Central America Caribbean » Panama » Veraguas December 28th 2014

The second part of the trip was going to Panama. I spent a few days in Panama City, then travelled to Coiba NP. To a small city called Santa Catalina. Santa Catalina is a really chilled out place, far away from the big city life. In Coiba NP I went diving again. A very different thing than diving Bonaire. Coiba NP is more rocky, not as tropical corals... but beautiful as well. It was a three day, two night stay on Coiba Island, on a ranger station. Wonderful experience and a great time with nice dive buddies....:-) some videos...:-) ... read more

Diving on Bonaire with Bonnie, my great divebuddy. We stayed on Bonaire from Dec.11th to 21th and did quite a lot of diving - 28 dives alone on Bonaire... and had a tiny bit of trouble with equipment, and a few other things- it caused some stress on us. However the diving and the island of Bonaire was great. We also had great dives (her 100th, the dives around Klein-Bonaire, the Saltpier) and some eerie nightdives (with hunting tarpons). I liked especially diving the Hilma Hooker, the afternoon dive at windsock and the dives around Klein-Bonaire. I liked the corals and reef fish- great moments were the squids around us , a crab and moray in a hole, the angelfish. I missed some large pelagic fish, however (besides the tarpons). Maybe the greatest dive was our ... read more

Central America Caribbean » Curaçao December 15th 2014

A few days for diving in Curacao. Together with Bonnie, my dear divebuddy... we met in Curacao on Dec. 7th, had 4 days of diving on Curacao... but on the 3rd dive of the first day my camera flooded. Same situation as the year before in Belize...:-( But fortunately we still had Bonnie's Camera and as I am quite a bit addicted to photography she let me have it a lot of the dives. Thank you so much again! Diving Curacao was very nice and it was a good thing to get into diving these islands. Preparation for Bonaire... ... read more
