... in line, so he would eat, then run up to the front only to stop and eat again. We rode through the rolling valleys, saw some amazing views, and after an hour and a half reached the owners little farm. They made us a typical lunch of chicken, rice, and beans, and showed us around their farm a bit. We got to try some more sugar cane juice as well as hang out with a baby cow only a ...

In the city of David

A travel blog entry by jim.coates


The end of chic. Diving into Panama takes one back into the real world with a bang. The border procedures were chaotic, but one expects this. This city of David has nothing of Bethlehem about it. Spread out at the intersection of the Panamerican Highway and the main roads into the mountains or down to the coast, the town is tough and disorganized. Nothing colonial here -- strictly 1973 -- the garish signs and strip malls and traffic point to capitalism ...

Small town, BIG adventures!

A travel blog entry by pric5457


... we gave our muscles a break and went on a coffee tour. The plantation was small, but it is home to Boquete's best coffee! My Starbucks knowledge came in handy at some points, but I also learned that even this trained barista could learn a thing or two! We had a great time picking and tasting the fruit, tasting the final product and watching them roast the beans! We also learned the best ways to brew coffee for your health and for flavor. ...

A trip up to the Costa Rican border

Santa Catalina to David, Chiriqui

A travel blog entry by pkg

... keep up with overtakes and then I stay a 100m or so behind them.

David is the capital of the Chiriqui region and much like a medium size US town in that it laid out in a north/south and east/west grid pattern - there are few tall buildings. Our hotel is new and not on the GPS but we know which intersection it is supposed to be on but the usual lack of signs in Panama have us driving in circles for a while before gradually ...

    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.
