It’s 2013 and i’m still playing blog catch up. However this is going to be the last location specific blog post I write for a while on Central America. I’m now in Cartagena Colombia and have my sights set on what is ahead.
Having said that…..
This past Christmas I had the opportunity to spend it on the tropical paradise island of Bocas Del Toro in Panama.
That is when its not pouring with rain for 2 days straight!
But although it was raining everyone in the hostel still managed to have a good time. The purchase of a 2 litre bottle of rum and 5 litres of coca cola helped to lighten the mood
But luckily the rain cleared briefly in the afternoon to give us some time to go to a nearby beach.
After an afternoon of relaxing on the beach we returned back to the hostel for a family style christmas dinner. It wasnt the same as being with family but with all the friends I’d met at the hostel it was a really good atmosphere and everyone had a lot of fun.
On boxing day we were greeted with an amazingly beautiful sunny day and as this was my last day in Bocas Del Toro I really wanted to see what beautiful beaches this paradise had to offer. After numerous recommendations on which beach was the best a group of us from the hostel decided to go to Starfish Beach which is located a short bus ride from bocas del drago.
Overall my time on Bocas Del Toro was interesting and despite the rain it was still a lot of fun. However in terms of amazing beaches I still personally felt the beaches of Playa Del Carmen and beaches of Tulum were far better. in terms of crystal clear water and powdery white sand.
