Travel Blogs from Bocas Town
... time in Bocas, we also watched all the Sunday football (I'm talking American football) games and had $1 beers at a bar right around the corner from our hostel (we did go twice but in our defense we had to watch the Monday night game too).
Some where between the eating and drinking we found a patch of good weather and some time to rent bikes and ride a few miles up the coast to the beach Playa Bluff where we were able to enjoy the nice long strip ...

We chased a pod of about a dozen around for around 1 hour before heading off to the lunch spot and our first snorkelling location. The snorkelling spot was at one of the ends ...
... the ones in Costa Rica as there was lots of coral right up to the shoreline instead of the sandy bottoms we got used to. Christoph and I tried to swim but the surf and the current didn't make it safe so we cut it short.
