Puerto Viejo: Where my Wallet went to Die 

You know how I said Bocas del Toro is where my wallet went to die? I lied, Puerto Vieo holds that prize issuing the killing blow to an already sad and struggling budget. Though I cringed every time I had to go to the grocery store or every time we looked at a menu I […]

DIY Border Crossing: Panama to Costa Rica

After two weeks of eating way too much, devouring all that Netflix had to offer, lots of kitty snuggles, and straight up laziness Eli and I decided it was time to go. Though we love to have our lazy days that’s something we can do at home and we felt like we were wasting time […]

Ballin’ on a Budget: Boquete

After scanning through our […]

Puerto Lindo: The village that drop kicked us right out of our comfort zone

Our first workaway was in the tiny village of Puerto Lindo. I’ve never really thought of how small a village is until we got to Puerto Lindo, with all one hundred residences she is definitely a village. Puerto Lindo was really cool because there was a mix of Spanish and caribe culture. The houses were […]
