Travel Blogs from Drake Bay

Bahia Drake, Marine Wildlife Safari & a "wedding".

A travel blog entry by ptpattys_places


... Wildlife Safari where we hoped to see sea birds, dolphins and whales. We did see a lot of frigate birds, brown pelicans, brown boobies and 3 pods of dolphins but no whales. I can now add brown boobies to my life list. We spent about an hour on a beautiful sugary black sand beach in a bay backed by the jungle. We had fresh fruit treats and our guide found some fruit-nose bats in an old abandoned cabin. ...

... night we removed about 30 before going to sleep. They started their march as soon as darkness fell and continued through the night. Jim insisted on putting the light on when he went to the bathroom as he didn't want to stand on them. It is amazing how quickly one adjusts to the unexpected.

... says, that is me, come on. We're a little suspicious, Deb asks if he is Mario, and he says Si, and mentions his wife's name. So before we know it, he has our bag on his shoulder and we're off up the hill. Turns out it the right guy, although we had been kidnapped and put on the wrong boat, but no big problem.
