Oh Panama...

06 November 2009 | Santa Catalina
Where do we begin... We have loved our time in Panama, it is definitely the jewel of Central America. So many beautiful topical islands to discover, enjoy & appreciate. So many incredible anchorages, some with nearby surf, some with great snorkeling and some so snug & comfortable you just don't want to leave. And the native people we've encountered are so friendly, good natured and kind. To sum it up, Panama is simply awesome.

If there has been a downside, it's that we've ventured thru these waters at the peak of the rainy season. We left Golfito, and hunkered down outside Pavones for 3 days waiting out a 48hr monsoon downpour, and surfing of course between the showers. Island hopping thru Panama, we seen intermittent rainy & sunny days, although we just sat out a 72hr downpour in Bahia Honda. We're now anchored at Santa Catalina island, preparing for an ocean crossing to Equador that we think will take seven days or so. With the current sunny forecast, it looks like we're off tomorrow for the 500 mile blue water crossing.
