We paid for a tour
The weather took a turn for the worse so we stopped near another island where we waited out the rain drinking Sangria made with star fruit. Once the rain passed we stopped for a snorkel. The visibility was amazing and the white sands gave the perfect contrast to the colorful fish and sea urchins.
Our last snorkel spot was cloudy because of the rain so our trip was cut short.
Overall Bocas del Toro is a must if you are in the area. It is a nicely kept secret, a little more touristic than my personal preference. It is a cheaper version of any Mexican resort and not too underdeveloped. Since everyone is offering the same entertainment the prices stay competitive. The lodging is fairly inexpensive but we found meals to be expensive relative to everything else.
We are leaving in the morning back to Costa Rica and overall I was thoroughly impressed by Panama. The people are super friendly and are eager to make a good impression. Until the US government allows us to head to Havana, Panama City will have to do as my comparable alternative. I am looking forward to Bocas again after I buy that place I want in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica.
