          This trip was unchartered territory for our family of four. We are cautious about new adventures. We've been to many Caribbean destinations but never Central/South America.

          A stunning luxury private retreat accessed by boat. It was so beautiful, quiet and peaceful, overlooking the water with the forest as a backdrop. Heaven. We explored the town of Portobello with its old cathedral and the ruins of a Spanish fort.
