We are only 30 miles from Costa Rica and this archipelago of islands range from tropical rainforest to mangroves islands.
Once we’d cleared arrival protocols we were finally allowed ashore masked up. We visited a supermarket and delighted in fresh produce and a well deserved ice cream. I think Felix has eaten at least 7 bananas straight! He was delighted with his first coconut juice too.
Most of the town is shut due to COVID19 shutdown so we soon departed for a rural bay to enjoy the wildlife. We happily anchored amongst mangroves outside Red Frog. The name comes from its famous inhabitants, yes, red frogs which we had great fun spotting in the rain forest. We also saw our first sloth (in the wild) too on our walk to the beach. It’s great to be able to hike!
Panama has put out a new decree that all yachts are now banned from moving which is a pain. But at least we are in a lovely area and we are happy to explore these islands for a couple of weeks. The surf is good and the beach is long. There are worse places to be stuck I am sure.
