Thank you for visiting my travel journal of my 30 day trip to Central America, featuring Costa Rica and Panama. This trip was made in the summer of 2011 and I traveled with my wife. We traveled on a budget, making the use of local buses, ferries, and public transportation. We stayed at small hotels and hostels. Our travels took us to:
- San Jose
- Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
- Bocas del Toro
- El Valle de Anton
- Panama City
We traveled during the low season. Rain was not too bad nor was it an issue. Tropical rains are usually something I enjoy, as they bring a nice break to the heat and tend to not last long. The rain is often heavy and powerful, quickly starting and ending. The low season generally means more heat, but it also means the water is warmer and there are less crowds. Overall, I love traveling in the low season, as prices are lower as well and I find that I get some of the great locales to myself.
On our way we flew from Boston to Fort Lauderdale Florida and into San Jose and left via Panama City with a stop over in Fort Lauderdale before ending in New York. I hope you enjoy this journal. Feel free to comment or link your sites and travels about Central America in the comments. Thank you for reading!
