    The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

    This was our first and probably easiest leg! Leaving Panama City was easy and once over the bridge it was one long straight road! As luck would have it, we had chosen the moment to come when they were conducting major roadworks! Lots of bumps and holes! The Panamanians seemed very pleased to see us anyway - lots of hooting and waving ...

    ... without a second glance to throw our bags on the bus.

    Finally, we were sitting in the bus again, a bit bewildered about what just had happened. After a quick fumigation of the bus, our journey continued city of David. Panama is one hour ahead of the rest of Central America so we arrived at 5pm and the city was bustling with people moving around between work, the market stalls, shops and malls. We decided against taking a New York yellow coloured taxi to our hotel, ...

    ... especially it being 8:00 at night. She said $45. We gave her a thumbs up and took it. Shortly after saying yes to $45 she opened the gate. She gave us a key and we were finally in our room. It was the nicest place we had stayed in our whole trip. Clean bathroom, no bugs, a mini fridge, a microwave a flat screen tv, no AC. We definitely didn't need AC. It was just like home in the summer where it's warm during the day but very cool at night. We were very tired after this ...

    ... greens of the protected forest and fields all around us, a smooth paved winding road about 25 km to Gualaca with all the world (this part of it, anyway) laid at our wheels. The air was soft and sweet. This may have been the highlight of the whole trip.

    From Gualaca it became a bit of a slog as our legs were tired from the massive climb the day before. We eventually reached the Pan Am highway and the big rig traffic, which was a bit sad after the beautiful rural ...

It turned out to not be too difficult, if you forgot about the spiders on both sides of the canyon. As we got closer the mist got more and more intense, there was no way to see this waterfall without being soaked! It was worth the work walking up the creek though, we got about 6 feet away from the waterfall and if you ...
