From our first leg of our trip (Puerto Viejo), we headed across the border (a treacherous 150 meter bridge missing several planks) to Panama where we took a water taxi to the islands of Bocas Del Toro. We stayed on the main island (Isla Colon) at Bluff Beach Retreat – an eco resort right on the ocean. This Canadian operated resort is off the grid and we loved the location – about a 15 min drive to the busy main town.
While enjoying our 3 day stay at Bluff Beach Retreat, we enjoyed a boat tour (including stops at Dolphin Bay and Sloth Island), amazing home cooked meals (thanks Celine), an impromptu synchro swim routine, lots of tasty beverages, a night of dancing, snorkelling, massages, some trail runs and more beach time. Overall, we were feeling very fortunate to be able to experience the tranquility and simplicity of life on the island.
As with our last trip to Belize, Shauna’s poor little body rejected her insect bites which led to some uncomfortable sleeps but as per usual, she was a trooper.
From Bocas Del Toro, we hopped on a plane to Panama City for our last stop of the trip. Staying at the swank Casa del Horno in the old city, we ventured to the Canals, hit up lunch at the Causeway and had amazing food at Veggie Moon before saying goodbye to the heat and excitement of Panama and heading home to Cow Town.
Thanks ladies for a fantastic trip and for all the laughs.
