Hi, all. We're heading to Panama for a couple weeks.
Any footwear tips for Boquete and Bocas del Toro?
In Bocas, I expect we'll do at least a couple jungle trail hikes, and of course visit some beaches. In Boquete, we plan to do at least a one day or half day hike.
Having a hard time deciding whether or not to lug my hiking boots. Also, I don't own sport sandals --- are these advisable?
Right now I'm leaning towards:
- "hipster" black running shoes for bars and restaurants (and Panama City);
- old beat up running shoes for hiking and boat trips,
- water shoes (light and compressable); and
- light flip flops (which I can only wear for short periods of time without getting blisters).
I know this probably seems like a dumb thing to ask about, but we are trying to travel as light as possible and I just don't know what'll be needed given the locales and the activities we'll be doing. I love my hiking boots but they take up a lot of space and weight So if I'm not really going to need them it seems silly to bring them.
Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks!
