  • Day159

    We followed a flat quiet road from El Capomal to the ocean that had been recommended by our hosts. We arrived in San Blas in the early afternoon and continued our search for one of the infamous Centro Botaneros that we'd heard about from a friend who had previously cycled in Mexico. After following a few sets of directions we finally found a dirty/sleezy looking one off an alley and decided we had to give it a try. The concept is that as long as you keep buying beer they keep bringing you food, and sure enough we got a full 3 plates of ceviche/machaca/shrimp to go with our 6 miniature (210 mL) beers all for 90 pesos (around $7.50 CAD). Satisfied with our first Centro Botanero experience we worked our way toward the beach in search of a place to camp. Robert was excited to get a picture with a random plane wreck near the beach, and we soon found a restaurant that was happy to have us set up our tents under their palapa roof. We had another refreshing swim then bought dinner as a way to pay for an otherwise free campsite on the beach. We watched the beautiful sunset, then experienced the only downside of camping on the beach in San Blas: the torture of thousands of sand flies biting any exposed piece of skin!Read more

    The sand flies were terrible again in the morning as we packed up to leave San Blas, but we managed to escape without loosing our minds, although Karl looked like he had chicken pox for over a week after.

Soon we started seeing banana, yaca (jack fruit) and starfruit plantations along the road and stopped at a road side stand to stock up on these delicacies for just a few pesos. The day just kept getting better...Read more

  • Day102

    Wir haben den Wendekreis des Krebses hinter uns gelassen und sind also jetzt in tropischen Breiten angekommen. Das Klima ist schwülwarm, und mancherorts haben wir mit ganzen Armeen stechender und beißender Insekten zu kämpfen. Die Vegetation ist üppig grün, und auf unseren Bootsfahrten durch den Dschungel und entlang der palmengesäumten Küste entdecken wir Tiere, die wir bisher auf dieser Reise noch nicht gesehen haben: Blaufußtölpel und andere tropische Vögel, Krokodile, und einen Nasenbär.Read more
