Just off the plane, we were greeted by Scott from Red Frog Bungalows. A short boat ride later through the mangroves we arrived at the site. The service was great the whole trip. The best part of staying at Red Frog was the very friendly atmosphere. The site is beautiful and takes you back from life in the city in a second. Unless you are extremely high maintenance, Red Frog is more than you could ask for in a beautiful jungle atmosphere. The bungalows are very cool. They are three stories and have a very comfortable feeling. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the caribbean ocean crashing on the shore us unbeatable. One of the things that I judge my stay on anywhere in the world is the food. THE FOOD WAS EXCELENT! Mike and Leanna are great chefs. They make a variety different types of food catered to your liking. Breakfast was perfect and made fresh every morning at the time we asked. During our stay we had lobster bisque, lasgna, fish plates, gyros, and more. All of the food was very fresh and filling. I can't say enough about the atmosphere; eating dinner every night outdoors in the warm Panamanian air surrounded by friends and family was the best. If you are coming for the surf, it is fabulous. There are always uncrowded waves. One thing that everyone was worried about going to Red Frog was mosquitos. The mosquitos were NOT an issue. The jungle was very vibrant and full of life. For example, we saw monkeys, parrots, lots of birds, and fish snorkeling. Red Frog Bungalows is a great way to jump into paradise right off the plane.
Thanks Scott, Mike, Leanna, and Chato!
