It’s 6:45 am and my arm is stretched as far as it can go over my head. I can hear the birds chirping, laughing at me as I attempt to follow the instructions of the smallest, meanest yoga teacher with the cutest accent ever. Maybe 6:30 am yoga my first morning in Costa Rica wasn’t the best idea of my life, I think to myself as the sweat that the middle-aged goddess…

    Finding the Lost Waterfalls of Boquete, Panama

    Disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase from one of them I will recieve a small commision at no extra cost to you, which allows me to keep this blog up and running! One of the beautiful things about Boquete – and Panama in general – is the fact that it is still relatively off the beaten track. Because of this, I didn’t really know what to expect when I got there.

When I originally started researching where to stay in Bocas del Toro while we were there, I focused my search on Bocas Town, figuring that it would be a good base for exploring the rest of the archipelago. However, when I read about Beverly’s Hill Guesthouse on Isla Bastimentos, I knew that it was where we had to stay. As it turned out, I couldn’t have made a better decision. During the five days…

    Disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase from one of them I will recieve a small commision at no extra cost to you, which allows me to keep this blog up and running! Updated April 14, 2018 I first read about Red Frog Beach pretty early on in my research about what there was to do in Bocas del Toro. At first, I filed it away in the back of my mind as a place that we could take a water taxi to for a lazy beach day. A little later on in my research, I read that it was possible to walk from Wizard Beach along…
