It’s no secret that I love a bit of sunshine. So when I booked my ticket down to visit my friend Jess in South America, my only request was at least one proper beach day. A day where there was nothing to do but have plenty of girl talk, read magazines, soak up the sun, cool off in the saltwater.
Taboga Island was the perfect spot for the perfect beach day. Easily accessible by ferry, it’s about 45 minutes from Panama City and costs about $11 round-trip. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves for the day, running into the few other ferry passengers while picking up cheap ceviche and plantains for lunch.
