      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!

      ... we are visiting a coffee plantation in the afternoon and then boarding a couple of different buses to negotiate the 10+ hour journey from this side of the country to the other. It'll be worth it when I see the canal. I have some REALLY great pictures from these tours but I'll have to wait until I get home to upload them :( P.S. I finished the book Alice in Wonderland today. It's terrible, don't read it. For the first time ever I am forced to say, "see the cartoon, it's way ...

      ... sea level, the start of the hike was at 2200m and the summit of the volcano is at 3475m. It is the highest point in Panama and yesterday we were swimming in the ocean so the altitude might have some impact. We started walking at around 00:30. The trail was up a really rough road, luckily the recent rains kept the ground firm as opposed to dusty and soft. It was perfect conditions for setting a blazing pace up the volcano. It was also nice and cool at the starting altitude which ...

      We reached Boca Chica on the Pacific Ocean, a bit wobbly after the steep ups and downs in the last five km of this long cycling day and with barely a pause, we were getting onto a water taxi for the short ride ...

Enroute we found out that the road to Boquete was formerly only 2 lanes, then they decided that when the population exploded because it was voted to one.of the best places to retire to make the road 4 lanes. 80% of the way thru the project they ran out of money so they stopped. Why start a project without the funds to complete it? Because its Panama. My guess is that they only budgeted enough for ...
