Wednesday 18th December, 11:30pm

I am sitting in the open air lounge of the Hotel Olas in YET ANOTHER TROPICAL PARADISE. The heavy rain on the corrugated iron roof may sound alarming, but the ceiling fan keeps the temperature and mozies at bay.

We left San Jose at 6am this morning less than impressed with the …

So after leaving Panama City, a 10 hr bus ride from hell, and seeing Bocas del Toro town, I had just about giving up on Panama. Most of the locals met so far have generally been rude and who ever told me that you could make it around panama easy without knowing much Spanish is a lier face... And then I get on a small boat from Bocas town to the island of Bastimentos. Going to the island you can either land on the south ...

... and live musicians that came by. It was reggae, never out of place. Needless to say, I was a lot more mellow and relaxed when I went to the dive shop the next day. We studied in the morning and then Carlos pronounced us ready to get in the water. We hopped in a small boat, headed out a couple miles to a great reef. We suited up, dropped into the water. The first dive was just to get comfortable, didn’t go lower than about 20 feet. We did exercises underwater, learned ...

A Hostel Situation

... stolen a cellphone from the lodge. She claimed that she thought it was Niko's and she thought he had accidentally left it. Luckily Niko was with us and took the phone to return it to its owner.

Once again on the road we made a stop at the Fortuna Dam and were told of how it generates 40% of the electricity for the country and the manner in which it does so. Onward we went to visit a native village and a cacao plantation. It ...

    Our room was very small but clean and it had a window that opened right over the water. Quite nice. The on-demand water heater kind of freaked me out - i had never seen one like it before. It worked more or less. Our room was quite noisy as it was across the hall from the supply room which had a sliding door that banged every time it was closed. The breakfast was a muffin and not a great muffin. The coffee was excellent though and you could buy really good smoothies. Smoking was allowed on the open air common area which could get kind of stinky. The manager (Ben) and Nada who worked the front desk during the day were great as were the cleaning staff. The other front desk staff though were very indifferent and not very helpful. I'm not sure I would stay here again.

    It was away from the middle of town so it was very quiet. The rooms were comfortable and at a good rate. It also has a nice back area, which is the open dining/bar right on the waterfront. There were regularly hummingbirds flying around which was nice. The staff were extremely helpful. The only drawback was that because it was away from the town it sometimes felt a little unsafe walking back at night.

    Noisey if you're downstairs

    The rooms are clean (ours had a funky smell about it) and the hotel is standard. Request a room that is not on the ground floor if you want a quiet night.

    A great view and possibly heaven for everything else.
    They had excursions to offer that cost from 20USD to 40USD.
    The staff was friendly but for the price we paid they could have had a bigger included breakfast.
