- Isla Colon (Bocas del Toro archipelago) & Beach Bluff (Isla Colon) & Boquete
- Currency: The USD is an official currency in Panama, alongside the Panamanian Balboa – the USD is more common than the Balboa
- Crossing the Costa Rican/Panama border across the Bridge of Death – a dilapidated bridge connecting the two countries
- Bocas del Toro archipelago (Mouths of the Bull) is located in the province of Bocas del Toro, and are a set of Caribbean islands with crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches
- Isla Colon is the most populated of the islands in the archipelago, and the capital of the province, with the most hotels, bars and restaurants
- There are several bars within the entire archipelago, and “taxi” boat/canoes aka locals ferrying people between islands – if you choose to go from island to island after official taxi hours, practice caution
- Exploring the island via island bicycles and struggling through gravel, stone, and sand roads to get to Playa Bluff
- Beware the creepy old men that also frequent these bars
- After Boquete, we left for Boquete, a small town in the highlands of Panama
- Swimming through rapids in a river canyon and jumping into the river below (a local swimming spot not known by many tourists)
- White water rafting, round 2
- Having no amenities available during white water rafting – seeing someone wade far into the river and nodding to each other, knowing exactly what they are doing, because, no shame.
