Recently I posted the photos from the Jose Cuervo Destileria, which is located in the town of Tequila. Obviously the original seller of tequila in the region is a hot spot, but the town has a ton to offer. There are incredible restaurants, festivals and events nearly every day of the summer, and incredible scenery all around.

We have been very fortunate to have been accommodated by some great hostels as we traveled through Central America and Mexico. These amazing places showed immense hospitality, had incredible services, thoughtful staffs, and were a great place to rest our travel-tired heads as we ventured across their countries.
luna1 A stay at Luna’s Castle was the beginning of my part of the expedition, and I couldn’t have asked for a better start. This hostel, in a beautiful, three-story colonial home has an aesthetically pleasing interior, creative artwork covering the walls, and balconies that give a stellar, immediate view of the Casco Viejo neighborhood with the downtown skyline across in the distance. The chill and peaceful atmosphere give the hostel a great feel, and the helpful staff make you feel right at home. The community kitchen is perfect for cooking meals, the commons area is a great place to eat and talk with other travels, and the “chill rooms” give a person a chance to relax, chat, or just have a thought. Rooms are reasonably priced, and their variety of services make it a perfect stop for travelers. The movie theatre in the bottom level is top notch, and their plans for a bar in the back patio will really add to the already incredible hostel. Do us a favor and stop in to say “hi” to Daniel and his crew for us. Luna’s Castle is a special place in Panama City, and you won’t be disappointed.
The crew and our week-on-the-road-warriors (Shoppman’s sister, Katie and her husband, Nate) awoke Sunday morning in our ocean-side rustic cabana in Nexpa. Nate did some masterful mechanic tricks on the Sequoia over the weekend, so we were set to head to Barra de Navidad.
