Parque Simon Bolivar, Bocas del Toro, Panama, 2014[open in full screen]  

 
 

In the middle of Panama’s Caribbean archipelago, Bocas del Toro until very recently was a hidden, nine-island prize for adventurous travellers.

Today, new hotels and restaurants are unveiled every few months, added to the great combination of races and ethnicities, living in harmony with indigenous, Western Caribe peoples, Latino’s and "extraneous".

 

This square/park in the centre of the town of Bocas del Toro is celebrating Simon Bolivar famous leader in the political struggle for independence familiar name in many Latino American countries.

Square is located in quite unexpected urbanized area on the south tip of the Colon island in this otherwise beautiful archipelago with overwhelming natural beauty.

  Park is shaded by mango trees and royal palms. Children play here, and locals chat on its cement benches in the evening. North of the park stands the Palacio Municipal, a large cement building that houses various government offices.
