Yes.
And raptors.
If I get around to posting pictures, the mountains immediately to the north of the bay are about 2000' in elevation, the volcano is about 14000'.

On one hike (which we found out later is named the Culebra trail (the snake trail), crossed a clear creek and could see fish feeding. Went back up with our fly rods and caught a bunch of Rainbow Trout on Clousers...the only flies I happened to have that a trout would eat. Turns out there is a trout farm upstream, and they escaped and are now wild in the stream....

This is on the Atlantic side. We're trying to get down in the next month or two to check out the pacific side before we commit.

Kind of.
I'm trying to integrate into the natural surroundings vs. popping up cabanas, although Jeff has been more than forthcoming w/ his business plan for Cayo Frances.

My plan so far is about 5 cabanas, each w/ their own distinct style, for instance a treehouse, an over the water bungalow, w/ glass floor.
There are trees on this property that are twelve feet around, there are balsa trees that the local Indians build dugouts from...very cool.
Still in the planning stages.

Yeah, no, not horror stories, why didn't US do that?
Every shithole Chinese grocery scans you, sprays you, and you have to disinfect your feet.
Facial recognition covid scans at the airports...they're not fucking around.
Prb don't have the hospital capacity so they force mandates.
...Or they're smarter than our govt was, which is my bet.

Actually, I'll have to sell it if we do it. I'll need to buy a panga. Pangas are amazing.
Way too much big open water for my tunnel.

I am soooo looking forward to seeing this thread really get some legs with shovels in the ground - and pics!! BTW, don't hire boat boys. Surely, there must be some bikini worthy Panamanians that can drive a boat!?!!?
