What has been fantastic in our trip through Panama and Costa Rica. Everything above expectations and every day we think back to the beautiful nature, the animals, the people and all the beautiful things we have seen and experienced together. The trip was very well arranged and met more than 100% of our expectations and wishes, beautiful small accommodations which we really were one with the people and nature. We met a lot of nice locals and experienced a lot. We got a lot from the daily life of the local people and were able to take all nature, we spotted a lot of animals, with a guide and ourselves! It is a journey never to be forgotten and every day we will think back to the wonderful period that we have had there.
Meanwhile, we are back from a fantastic journey through Panama that we have been able to make with you. And what a varied journey it has been! We have received more than enough information, nice that on the way we were also contacted if everything was ok. The concerns about arranging nice places to stay were completely taken out of our hands. The small scale of the hotels or bed and breakfasts ensured that we were always well taken care of on the spot. We have done everything by public bus or shuttles. That is great, because the distances are not that big you can travel quietly. The people are very helpful and friendly, often they drive you with the luggage to the final destination. Not to mention how often we got a smile and a piece of fruit. A wonderful multi-purpose journey and seen so much, we can enjoy it for a long time!
The trip to Bocas went smoothly. Nice lodges above the water. Lots of snorkeling and swimming. During a beach walk an Indian settlement was seen. They had just caught a huge fish. The trip to Panama City was delayed due to a tropical rain shower of nearly two hours. Was also special. Until then, we have practically no rain. The stay in Panama City was short but interesting. Visiting Casco Viejo and the lock complex of the Miraflores was particularly worthwhile. Also Panama Viejo was worth it with its ruins. Also experienced a tropical rain of one and a half hours. During that rain had a nice conversation with an excellent English speaking lady. The flight home went smoothly. The trip and locations were very worthwhile. Thanks for the excellent organization!
We have made a beautiful, well organized trip through Panama and Costa Rica. Everything was very well arranged and we had nice, mostly small-scale locations to stay. It was a varied journey and we have seen a lot of nature.
Panama City: Our hotel was fine and special to be in the city, canal, exhibition, the old town, etc. Then flying to Bocas de Toro: great, special to experience how far sailing was to the mangrove island at Francine . Wonderful there and wonderful lodge. They cook delicious! Then back to Boca and with the shuttle bus to the border: what a separate border, such an old railway bridge!
