    Panama?

    Well, it's been decided - my wife and I are going to Panama in february. Anybody got any info that would be helpful - We'll be in Panama City, and then we'll spend some time on the coast. Suggestions? (besides practicing my spanish)

    Def check out Isla de San Blas, not much in the way of surf but very cool travel experience, an archipeligo of a couple hundred islands, most nothing but some beach, palm trees, great snorkeling (w/ live reef, not all bleached out like other parts of the carribean) and all part of Kuna indians autonomous region.

    You can stay in a thachted roof sand floor hut and eat fresh caught fish, snorkel and spearfish all day for very cheap.

    I wasn't impressed with Panama City. Seemed very polluted, and tore up with construction. We went to the Morro Negrito surf camp which is 5-6 hours west of the City and a boat ride away. A couple hours SW of Panama City are some nice beaches in the Rio Mar area, but there are unlikely to be any waves in that area in February.

    If you go to Bocas don't worry about Spanish. Most people out there prefer english. It's creole English but you'll understand it (if they want you to) and they'll understand you (if they want to). Be sure to get out to bastimentos aka old bank. Great people and amazing backside beaches...
