Into Panama and Bocas del Toro

We were excited to move onto Panama and get closer to the canal!  Panama is a little bit cheaper than Costa Rica, but not by much.  Panama has a great economy with the canal and it’s cities and towns were a treat to visit.

Our first stop was Bocas del Toro, a collection of islands in the northwestern part of the country.  We had to drive to a small town called Almirante, leave our car parked securely, and then hitch a water taxi over to the islands.  Bocas del Toro has some great beaches, surfing, yummy food, and cheap drinks.  What more could you ask for?!

I loved hopping from island to island with water taxis, it’s always a unique experience.  We ended up visiting Red Frog Beach on the island of Bastimentos and had a wonderful beach day.  Not crowded at all and enjoyed some awesome surf, swimming, and lounging.

The island is also home to the poisonous red dart frog which lived in the jungles.  We didn’t see any in the wild while we were there, but there were little kids roaming around the beach with pouches made of big leaves with little red frogs in them.  They were walking around trying to get money from tourists for pictures of the red frogs.

Bocas del Toro was beautiful and friendly.  Definitely a must see in Panama for sure.
