Day trip to Islas Bolanos and Gamez Golfo de Chiriquí National Park, Panama

This site is obsolete

The word has got out at Hotel Boca Brava, 
and we have organised for two boatloads to go out and visit the islands today.
This is a great service the hotel organises.
It includes the snorkel and mask.
It includes a great lunch.
It also provides some coolers with drinks you can purchase on an honour system.

My son is out in his pyjamas checking out the sunrise.

We head off in the second boat, eager to see the islands.

We arrive at the first island.
the beaches are gorgeous, with white sand.

Before  know it, my seven year old is off down the beach.

We are all left getting the gear out of the boats.

The sand is a mix of white and volcanic in one part of the beach.
Here there are little fresh water springs right on the shore.
We start to dig a well.
Before long, many of the fellow travellers have joined us.

We have a bit of fun chasing the waves.

We have a great time learning to snorkel.

It is quite warm and soon after we head for the shade.
Others on the beach have found a coconut and managed to get it open.
They are enjoying the flesh as we join them under the trees.

We then head to the second island ....

...where we have lunch.
This was a relaxing time.
Snicker bars to finish off - with a nice cold drink - superb!

My son enjoys a jump off the boats after lunch time.

The water is divine and it is hard to keep out of it.

The boat ride back was great.
We had all become friends.
I am so pleased we did this.
It will be a highlight of our trip for sure.

It is nice to see the hotel when we arrive back later in the afternoon.
It has been a wonderful day.

We all sit around and watch the sunset.
We ate dinner together and shared a drink, and a story.
What an absolutely wonderful day.

Based on this we have decided we may stay on longer.
Life is too good here.
We are relaxed and just having the best time.
I really, really do not want it to end.
