Hach, it is as if it had just been yesterday that we sat at "our" pier right by the sea and read a book. Here in the Casa Acuario on the Bocas del Toro, the world is still in order ...
Schon the arrival by speed boat from the mainland to the main island Bocas del Toros is great. Arrived there, shows this little island with various bars, restaurants and hotels directly on or above the water their special charm. But we want to reminisce a bit off the hustle and bustle of our unique Central America trip here in Panama ends.
We book a room in the guesthouse Casa Acuario on the offshore island of Isla Carenero and land in paradise. You also have to go back by boat. Although it is not a sandy beach, palm trees are still everywhere and the sweet, turquoise blue house on stilts looks like a postcard. I fall in love immediately!
There are only four units, two upstairs and two downstairs. This includes a small open-air bar with fridge and a few chairs with tables for breakfast together. The highlight of the day is to watch the hummingbirds while eating out of the sugar bowl! I love these fascinating little birds ...
The rooms are simply furnished but stylish and with attention to detail. On the terrace you can look in the hammock at the endless blue of the sea.
And then there is this footbridge. It juts far into the water and we are almost always alone here. Pure idyll and the perfect end to our 3-month journey through Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
We do not do much here. From time to time we let ourselves with the taxi boat for reasonably much money to the surrounding dream beaches, like the Red Frog Beach, drive. Once we book a day trip to the lonely bays of the scattered islands on Bocas del Toro and go snorkelling in between. But the most beautiful is it on our jetty on the water ... oh how beautiful is Panama!
