from bocas to boquete

They say all good things must come to an end. Most of the time I choose to disagree, but in the case of Bocas del Toro, I get it. Bocas was gorgeous and fun, and even adventurous at times, but it ain't no Boquete. Allow me to demonstrate...
Saturday morning breakfast: huevos revueltos y tostados con jugo naranja.
Wake up call: 8 a.m. Morning thoughts: Exhausted with a chance of hangover.
 Early rise purpose: Full-day boat ride involving dolphin watching, the islands of Zapallar, and snorkeling.
Down time: 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. for showers and a nap.
The Happiest Hour & Jungle Party: Panama, face paint, worldly friends.
Nighttime peak: 3 a.m.
Walk home snack: beef and vegetable kabob.
Phew, it's wonderfully exhausting to relive it :). Sunday morning we departed the island party life to head southwest. And that is where Boquete comes in. 
Nestled in the mountains, between the Caldera River and Baru Volcano, Boquete has a temperate climate, beautiful flowers, multiple coffee plantations and endless opportunities for outdoor activities. It's no wonder it's also one of the top international retirement havens ;). Talk about relaxation! Until next time, besos.
