The River, revisited

We hadn’t been down to the river for a while, so it was time for a visit (with camera in hand, of course)


We have been told that there are spots even more beautiful than this, but I’ll always love this place!

    Great photos. I’m curious to know what kind of fish are found in your river.

    I’ve been thinking about retirement in Panama for a long while. It was not even a remote possibility until just recently. Can you tell me the best way to find temp housing for a month or two so I can get a feel for local living. I’d like to avoid paying a Gringo rate if possible. Would prefer fully furnished/close to transportation. Is it possible to pm you instead of posting here? Thanks so much.

      I don’t fish so I’m afraid I don’t know anything about what fish are in the river. The fisherman seemed to be catching something fairly small, maybe 6-10 inches long. I’ll send you and email and we can talk about your other questions 🙂

    Great pictures, very serene…
    Here in DR, we “swim” in the rivers. More aptly, we sit in them on the rocks etc. The water is very clear. Are the rivers in Panama used in the same way?

      Yep, quite a few people here also swim (or sit) in the river. I’m told this is more common in summer (Dec – Apr) because it’s hotter, the water is clearer in the dry weather, and more people have vacation at this time. People also just hang out by the river, make fires between river rocks and cook food, and have family gatherings. I’ve also seen young guys climbing trees over the river and jumping in, sometimes from scary heights. On a warm holiday weekend it’s common to find quite a few people by the river.
