Woke up and raining - boo! So went back to bed and got up around 8, as Ivo knocked and said it had stopped raining. slowly got ready and set off around 9.30. We needed to make sure we got to boat point by 1 to get a boat back to drake bay. Meant to be 2.5 hour hike but we kept stopping to take photos and chilled on beach for a bit. We preferred it to Corcovado hike as was more of an adventure. Got a bit ratty with each other ...

... Jose, CR, didn't qualify. Luckily as we learned this in advance we had taken steps to manage this situation. More about that when we are safely back in CR.
Then it was a collectivo to David, driven wildly and stopping frequently, a quick change there to a bus (retired US school bus complete with rules intact) and soon we reached Boquete. Our tales of Panama will continue next time but I should say the people here are very friendly thankfully, unlike at the border.
