    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!

    ... clear sky accompanied by a cool island breeze. I really can't imagine a place more idyllic than where we spent our day, and I read a lot of travel magazines. I spent hours vegging out in a hammock, we had beers and cocktails brought to us whenever we wished, we snorkeled over beautiful reefs and shared a big stretch of sand with no more than 25 people at any one time. I'm shaking my head in disbelief at how great today was; it just doesn't get any better than ...

    ... cover it all. There is the on board advisor, the maintenance of the canal, the line handlers on the side of the canal, running the launches to deliver and pick up the advisors, etc. The cost of a boat over 50 feet is about $1300. Apparently the big ships subsidise the small yachts. Also compulsory on the boat was a sun shade and bottled water for the advisor.

    Our day of the climb started with a breakfast at the greasy spoon nearby, which opened at 6:30 and had fresh hojaldres (fried puffed bread), scrambled eggs, and boiled yucca (like a starchy potato), as well as mugs of thin oatmeal and coffee. There hasn’t been much in the way of roadside refreshment so far in Panama, so we have to take advantage of ...

We ran into a snag with having to show our onward ticket. We have a ticket, but unfortunately Erich's iPad had died, and with no way to charge it we had no way to prove our tickets. So off we ran to the Internet cafe to print off our proof, and with the help of our bus driver, ...

    No pictures on this one, sorry folks! I can't get my camera out and take photos of my fellow colectivo travellers or of the people who picked us up as I think it would be seen as quite rude or crazy!

    I just had to simply get this one written down as an experience I hope not to forget.
