Back to Santa Catalina, Panama

I didn’t want to write a single post with a hundred photos, so I broke up my collection a bit. Earlier was a post with some photos of the hotel and grounds. These are some photos of the town and a few beach photos.

Since it was just before the holidays parades, the school kids here were also practicing their drumming. I was a bit surprised that there was a school big enough, and that there was a parade for them to be in. This town is so remote that the nearest town with a store is an hour away. But, these festivities are very important to the Panamanians so I’m sure these kids were taken to wherever they needed to be.


I will finish up with a few photos of the beach in front of the hotel.

    Hi Kris. Where are you? I found Santa Catalina on the Carib coast. It looks out in the middle of nowhere… Am I right? How are the roads? It looks great! Thanks for the photos. David.


    • The Santa Catalina we went to is on the Pacific coast. Look for the Azuero Peninsula, a large land mass that hangs down from the south side of the country. Santa Catalina is west, the next and smaller land mass west of the Azuero P. There is nothing there. It’s very remote, just a surfing village. The nearest store is an hour away (if you don’t count the little convenience store in town). The roads are excellent, up and down and windy through the hills but in very good condition. I’m posting the last set of photos shortly and you can see the roads in some of them.
