While we in the rest of the country are sopping through the rainiest days of the rainy season, the islands of Bocas del Toro, out on Panama’s Caribbean coast, are enjoying sunny days and blue skies. To celebrate, as they do every year this time, the good people of this archipelago are making preparations for their annual Del Mar Fair: calypso music, boat racing, fishing competitions, and an international crafts fair, with displays from craftsmen from Peru, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Colombia, and here in Panama.
Little Bocas is looking for 20,000 visitors over the 10 days of the festival. We’re hoping to join them. See www.bocas.com.
