Two girlfriends and I drove from Boquete to Almirante last week, where we were met by Izzy for the short boat ride to Isla Cristobal and Casa Selva del Mar. From beginning to end, we thoroughly enjoyed our tranquil, homey three-day stay. The accommodations were comfortable, the villas well-equipped with everything we needed. The breakfasts of fruit, juice, yogurt, cereal, and homebaked goodies were welcoming and filling, and the three dinners we enjoyed with Susan and Izzy were delicious. They warm, friendly, and stimulating hosts, whose friendship we will treasure. We took jungle walks, swam off the dock, snorkled the nearby reef, and relaxed on the spacious porch and deck of our villa. All in all, it was a perfect getaway.
