The Shell Beaches of Santa Catalina, Panama

Before going to Panama City to see the canal, we made one more stop at the beach town of Santa Catalina.  We stayed on a farm just outside of town called Hibiscus Garden.  It was a beautiful place right on the beach and had a restaurant and bar.  They also had lots of animals like dogs, cats, chickens, horses, cows, etc.  It was really relaxing to wake up, have a light breakfast and then go beach combing.  We had a small house with rooms and a kitchen all to ourselves.

We pretty much just hung out for a few days and relaxed by the beach.  We made quick friends with the dogs and a little kitten.  The dog came with us every morning to the beach and loved playing fetch.

Here is a picture of some of the treasure we found.  They had some HUGE shells on the beach.  I made sure to grab at least a few big ones.

Hibiscus Garden was a wonderful place to stay.  We did make it into Santa Catalina, but the town itself wasn’t really anything to write home about.  There were a handful of dive shops which we visited, but found out there were no whale sharks in season there so we passed on it.

Next up is Panama City and the canal!
