We loved our road trip up the mountain to Boquete, Panama but it's great to be back on the boat again. We're in full on let's-get-crap-done-mode so we can sail on to the next destination. We're hoping to stay in Bastimentos for another week or so while we do some needed boat maintenance, pick up our newest crew member and have our last few adventures in the Bocas del Toro archipelago.
As always, we've documented way more that we share on our website (you can't fit it all into a video). If you're curious about the locations, contacts, product links or seeing some exclusive photographs make sure to click over:
Thanks for watching and being such an important part of the journey that we call life.
Jason, Nikki, Cleo and Singa
