Panama Countryside Views

We drove across the country to the Caribbean side to see entirely different views. The ruins of the fort overlooking the sea near Portabello.

We were delayed by a herd of water buffalo crossing the road in the countryside near Isla Grande.

You can see the fish in the water near the yacht basin in Panama City. The water is beautiful and blue and clear on the Pacific side. When we got the the Caribbean side, the waves were just boiling into the shore because of the earthquake in Haiti the day before.

Beautiful verdant fields stretch from the road to the mountains along the road between Colon and Portabello.
