Centro Americano

This past April, my husband and I, went with some family and friends to a remote surf camp off the southern coast of Panama, an island called Morro Negrito. The journey to camp, as well as the many details of our trip all were nothing less of an absolutely amazing adventure.

Upon arriving in Panama, we had quite the experience just on the ride to the hotel. We knew if this was any preface of what was to come, that this was going to be one interesting week! Below are some photos that were taken around camp. I hope you enjoy them!

When arriving on the island, we walked a path through the edge of the jungle on our way to camp. This hut is what many call home, however this particular hut held supplies. One of many grateful moments while staying on the island.

Roberto! I fell in love with this little guy. One afternoon we decided to take a break from the waves and went on a jungle hike across the island. Halfway across there is a village of huts where the people of the island live, Roberto is sitting on the porch of one of the more fortunate families' home. He was their pet, and was on a leash. We fed him a juice box and some animal crackers. We loved him!

The last night of our trip we stayed in Panama City, at the Hotel Centro Americano. There was a cool bar downstairs where we had a few Panamanian beers, caught up on some news (since we had been out of the modern world for a week) and enjoyed the air conditioning and a hot shower!

These are just a few of the photos from our Adventure in Panama. If this is something you like, I will definitely have to add more later.
