Bocas Del Toro makes Laura Macchiavello Loca

This summer I traveled to Bocas Del Toro, Panama with my mother and brother. It was our fifth time in Panama, visiting my crazy uncle Daniel. Bocas is undoubtedly one of my favorite places to visit. We went whitewater rafting through the jungle, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, island hopping and sailing in the warm Caribbean sea, but the most memorable part of the trip was cave exploring.

The cave was located deep in the jungle. A cold, freshwater river flowed through it, so while walking in the cave the water at times reached to my chest. The cave was pitch black and the only light we had were our headlamps, which only illuminated two feet in front of your nose at the most. One thing you were able to see was the shadows from the hundreds of bats flying inches away from your face. The end of the cave lead to a large underground pool fed by a five-foot waterfall. It was a breathtaking experience.
