Panama: The Places You Picked Out Were Great

Hi Barbara,
We loved Panama, and the places you picked out were great.. ....Los Quetzales was great. We had a female quetzal land outside the deck fifteen minutes after we checked in. We should have followed your advice about the sweaters, instead of relying on my usual tropical alternative, a light weight poly shirt I use for skiing. We were 500 feet higher than the lodge and at that altitude the temps were a damp 50 degrees. Happily, the wood stove made evenings very comfortable. We used a meal option that didn't appear on the website. For $10, they will deliver meals from the restaraunt. We brought our own wine, they supplied the food, and we had the evenings to ourselves, watching the hummingbirds and bats. We loved Al Naturale, and wished we had spent another day there. It was far better than we expected from the descriptions of Bocas. The food was the best I have ever had in Latin America. Our flight to Panama City was moved up, but we really enjoyed the Balboa Inn and the neighborhood around it. Good birding in the garden and around the streets. It put us up over 90 species for the trip, and we are not serious birders (unlike most of the other Panama tourists we met. Thanks for putting together a great trip. Thanks again Will Panama Adventure: Will Rice 2011
