Braving Boca Brava (Part 5)

By now we were all in a state of shock. The appearance of the strange creature at Boca Brava caught us off guard. Its ugliness was the stuff of nightmares and we weren’t prepared for this horrible encounter. We had gone there to make a movie and never in our wildest dreams did we expect to find hell itself as personified by this insane abomination.

After a few minutes negotiating with captains of speed boats in Boca Chica in Chiriqui, I finally made the connection to the island. Two aluminum catamarans were to carry us to Paradise Hotel — the only available accommodations in the Conservation Park.
