Day 4 and 5: Popa Paradise Beach

After arriving on the Island of Bocas del Toro, we had a nice breakfast at the Popa's sister hotel on Bocas while awaiting our water transit over to Popa. There are many little islands in this area and we chose Popa for its beauty, solitude and natural preserve. We were not disappointed.
The first thing I did was take a nap in the most inviting and comfortable hammock ever (we had to get up at 4:00 AM for our early morning flight over).
This place is remote and beautiful, and as it turns out, we are currently the only guests. They are expecting more in a couple days but in the meantime, they feed us when we want and what we want...the ultimate relaxation.
It is a bit overcast with possible rain coming. Panama does not have four seasons as we know them. They have only a wet season and a dry season. Otherwise the temperature stays constant pretty much all year. It is currently the rainy season. They have not seen rain however in two weeks so will welcome it any day.
Our bungalow is lovely and private, where we can see and not be seen. It has a beautiful view of the beach and ocean from the lanai out the back.
In the middle of the night, the rains did come...thunder and lightening like I've never seen. In the morning it was still raining, but not hot or humid, which was nice. We ate breakfast outside on the patio, just us.
Time to sign off for the day and do some exploring...till next time.
