Sunday, February 17, 2013

After scurrying from Amarante as fast as we could, we arrived at the famed Bocas del Toro and we were very excited. Once we settled in a Cayo Zapatilla it was time for lunch and finally after two and a half months of traveling I found a decent sandwich, thank you Panderia Alemana. Who knew it would be this hard to find fresh (non-sweet) bread and good cheeses down here.  After a tour around town and a walk to one of the beaches to watch the kiteboarders we called it a night.

Day two was spent on a floating chair in the surf of Starfish Beach in Bocas del Drago, a half hour cab ride and 20 minute hike to the other side of Isla Colon. The emerald waters, home to many star fish was the perfect place to soak in some sun, toss around the frisbee and watch the rest of the island get rained on.  But once our day at the beach was over, so was our time of clear skies.  

Before dinner, Alana took a yoga class with a group of tourists and locals at Bocas Yoga while I took a nap.
The next day our attempt to cross over to Isla Bastimentos to visit Wizard Beach was foiled by the continuous showers that plague these islands, even In the dry season. Instead the day was passed eating mangos, trying different Panamanian beers, and playing several games of Yahtzee. When we finally had a break in the clouds we quickly hopped on a water taxi to Isla Caramero for a nice dinner at the Cosmic Crab.

On our final morning we said good bye to Bocas del Toro and the country of Panama, as this afternoon we would cross the bridge to Costa Rica, our fourth country on this adventure.
