      Knowing this was our last day I asked the front desk if we could get a late checkout for 2PM.  We woke up to rain but we felt confident it would clear up by lunch time.  We had breakfast on the terrace while watching the rain.  We decided after breakfast we would lounge in the lobby and check emails while it rained.  And as soon as it stopped we stompled up to the room and grabbed the beach bags, changed and hit the beach.   It didn't take long to see how the lagoon was with the wind and rain.  The visibility was bad so we decided to snorkel once the current and murkiness cleared.   Back to the pool! 

      I suggested we walk back up the cliff to take the pictures we really didn't get a chance to take yesterday since the battery died out.  That was such a good idea because the instant we got up to the top the skies parted and the sun came out for perfect shots.  Looking down on the lagoons the water was looking like glass.  We trotted down the hill and piled on our snorkel gear.  Visibility was good but not perfect.  I estimate we snorkekeled for 2 hours and saw a 5 point black star fish.  I started to get thirsty so finished snorkeling.  Before we knew it it was getting time to pack our bags for check out.  We left out bags at the concierge office until we left.

      We sat at the pool bar drinking and dipping in the pool for the remainder of the day.  At 4PM the guest appreciation starts on the beach with Palaun male warrior dancers.  The resort was cracking fresh young coconuts for guests and adding rum to the coconut water for sipping.  I think the coconuts were too young to even taste the water.  

      Sunset was picture perfect and simply beautful.  It will be the sunset I will always remember and has been etched into my skull.  I could hear the sun sizzle as it sank into the water horizon.  Simply wonderful. 

      We ate the themed dinner buffet Palaun and sat poolside instead of sitting in the restaurant.  A perfect meal to a perfect end of the day.

      Tobago.....all natural...nothing artificial added

       

      Tobago is Trinidad's sister island at the bottom of the Caribbean chain just a few miles off the coast of Venezuela.  While Trinidad is industrialized and heavily populated, Tobago is vastly a nature lover's eco-friendly paradise.  Many travelers go there purposely to escape the mega-resorts that pamper tourists and have a dress code for meals.  Travel lighter with just swimsuits, lightweight shirts, shorts, flip flops, walking shoes, sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, bug spray and your camera.

       

      Flying to Tobago ( Crown Point International Airport ) is easy on the weekly direct flight out of Atlanta on Delta Air Lines.  It's also possible to fly from Houston, Miami or New York through Trinidad which may require an overnight stay before taking the 20 minute $24 each way flight or 2 1/2 hour ferry ride across.

       

      ISPS Scuba Club Tobago DivingTobago is a land of world famous dive sites with the world's largest brain coral at the Coral Gardens dive site, manta rays, sharks, turtles and ship wrecks to explore underwater.  The island's waters are crystal clear allowing snorkelers to examine the coral reefs and sea life below.  Bird watchers can find 200+ species of birds in Tobago, 22 of which are found there but not in Trinidad.  Many rare species live on Little Tobago, a small island a mile offshore of northeast Tobago.

       

      One of the best areas to explore all these outdoor pursuits is Speyside at the northeast tip of Tobago.  View across Batteaux Bay to Goat Island and Little Tobago by Laura ColemanView across Batteaux Bay to Goat Island and Little Tobago by Laura ColemanView across Batteaux Bay to Goat Island and Little Tobago by Laura ColemanSpeyside is an hour from the airport on roads with hairpin turns perched on cliffs directly above the Atlantic Ocean that are only wide enough for one lane of traffic in some spots.  The ocean views are spectacular if your stomach is up to the ride!  Along the way you pass through the villages of Belle Gardens, Glamorgan and Roxborough with street names like Toad St., Union St., Doctor Rd. and Coconut Drive.  There are tightly packed brightly colored houses with laundry hanging out to dry, some built precariously on the steep hillside and appear ready to slip into the ocean far below.Handpainted Signs in Tobago 

      Handpainted Signs in TobagoOn most buildings the establishment names are hand painted with some misspelled like Triplle A Market and Bread Shak but since Tobagonians are unpretentious it doesn't matter. You'll see the locals socializing, called "liming", in the streets or on front porches and they never walk into a room without the customary "Good Morning" or "Good Afternoon" to everyone that is there.  Locals honk "hello" when passing on the road and it's common to see vehicles stop in the middle of the road to chat.

       

      If you're an experienced scuba diver or want to learn then see Sean Robinson who runs Tobago Dive Experience in Speyside.  He's been in the business for more than 25 years and is well respected in dive circles throughout the world.  Sean has hosted and collaborated with Sport Diver magazine and the BBC to produce documentaries and articles on diving in Tobago and is active in reef conservation efforts.   Vidya, from Trinidad, is director of the dive company and will set up excursions, airport transfers and even help with booking airfare. 

      Manta Lodge in Speyside, TobagoYou can stay at Sean's family's adjoining 22 room hotel called Manta Lodge.  It's a no frills, no fuss dive hotel where you'll meet travelers from just about everywhere and enjoy some really fresh local food cooked by Eddie.  Have Arthur take you fishing and then enjoy your grilled catch for dinner with a bottle or two of Carib or Stag, the beers of Trinidad and Tobago.  At Manta Lodge wearing your swimsuit or shorts is fine for meals and shoes are even optional. 

       

      There is a stretch of black sand beach across from the hotel facing Goat Island and Little Tobago.  Goat Island was at one time the home of Ian Fleming of 007 fame and some of his books were penned there.  His home sits at the base of the island.  Spend some time in a glass bottom boat and head out that way.  If you're diving try the dive site 007 right behind the island.  As you sit on the beach the village of Speyside is to your right with fishing boats anchored out in the water and homes built up into the hillside.  Coconut Trees on BeachTo the left is  jagged coastline with coconuts trees hanging out over the water and swaying in the warm breeze.  A few boulders sit out in the splashing water resembling scenes from a movie.  You may see a local Coconut Man walking along the beach  wearing knee-high rubber boots with a rope tied to his shorts for shimmying up the tree, a large machete to cut down the coconuts and a bag to carry them.

       

      Around the corner from the Manta Lodge is the site of an old plantation with the original waterwheel from 1834.  The iron is rusty but the mechanism is still mostly in one piece. Tobago Cotton by Laura ColemanThere is still a stray bit of cotton growing nearby.  The skeleton of an old footbridge over a dry creek bed is barely visible through the thick foliage of the rainforest.   The area is overgrown and virtually forgotten but if you look closely and walk alongside the remains of the old stone walls of the Bird of Paradise Inn you can imagine how beautiful this area must have been long ago when it was a functioning plantation growing sugar cane, cocoa, cotton, coconut and other fruit trees.   This idyllic scene borders the Atlantic Ocean on the north end of Speyside.

       

      So for your next vacation why not forget the cruise ship and mega resort crowds and have your own adventure in Tobago as nature always intended.

  • Panama, more than just a canal Panama, more than just a canal

      Panama, more than just a canal             

           My most recent trip in Panama was one of the memorable trips I have ever taken.  We started with a well planned city tour on Sunday, first stop, the Miraflores Locks on the Panama Canal. We watched ships pass through the locks from the roof deck, had a chance to view a movie on the construction of both the old and new canal projects and spent some time in the new museum. After passing by the old military zone, now the ‘City of Knowledge’, we went to the Amador and an island owned by the Smithsonian.  There you can learn all about Panama; how the land was formed, animals past and present, the American military presence, the flora, and all while enjoying the ocean views and maybe even spot a sloth in the trees. After a delicious and fresh seafood meal for lunch with the best view of the city skyline, we went to Casco Viejo.  Beautiful cathedrals, colonial buildings, and cobblestone streets make this a perfect place to stroll away the rest of the day. Be sure to try flavored shaved ice in Plaza de Francia  and seafood lovers won’t want to miss the famous fish market.

           After a short flight Monday morning, we were in a different world, the Comarca de Kuna Yala! There are 365 islands (covered in coconut trees and many uninhabited) that make up the Archipielago de San Blas. The Kuna Indians govern the region with little interference from the national government and even used coconuts as currency until the late 1990’s.  We spent two days soaking up the culture while mingling with the Kuna, shopping for their famous molas and watching the traditional dance. We also soaked up the sun on the white sand beaches and while snorkeling in the turquoise Caribbean ocean.

           Back to the city to hop on our transport for the rest of the trip, we crossed the Bridge of the Americas on our way to El Valle.  After about 2 hours, we were amazed at the change of scenery and climate. Located at about 3000ft, in the crater of one of the largest, extinct volcano’s, El Valle’s cool climate is great for hiking, spotting wildlife, and shopping for handicrafts.  There is also a ‘mud bath’, square-trunked tree, and local zoo where you can see some colorful frogs and other exotic animals.

           The Pacific beaches of Panama are another one of the many reasons to visit this wonderful country. Surfing some of the best waves in Central America, scuba diving in the national park compared to the Galapogos, or relaxing by a camp fire on the beach while listening to the sea and counting stars… our guide knew all the best spots!

           I think the parts of Panama that surprised me the most were the mountains. We drove higher and higher into the bread basket of the country with farms clinging to these hills up to an elevation above 8000ft. The lodge we used had wonderful spa treatments, the freshest food, great view of Panama’s tallest mountain (Volcan Baru) and included a hike in the cloud forest. One day we hiked the famous Quetzal trail to Boquete and even were lucky enough to spot one of these elusive, emerald green quetzal birds.  Boquete is a little lower and is well known for its flowers and coffee plantations but also has zip lines, white water rafting and rock climbing for the more adventurous.

          Before crossing the continental divide, we stopped at some nice little hot springs and cooled off in the Chiriqui River.  The views were amazing as we approached Bocas Del Toro.  This is a perfect place to wind up the tour. We visited another national park, sailed with dolphins, snorkeled by the mangroves and enjoyed the Caribbean nightlife.  Unfortunately, we also had to catch our flight back to Panama City and no one wanted to leave. 

           Our guide left the island the night before so he was there when we landed.  We had plenty of time to test our siesta skills and freshen up before our last night’s dinner. The guide knew the perfect place with exceptional views of the skyline at night. Seeing that our flight wasn’t until late the next day, we decided to test out the cities legendary nightlife… we were not disappointed!

          It is easy to see why Panama is becoming such a popular place to travel.  Safe and inexpensive, friendly people and beautiful places, adventure and wildlife, culture and history all make this a place that everyone will enjoy. Thanks to Kevin, our guide with Panama Breezes (www.barefootpanama.com) we had a most memorable vacation and will talk about it for years to come.

      Paradise Island is located off of Nasseau, Bahamas. You could reach the island by a ferry boat or cab. It was a beautiful beach with clear blue waters.

      Yes,  virgin beaches do still exist. This one is miles and miles long and you are bound to find lots of coconuts, little crabs, birds... but no people! :-)

      This beach is in El Cedro, Miches. Miches is a little port of 800 inhabitants at the south entrance to the Bahiá Samaná (Dominican Republic).  You may want to go with a local, this is pretty remote!
