We flew to the Caribbean side of Panama next and stayed in the town of Bocas Del Toro on the island Colon. It was a fun, relaxed town which felt very laid back and had a cool vibe. Our hotel was very charming (especially since the one we stayed at in Panama City was slightly disappointing).
We loved spending time wandering the streets and trying new food. We had some delicious seafood and fish, which would continue through our whole stay.
Our first day there we took a boat taxi to a smaller island to spend some time on the beach, which was quite nice. We laid on the sand, collected some shells and wandered along the beach for awhile and saw some cool rock formations and trees.
Then walked to a small restaurant and bar built over the ocean and waited for our ride back to Bocas.
Our second day we took a tour of some of the surrounding islands and beaches. The weather was beautiful and we had a wonderful time enjoying the water, beautiful sand and didn't think at all of the snow and cold in West Virginia.
Our favorite stop on the tour was Red Frog Beach. The inland portion of the island has poison dart frogs that live in the jungle, but the beach was the best part. Beautiful golden sand and clear, vibrant water with great waves made for a lot of fun.
We really had a great time at Bocas Del Toro, but we had to go somewhere else....where did we go? Stay tuned...
