A WONDERFUL PLACE PEDASI, PANAMA

A few days ago my girlfriend and I were in Pedasi to visit my father at his project.  The next morning we got up early and went to receive an update on the project.

In the afternoon we decided to have dinner at a restaurant called Amarettos, located in the Playa Destiladeros.  There was a beautiful moon, what seemed like a million stars, an amazing breeze, and great food.  We liked it so much we decided to book for lunch the next day.

We got up early and went to the beach Destiladeros.  We walked and talked about our future and went to lunch at Amarettos, where we ordered a bottle of wine and spent the day on the beach beds.

American, European; the Pedasi community is pretty big. We decided to order the famous ribs with mashed potatoes and salad, the best of the best; fully recommended ..

In the night we decided to have dinner at the Isla Iguana Restaurant, which has a menu of seafood, meat, etc.  I started with shrimp crevice, prawns "a la criolla " with fried yucca.

The next morning we decided go to ISLA IGUANA, 25 minutes from the Playa el Arenal.  There we found turquoise waters, white sand and coral reefs; perfect for fishing, and snorkeling.

In the afternoon went to the dam at the La Represa River in Pedasi.  This dam was made at the time of the Second World War, to provide water to the military.  It's located within a private farm, so you can go walking but always leave everything clean.

I spent my last day at my father's project and rode my father's horse through beautiful trails.  Then we sat in the park of the house of my father, and I asked him how it feels to live in Pedasi.  He said  "It's the best thing that happened to me in my life.  I would not change anything.  I work on the project and I feel totally relaxed."
