... the sun go down over a neighboring island.
The last night of our island stay was spent in Bocas del Toro on Isla Colon (the major and most developed island in the region). While being more touristy, it was still a chilled out town with that Caribbean vibe. By night we discovered an amazing and delicious passionfruit cocktail concoction at a bar right on the water and ate some average Thai food!
M&M's next stop is in Costa Rica!
... Came back the same trail, felt a bit better (dryer). We grabbed a water taxi to a 'club' called "Aqua Launch" in a nearby island and drank more beer :)... then home to sleep it off.
UNFORTUNATELY: I left my new glasses there. Lucky thing I have two other pairs... but I still want my glasses back. Hopefully, I will be able to go back and I am pretty sure I will find them in a particular spot where I rested by a particular bush.
... head down to bamboo central for cocktail hour. Everyone is there and we all seem to be getting on famously. The party materials materialize and the jokes get funnier. This is good! At one point Julie asks the clearly content Evan if he is happy.
"No," he replies his tone sonorous, poetic, "I'm-a no heppy."
We all pile up trying to get him to admit he's happy, but nothing, "I'm-a no heppy."
Dinner is absolutely perfect. ...
... away. So another water taxi later we made it to the right island. Ruairi didnt.
Anyhow, it turned out the island we were on had the best beaches so we hung out there for a day before heading back to the main island. The Red Frog beach was probably the most picturesque beach id seen since leaving Isla Mujeres in Mexico. Bugger all people, white sand and blue, blue water surrounded by thick jungle.
Back on the main island we checked into a hostel. ...
... it went away in a couple of days. We went back for more the next day anyway - and this time Bryce made sure to wear a shirt in the water.
This place was incredible and living on the beach for a few days was amazing, but we were definitely ready to do some laundry and get decent showers after three days straight of beachin it. We took an early boat off the island on our 4th day there and began our trek to Costa Rica.
