Daniel, thank you very much for the adventure in Bocas del Toro, and for extending the invitation and warm welcome to Carolina. The hotel is in the best location. The friendship from you and the other guests for the week will live long with us. My two words for Gabriel are simpatico and carpaccio, and he made a lot of effort in looking after us.
While it took a couple of days for the weather to settle down, the experience in the rainstorm was exhilarating and elemental, and made us appreciate the calm seas and sun even more when they arrived. Our guides Alberto and Kike were excellent, always looking after our fishing and comfort. We particularly loved the journeys through the canals seeing the bird life and the vegetation.
In spells the fishing was memorable with 5 Jacks in successive drifts on the Sixaola, to the Thursday afternoon and Friday morning on the Changuinola when the big tarpon showed in numbers and gave us the real idea of the potential of the area. The drifts were long, varied, and consistently tarpon were feeding. I enjoyed the thrill of the take a number of times, and 2 good fights with strong acrobatic fish.
Best of luck to you and your guests for the rest of the Bocas season. I will be very interested to hear how they get on.
