          The gardens, pool and friendly staff make this a great place to relax. Buses to David entre and other destinations, including Frontera and a minute away. If staying for longer, book just one night online though, as thy charge more!

          Cool jungle courtyard

          Very basic private rooms. The jungle courtyard and pool out the back is cool, as is the simple jungle bar and $1 beers. Would stay here again for the outdoors areas but the room and bathrooms were nothing special. The cheap seafood restaurant across the road from the hostel was fantastic, try the whole fish!

          Today actually began last night at 11 pm trying to get on our first bus to David, Panama from Panama City. We got to the Albrook bus terminal with plenty of time to figure our way around and attempt Spanish to people who clearly did not care if we caught the bus or not. This overnight bus was hell, to say the least. It was 6 hours of nonstop bumps …

          The Twilight Zone and, Later, Heaven on Earth

Anyone that knows Brittany and her aversion to demanding physical activity will agree that entrance to the Twilight Zone is the only logical and possible explanation for such an event. My legs were trembling a little towards the end, and we were all pretty worn out on the bus ride home. We recharged a little bit with an amazing dessert of strawberries covered in a special cream called "natilla", and then ...

          ... We waited for about two hours before the van finally showed up. We drove for about an hour before stopping at a road side restaurant with a Chinese buffet for lunch. At least there was no waiting for food. I had chow mien noodles and a piece of fried chicken that was pretty good. After lunch we were back on the road for the remaining 3 hours to Boquete. Our van had a video screen in it and Victor had a DVD with music videos on it so we watched ...

We mulled it over for a day and by nightfall we got up the guts to call our host and back out. It was an awkward situation, but once we were free from that obligation, we realised that we had opened ourselves up a whole week of free time in this nature/coffee/relaxation paradise. We had ...
