Santa Rita Arriba, Colon

This is a view of the port of Colon  taken from the side of a cliff in Santa Rita Arriba.  Santa Rita Arriba is a small town located outside the city of Colon.  If you are interested in witnessing exotic wildlife in its natural habitat, I suggest you visit Santa Rita Arriba. There is a quaint eco-lodge called Sierra Llorona where you can spend the night and walk the nature trails that have been cut through the rain forest.  Click on the link below to see some great photographs taken in this area.

Sierra Llorona Lodge

If you are looking for a quiet, out of the way place to spend your vacation, then Sierra Llorona Lodge may be what you have been searching for. It is a quiet little eco-lodge wedged in the rainforest in the province of Colon. You can go hiking, bird watching, or just relax in a nice hammock.  Click on the link below for more information.

Early Morning Meeting

Here in this bustling city, business deals get started early. Any given morning,  you can go to any coffee shop or restaurant and find men in suit and ties, mapping out their financial future.  As I walked along the Cinta Costera early this morning I caught sight of a different kind of meeting.   I wonder what the topic of discussion was.

Huracan

This boat is named “huracan”, which means hurricane.  Panama, because of its geographic location, is not prone to hurricanes.  While others battle tropical storms and hurricanes, Panama is blessed with calm seas and soft breezes almost year round. Hopefully, this is the only “huracan” Panama ever hosts in its beautiful, placid seas.
