Boca Brava

Greetings from Boca Brava. We arrived yesterday after taking two buses, a pickup truck and a boat. We are on a small secluded island in the Gulf of Chiriqui on the Pacific side of Panamá. Since we last spoke, Sarah and I have had quite the adventure. We got in touch with Randy who operates the Mañana Madera farm and hotel. We had some very, very delicious coffee from his farm. Apparently last year they set a record and sold a pound of Boquete coffee for $164!! he also gave us a tour of the grounds and showed us the guest house that he rents out to travellers. You can see a link to his website in our new "Hall of Fame". We also went to the garden that had been closed a few days before. The garden was unique with its fake cows and many koi ponds. After all that activity we needed to wind down a bit and come to our island. We have rented two hammocks at the hotel on Boca Brava, and so far the howler monkees haven't come too close. The racoon, however, decided to go rifling through a nearby trashcan in the middle of the night until I hissed him away. We went to the little beach this morning, Sarah had a good time chasing some crabs around. Anyways, it's probably about time to wander to the eating hammock so we can order some lobster for dinner!
