun to get outside my comfort zone and sing my little heart out.
It was the perfect way to end our time in Arenal.
