Sailing for dollars.
A long day of sailing, a 45 minutes trip in an overfilled chicken bus, one hour taxi ride to get just 500US$ cash. Yes, our life in San Blas paradise is wonderful, but one day we had to come down to the earth and think how we can get cash. San Blas (Kuna Yala) is a true paradise – but… did you ever see ATMs in paradise? So to get cash we had to sail to the mainland, back to civilisation. We arrived to Linton Bay and should go to Portobelo… But in the reality everuthing was not so easy…
By the way, ATMs here at the Atlantic coast of Panama are so rare because they get frequently robbed. If you want to come to San Blas and cruise here stock up very well with cash.
Later on we met here again our friends from Life on Jupiter and had a adventurous trip through a small channel in the mangroves. You might remember them our film “The ultimate performance cruising catamaran. The most affordable, comfortable and fast sailing cats” https://youtu.be/2paM4zxnf_o. They are sailing on a Mumby aluminium catamaran.
Ang YESSS! We bought a new dinghy – a perfect light weight (as it should be on a performance sailing catamaran) Caribe dinghy.
Love, Peace and Ocean Breeze
