Mountain to the Sea

A travel blog entry by davidandmaria


We were on the move again, from the highlands of Boquete to the Caribbean island archipelego of Bocas del Toro. We decided to take local buses even though there was a faster albeit more expensive shuttle available, we were in no rush and didn't mind seeing the view from a locals point of view (so to speak) rather than a tourists. Our ride out of Boquete, on the old yellow American school bus, came to a stuttering halt almost immediately due to a cycle race on the ...

Paradise 2

... a very cool activity that can only be found in Brazil and Panama. We couldn't have been happier. So at 1pm we met our guide at the boat and we were off into the stunning turquoise waters. The snorkelling was beautiful but it was nothing on our last outing, but the deep boarding was incredible. The instructor was between us and Stuie and I on each outer sides, we were attached by three long ropes and each of us had like a plastic scoop you held onto. The boat ...
