A little disarming to see all of the police with assault rifles around but we had a great time. Walked up to see the cliff divers and visited a nice little market a couple of blocks from the waterfront.
We went on the "Real Coffee Experience" and loved it. Beautiful ride to the plantation and we stopped for lunch on the way back in the town of Sarchi. It calls itself the oxcart capital of the world and for good reason. Beautifully painted oxcarts and a tour of the factory where they've been building and fixing them for decades. Very interesting.
Highlight of the trip!! Extremely interesting!! Our cruise picked up a guide who explained features of the canal over the loudspeaker as we passed through the canal. Got to see the new locks (from a distance) as we traveled through the old ones. Quite the engineering marvel!!
We took a taxi to the old city and spent the day roaming around. What a beautiful city! Stopped at a cafe for coffee and lemonade. Lots of street vendors pushing their wares but round a corner and there would be nobody. Loved the architecture!
