To wrap up my posts about my getaway trip to Panama last year, the final post is about a wonderful boat-trip from Bocas del Toro to nearby islands to do some dolphin watching.

Finca La Milagrosa Coffee Plantation Tour - Boquoete Panama (17)

In my short stop in Boquete up on the central mountains of Panama I did a couple of tours. The first was a horseback riding hotsprings tour I wrote about before, and in the rainy afternoon we were taken to the coffee plantation to hear a bit about the blooming Panama coffee industry and see […]

Horseback riding and hotsprings -Boquete Panama (17)

After a few days in Panama City and the gorgeous islands of Bocas del Toro I took a boat and bus down south and up the mountain to Boquete, considered one of the best American Xpat retirement towns. For a small town, there’s plenty to do, and only once I arrived I realized I could have probably planned for longer. […]

Isla Carenero  Bocas Del Toro Province - Panama (18)

When visiting the lovely Bocas Del Toro islands in Panama I spent my first night at the Bocas Del Toro Town. Of all the places you can stay on those islands, Bocas Del Toro is probably the worst option, unless you want some variant of nightlife or care about convenient shopping. So, one of the […]

The Panama Canal  Panama City (8)

I made a last minute decision to go see Panama and when trying to figure out what the local attractions were most websites first pointed me to the Panama Canal, a quick trip from Panama City, proclaimed as one of the greatest architectural projects of our time. I admit my expectations were set high, so […]

Panama mountains islands visions (10)

The main attractions of Panama aren’t in Panama City, they’re out in the islands and mountains of Panama. Having limited time, I took a short flight on a tiny plane out to the islands – Bocas Del Toro. It reminded me of my visits to some of the more distant parts of the Philippines and […]

Visions of Panama City (1)

In the year I had living in the US I was hoping to venture out to see a lot of central and south America, but as the year came to a close I was becoming aware of the possibility that I’ll be leaving the region without seeing that part of the world. So, looking at […]
