Bocas del Toro, or the one where I fall fully clothed into the sea

13th-17th December 2015 Our trip from Costa Rica to Panama was the most stressful yet – without going into detail it started with our bus not picking us up so having to wait 4 hours for another, involved a man singing ‘No Woman No Cry’ to us very awkwardly in the middle of the most … More Bocas del Toro, or the one where I fall fully clothed into the sea

Puerto Viejo, or the one with the best room in the house

9th-13th December 2015 Puerto Viejo is going to be a place of few words, mainly because it was great and we had a generally great time there.

Our next choice of stop therefore, was made by recommendation of a girl … More San Juan del Sur, or the one in which we don’t party in the party town

Leon, or the one where we really start to get exhausted

26th-29th November 2015 It took another long day of travel to get from El Tunco to Leon, and this was further delayed by the fact that the shuttle we’d booked ourselves on was almost two hours late. We were on and off the bus all day, stopping for a weird cafeteria breakfast (with white Christmas … More Leon, or the one where we really start to get exhausted
