Cabot's Log

Perlas Islands

Posted: February 3, 2001 February 3, 2001
Off to Contadora in the Perlas Islands. Good to be under way. Left a package of frozen meat in the freezer at PMBC, but Hugo of Hugo's Yacht Services put it on a plane to Contadora for us. The local plane service is excellent with frequent and inexpensive flights to all the islands in both oceans.

The hard NE winds that are common this time of year made most Perlas anchorages less than exciting so we moved on to San Jose to see Dieter and Gerda, a German couple who have been subsistence living here since our last trip in 1987. They remembered us well and we were able to fill the boat with fruit from their trees. They have given up on selling vegetables; they were just not able to keep the animals and bugs from them. There is a new hotel in this bay owned and run by Novey's, the big hardware chain in Panama. Very friendly to visiting yachts.

Where to now?
