Geocache Description:

Duas Barragens TB Country Hotel

Esta cache leva-vos a um local pouco conhecido do Algarve, a montante da Barragem do Arade e a juzante da Barragem do Funcho.
Esta cache nasceu porque andávamos á procura de um local adequado para esconder o container grande que tínhamos connosco e este pareceu-nos o local adequado.
Muito perto há um parque de estacionamento com bancos onde podem descansar e aproveitar a fantástica vista do local antes de partirem para outras caches da zona. Se quiserem fazer um piquenique há 2 parques de merendas na mesma estrada, antes e depois do local da cache.
Como já foi dito, o contentor é grande por isso agradeço que tenham o cuidado de o deixar devidamente escondido. Não tem necessidade de a retirar do local apesar de o puderem fazer. Cuidado para que as pedras não esmaguem o contentor e, apesar de o local ser algo remoto, cuidado com algum muggler eventual principalmente ao fim de semana.
Aproveitem para explorar as redondezas e divirtam-se com as vistas.
Uma vez que o container é grande, a cache é também um TB Hotel.
Podem deixar os TB´s que quiserem e levar os TB´s que quiserem se verificarem que os podem ajudar na sua missão.
 Os TB´s são feitos para circular por isso não há qualquer obrigatoriedade. Tenham em mente que o próximo Geocacher possivelmente irá gostar de encontrar algum TB.

This cache will take you to the interior of Algarve located North from the Arade Water Dam, just before you reach the Funcho water dam and way outside normal tourist routes.
This cache was born because we were looking for a place to hide a large container that was given to us and this seemed like a nice place.
Near the cache there´s a parking lot ad a rest area with benches where you can relax and enjoy the fantastic views of the place. If you brough your own meal there are 2 parks with tables where you can eat. They are located on the same route before and after  the cache spot.
The container is large so please be carefull and leave it properly hidden. There´s no need to remove the container from it´s hidding place, but, if you do, be carefull so the stones don´t crush him. Also, even if this is a remote location there´s always the possibility of a passing by muggler so be carefull with them.
Take your time to explore the area if you want, and  enjoy the fantastic views.
Since the container is large, this cache is also a TB Hotel.
You can leave and pick the TB´s you want if you can help them on their mission. TB´s are made to travel so there´s no obligation about that. Please keep in mind that the next geocacher will probably like to find some TB´s also.
