This place is like Switzerland!! Views in every direction. Cooler temps in the 70's during the day this time of year. Misty and cooler in the later afternoons. Clear skies at night. This place costs around $65 per night including a good buffet breakfast. The star of the hotel is a Toucan bird named Toucky. He has the run of the place, both indoors and outdoors. You can see from the pics that he likes to pose. He is worse than Trey. ;)

We had arranged to do a hike with a local guide named John. He was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent english. We hiked (or more walked) along the pipeline trail in search of the elusive quetzal! There also happened to be a large group on the trail ahead of us so unfortunately we didn't see anything. But we did get to ...

No siree. Well, that was that.

... were steps, half were missing or broken. We persevered in the rain hoping that it wouldn't just be another waterfall - we've seen quite a few in our time. Thankfully, it was a little different to the standard water falling over a cliff edge, the water was flowing left and right and back again as it bounced it's way down steep rocky slope into a small pool at the bottom.
On the way back up the path David noticed what he thought was a snake at the side of the path. ...
... for a good meal at the restaurant next door to our hostel and I was ELATED not only to find Sauvignon Blanc on the menu, but also have it served in the biggest bucket of a wine glass I have ever paid for - I couldn't have poured it better at home - and for only $3 :) So a couple of those and a good night's sleep and it was onward and upward the next morning to the next destination - Bocas del Toro - a small Panamanian island of the Caribbean coast famous for its surfing... and ...
... captain free dive with a spear for lobsters and huge conch shells which they eat for tea. We stayed on another village island where we had tea and played more werewolf.
On our third day, we finally had some sunshine, we headed for a smaller island, which only has 1 kuna family living on it, where we set up our hammocks to stay for the night. This was literally paradise. It was a small island with lots of palm trees, basically surrounded by white ...
