Bocas, the Other Side of the Island

On our first full day in Bocas, we rented bikes and had a great time. The second day we decided to get back on the bikes and try to see a bit of the other side of the island. Who would have thought it would be so different over there!

We rode north along the beach to get to the fork in the road, and this time we went left instead of right. We quickly found we were in a very different type of area with hills, many tall trees, and lots of birds!

We didn’t go far in this direction since it was a bit late in the day, and we had already spent most of the day before on bikes. I was very interested to see this much of the other side though, and maybe next time we can go the whole way. We were passed by a bus on its way to Playa Boca del Drago on the end of the island, so that would be another way to see the whole length of this side.

I’ll close this post with a bit of video. Listen to all the birds!

    That really is a pretty part of the island. Loved all the birds singing.


    • I thought so too, and I love the birds also. I feel so lucky to live on the outskirts of David because we have so many here too and I get to listen to them all the time.

    I played the bird video for my cats and their ears perked up. They didn’t know where it was coming from.
