Bocas del Toro Isla Colon (Hostel Hansi)September 21, 2015 in Panama
From San José 5h by bus to Sixaola, crossing the border by foot, 1h by Taxi to Almirante and finally 1/2h by boat to Isla Colon.
Immediately brings to your mind 'Oh, wie schön ist Panama', the famous German children book telling a story about two friends, a bear and a tiger, heading for the their country of dreams, Panama. Actually, it might not be that dreamlike at first sight regarding all the trash in the streets. At a second glance, however, it definitely is as soon as you have seen all the colourful wood houses, felt the Carribean wind and flair, so different from the Pacific, and caught the right bus or boat to stunning beaches such as the Starfish Beach on Isla Colon with clear water, star fishes of course and sometimes challenging trails to get back to civilization.
At night, the place to be is certainly the Selina Hostel, where you meet travelers from around the world, and the la Iguana Bar, where Jamaican Reggae meets Salsa music <3Read more
