I came to Portobelo with the hope of sailing through the Panama Canal (something I didn't succeed with). While walking the streets to find someone who could help me I stumbled in to a sail repair shop called Casa Vela. To my surprise, this was also a bar/resaurant with cheap drinks and great German-inspired food. Also to a very reasonable price. What struck me the most though was the friendliness and warmth of Birgit and Ray, the German couple who owns the place. They helped me with everything I needed and made sure to spread the word of my intentions. If you ever find yourself in Portobelo, this is a must visit. Pop in for a dollar beer and and listen to all the crazy (true or false, who knows) sailor stories that goes around the tables.
