The road less traveled . . .

Ever since my early travel days (Nigeria and Europe in the mid 60's) I've always tended to take the road less traveled. Motorcycling in the bush (jungle), hitchhiking - frequently taking the fork in the road that had the fewest cars, and riding the train - where I would pick a destination simply because it was in a different color on the schedule board. I've always chosen the unknown over the familiar - hey, we're living in Panama, so I guess not much has changed.
Hotel Playa Cambutal. New, small (10 rooms), right on the beach and QUIET (except for the occasional yell from the monkeys that resided across the road). Owned by a young married couple Albeiro and Haley (he is Columbian, she is US born) who were our gracious hosts, cooked most of our meals (very good) and helped us explore the area.
Wags says: Hey, I really liked this place - no leash needed! Lots of sniffing around, walking on the beach and playing in the water. Crossed a river, got pulled across but I swam back on my own which was more fun. The waterfall was neat.
Our four days in Cambutal was just what we needed.
Take care. Hope you have a chance to explore some of those "roads less traveled" out there.
