    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!

    My time in David was a quiet one, which was exactly what I was after. I went there for a detox programme and to use the time to catch up with friends via Skype, upload my vast collection of photos from three months on Raleigh expedition and see what's been going on in the world. After leaving Bocas and my Raleigh companions, I bussed across Panama …

    ... the summit clouds started to roll in, the wind picked up and we quickly found ourselves in a blanket of mist that started soaking everything. We had the choice of continuing up to the summit where it would be very exposed or taking a two hour rest at a campsite 30 minutes from the summit that was in the trees. The campsite had a run down shelter with a bunch of planks rotting or missing so we agreed to rest there. Somehow I managed to get an hour of sleep before waking up soaked ...

    ... saw the unmistakable emergence of poo from his backside. He was doing what we’d been warned about way back in Tikal, “defecating on people’s heads”! We got the message and moved on, back to the hotel where we could do what we really wanted—to doze and read in a hammock in the prow of the restaurant where the wind was just enough to keep the mosquitoes at bay. The ride over the divide was hard work and this was our time for replenishment: still another 425 km to Panama ...

    ... try jumping off the cliff face at least once! Erich jumped five times, and we watched an older couple jump off as well. I took a while, and was stuck up there for a good fifteen minutes before Judith (another volunteer at L&F) climbed up and we jumped together. We got some pretty awesome photos and videos with everyone there. After a few hours at the waterfall, we headed to the local hot springs to finish off our day. It was super relaxing, we all paid ...

    ... is a horse, I donate Wilson to the reception desk explaining hesthe new security guard for the refugio. I would have loved to have taken him home, but as you can see from the photo hes pretty big and must weight 4 or 5 kilos. Next time ill make something smaller. Me and mike hunt out the local ice cream parlour before he heads off for his flight. I hang around for a few hours, get confirmation I can do a one way transfer to the san blas islands, so head back to panama city.
